Downtown Window Opening

Last week we started on (and completed) a large window opening for a great client in Toronto. His condo had a corner window wich was not really pleasing to the eye. He wanted the window moved to match the three on the left (to the same height).

Here is our scaffold set up (safety first, kids).

Once we set up the scaffolding, we took out the window and bricked in/opened up where needed.

Once we toothed the bricks and opened the brick wall to the desired height and width, the window was installed. We also added a sleek brick window sill to ensure water didn’t get in.

Here is the final product:

I like to show potential customers the scope of work on some jobs so you have an idea of what you should be looking for from contractors. Here it is:

Window openings

  • Set up scaffold in alley way to gain access to window opening
  • lay bricks to size to fit new window
  • install new steel lintels, ensuring there is a minimum of 6” bearing either side of the opening
  • install new window sill
  • match mortar colour and bricks as close as possible to existing wall
  • full clean up of job site

And there you have it! If you receive an estimate from a contractor that does not list one of the above when doing this kind of work, please ask about it and stay informed! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me as well. I would be happy to hear from you.
