Window well installation - Granby
What is a coping? Do you need it?
The number one enemy of the houses is without a doubt the water. Water infiltration, mold growth, moisture problems, etc. Water problems can manifest themselves in many ways, as damaging to your property as to the health of its occupants.
Having windows in your basement therefore requires additional protection to ensure peace of mind incomparable. That's why you should install the curbs to protect your home. The curbs provide an effective barrier of protection by preventing water infiltration through basement windows or small cracks located near windows. Whether steel, stone, concrete or wood, your window surround will be fixed to the foundations of your home and will retain the soil and water so they do not reach your window and your room.
It is also important to install ditch drainage system to prevent it from filling with water and cause additional damage and inconvenience to your property. We proceed by installing a ditch drain, that is to say a vertical duct of at least 6 inches in diameter, which will then be connected to the drainage pipes of your foundation. We may have to dig part of your lot to do this task. Know that we work efficiently and safely, in order to make your home as quickly as possible and in the best possible condition.
Comply with standards
Installing curbs can be a complex task; it requires the excavation of a small portion of the land, the installation of an effective drainage system of the curbs, a mastery of various tools, in addition to ensuring the compliance of the standards governing your property and your municipality.
Since the amendment to the Quebec Building Code in 2015, it is specified that all windows opening on a curb must be located at least 760 mm from the ground level. Your neighborhood or area may also need a clearance greater than 760 mm required; this is why we advise you to leave the work to be done to real professionals in installation of curbs. We check with your municipality the standards in force so that you have no surprises and that your property is regulatory.
We guarantee you a clean and safe job, effective against water damage and aesthetically beautiful.
