Step 4

Securing the Window

Installation of a basement egress window is a job you only want to do once. But unless your window is secured, and the best materials are used, you may find yourself stuck with this job every few years due to damage from water, mold or critters.

Standard Water Control has sent fully licensed, bonded and credentialed employees to install basement egress windows in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Dakotan homes for more than 30 years.

After we cut the egress window hole and remove the debris, we then trim the opening with green treated lumber. The window is then secured, sealed with urethane caulk and Protecto Wrap tape to ensure a high efficiency, insulated seal. We then install the rough cut cedar trim that can be stained or painted at a later date. We finish by anchoring the window well to the wall, backfilling it with gravel to provide drainage and help hold it in place.

When we leave your home, we will have helped you transform a dark and dingy basement into a bright and clean living space, with a basement egress window that will ensure it remains that way for generations to come.
