Adding a window well egress to a stone foundation in Bryn Mawr, PA
This homeowner in Bryn Mawr, PA had just a standard basement window. They reached out to Steelway to enquire about turning it into an egress window so that they could finish the basement. Since they have a stone foundation, the well around the window would have to be poured on-site. No problem for our incredible concrete division. The crew cut into the patio around the current well, dug out the well, placed the rebar, set the forms, poured the concrete, cut the stone foundation for the new egress window, installed PVC pipe to drain into the sump pit, pulled the forms, installed the window, placed the ladder, and finally installed the egress cover! This all happens over several days, but it’s no problem for our concrete division! They take pride in their work, and it shows. Another happy customer in Bryn Mawr, PA!
