Don’t trust your new basement windows to just anyone. Trust the professionals in replacement basement windows.

Whether you’re making one of your basement windows bigger, replacing all your old basement windows for increased energy efficiency and more light, or undertaking a multi-housing renovation project, let CanWest Concrete Cutting’s highly trained operators bring the skills they use on major roadway or airport projects into your home to meet your concrete cutting needs.

We can cut, supply and install basement windows (supplied by us) professionally and quickly. You’ll appreciate the quality that results when you use an experienced concrete cutting and coring company for your residential replacement basement windows.


CanWest uses high quality egress slider windows – designed for emergency exit from a basement and to keep the heat in the home in winter and out in the summer. CanWest keeps windows in stock at all times, so unless your home needs a special size, delivery is immediate. We carry only galvanized metal window wells. CanWest is fully insured, a long standing member of the BBB and COR Safety qualified, with an A+ rating with WCB.


1 year warranty on windows which covers leaking under normal weather conditions.

We can easily install the windows we supply. However, if you pre-purchase your own windows you may need the actual window installation to be done by your supplier. This will be determined at the time the quote is done. A 30% deposit is required for specialty work/windows.

If your basement windows are too small we can enlarge them quickly and easily.

Our experienced operators will first excavate around the window well as needed, then using a wall-saw enlarge the window, or cut an entirely new window.

I am very pleased with the work that was done, and was especially impressed with Lee, whom even assisted me by referring me to an engineer who had to come in and assess the support needed for the wall after it was cut. This referral has worked out beautifully as well, and although I know he is not associated with Canwest, I am still grateful to have been pointed at him by Lee.

The supplied and installed window looks great, and the crew worked really hard that day. Many thanks to them as well. I have a terrible memory for names, but I believe it was Cody and John.

The one tiny detail I should have addressed already but haven’t bothered to yet is that I haven’t received a final bill or invoice for the job yet, but I assume that will arrive in due time.  I am not in any way complaining about this, and if I were at all concerned, I would have called already about it.  I did receive an estimate from Lee on the day he came to the site, and a work order from the operators.

I would definitely call Canwest again in the future if I needed similar work done.

Thanks for your follow-up, and please let everyone know how great of a job they did.”
