Egress Window Installation & Replacement

Egress Windows protect the safety of those in your home

Egress windows are a must-have for your basement or any part of your home that is below grade. What makes a window an egress window is that the window is large enough that it can open and allow people to pass through. Also, the area outside the window is cut directly into the ground. When working in tandem, these two features create an emergency escape route.

If there ever is an incident where those in your basement are unable to reach the stairs, the egress window can quickly become a life-saving exit for your home. This is why there are many building codes that involve egress windows. If your basement includes a living area or a bedroom, there is a good chance that you are required by law to have an egress window. Make sure that you consult an expert contractor when you are looking to have an egress window added to your home.

Only work with professionals when installing an egress window

There are factors that make hiring a contractor a requirement when installing or replacing your egress windows. The obvious factors are the building codes. With all the requirements that vary city by city, as well as the international building codes, you want to make sure that the company you hire is up to date on all the laws. Installing the wrong sized window in the wrong location can result in expensive fines and even more expensive remodeling work for your home.

Homeowners also need to be aware of how difficult it is to install an egress window. The home’s foundation may need to be cut. The opening is located below grade, so there is a high potential for leaks and flooding. In the worst case, your foundation may be compromised and your basement can be ruined by water damage. Hiring someone that is experienced in working with egress windows will help avoid these unnecessary damages.
