Emergency Exits

Egress windows add emergency exits to your basement. They replace old and outdated windows with new casement windows designed ideally for basement window wells that have little space. Because basement exits are often limited in older homes, egress windows acting as an emergency exit are the law when a to remodel occurs.

Know the Code

In all instances where living areas are being planned for basements, knowing the code on basement egress windows will save you headaches. To ensure that your basement falls under the rules and requirements for installing egress windows, refer to the International Code Council (ICC) for the set regulations in your hometown.

Learn the Options

Basement egress windows aren’t limited in style.

It is also a good idea to work with your basement waterproofing contractor with whether your home needs retrofit construction.
