Cutting The Hole
Sawing a hole through concrete to facilitate the installation of a basement egress window can get messy. In the wrong hands, cleaning the mess left behind can take more time than the entire installation process.
Standard Water’s highly experienced crew uses a specialized diamond-bladed ring saw on the outside of the masonry wall to minimize the mess inside your home. We then score the inside of the wall with a special jackhammer fitted with a chisel bit. The blocks are then pounded out with a good old-fashioned maul and a little sweat.
For more than 30 years, the team at Standard Water Control has installed basement egress windows for homeowners in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and the Dakotas leaving you with a clean, livable and code compliant space.
