Why should I install an egress window?
Basement egress windows transform dark, dank basements into bright, inviting living spaces. A finished basement with egress windows provides new living areas and a level of comfort you can’t get from artificial light. Egress windows also create an emergency escape route, which means you can use your space as a bedroom.
Are all basement windows the same?
Not every basement window is an egress window. To meet code, an egress window must have an opening of a certain size. If you plan to create a bedroom in the basement, you must have egress windows that adhere to local codes. Only an egress window provides a means of exit from the basement.
Can’t I install basement windows myself?
Installing an egress window is a complex task. You’ll need to satisfy building codes and obtain a permit. You’ll need to contact the utility company, too.
