When it comes to basement windows QC Concrete Cutting does it all. We like to hand trench all of our holes to reduce property damage that may occur from bobcats. Also by digging by hand we reduce the chance of damaging buried conduit ex. gas and electric lines. We can trench deep enough to just fit a window well and gravel or all the way down to your homes footing to tap in to the weeping tile and bring a drainage pipe up into the window well for properties that have poor drainage.We can remove dirt off the property or for no extra charge we can move all excess dirt to another part of your property. Usually about six full wheel barrel’s of dirt is what is left over after we back fill in the window wells.
When it comes down to cutting your concrete to create new openings or enlarging existing openings we have the industries most advanced concrete wall saws. We are able to cut rite through your foundation all from one side of your concrete. Our saws are capable of cutting 32″ deep into your foundation so there are no homes in Calgary with foundations to thick for us to cut. (usually we find most homes foundation to be 8″ thick) After we cut out your opening we also push the concrete slab into the hole, break in up with power tools and sludge hammers then if you like we remove all the broken cement off the property. We make cutting and breaking concrete look easy.

Window and Window Well Installation
QC Concrete Cutting has two styles of window installation. One style is the direct concrete mount install where we cut off the windows nailing fin and install rite into the concrete opening. The other install involves putting a 2/8 pressure treated wood buck inside the cut out then installing the window into that with the nailing fin on, to finish this window we smart trim around the wood buck and nailing fin to give it a presentable image. After the window is installed we install the well. For this we bolt it rite into the foundation to prevent any shifting and make sure it is level, some cases we bolt two window wells together if your window is more than 22″ bellow grade. To finish it off we add gravel and back fill all around your new window well.
