Egress Windows

Trust the Egress Window Experts

For basements, egress windows must be at least 36 inches (but that can vary slightly) in width and height and have a fully functioning opening. If a basement window is more than 44 inches from the ground, a ladder or steps at least 12 inches wide must be present. Basement egress windows must also include window wells that provide enough clearance to allow escape.

    Steve was helpful, prompt and courteous. He brought over samples of stone to choose from. He explained everything he was doing, called to give updates and did a very good job. The stone work looks great.

    They came when they said they would come and kept me informed of what they were doing along the way... no surprises! I was very happy with the quality of work and cost was reasonable. I was recommended by a friend who was also happy with their work. Recommend.

    We had Steve and his team complete our masonry project. They were very knowledgeable professional. They informed us on all progress, were on time and cleaned up after the job was complete. We would highly recommend Clayson Construction. We in fact have them quoting on another job for the spring.

    Steve and his team were incredible to work with and very professional. We just purchased our first home and needed repair to our rear sliding door concrete sill. After commencing work we discovered our structural supporting sill plate and rim boards under our double sliding door was completely dry rot. Steve went the extra mile and replaced all of the dry rot with new material at reasonable cost. Extremely pleased with the finished product. Would definitely hire him again and refer him to all of our friends and family.

    Steve was timely courteous and took the time to explain to me different options. I had called 6 masons previous to this and they told me what I wanted couldn't be done. Steve explained possible options was on budget and even assisted with setting up a subcontractor when needed.

    We were very pleased with the overall experience with Clayson Construction from start to finish. Steve the owner was quick to respond to my initial message for a quote, came to the house when he said he was going to, provided a fair and reasonable quote, and most importantly did a wonderful job of replacing 2 crumbling brick sills with limestone sills. It's obvious that Steve takes pride in his work and would rather do the job properly than to rush or cut corners - something that is a rare find these days. Excellent workmanship. We highly recommend this company and wouldn't hesitate to work with them again.
