Most people know that egress windows are required by law in certain areas of the home, but what they may not realize is that these windows can also add value to your home. Egress windows are larger than standard windows and provide a clear exit in case of an emergency. In addition to their safety benefits, egress windows also let in natural light and can be used as an extra source of ventilation. As a result, they can help to brighten up a dark room and make it feel more spacious.
In most older homes basement windows do not meet code for egress, therefore, the rooms are not legal living space and have less value than a code compliant room someone can sleep in. Basement egress windows, installed by Standard Water Controlcan transform a dark and uninviting cellar into clean, code-compliant living space.
Our crew will dig the hole by hand to minimize any damage to the homeowner’s property, and protect underground utilities. A special diamond bladed hydraulic ring saw is used to cut through the outside of the basement wall to minimize the dust and mess on the inside Then the wall is pounded out with a good, old-fashioned maul. Your new egress window is installed and trimmed and your choice of window well is added.
