Egress Windows for a Safe and Beautiful Finished Basement

A finished basement is a perfect spot for additional living space and entertainment. However, it’s important to ensure that you comply with local building codes when renovating your basement. One of the important aspects when it comes to basement renovation is the installation of egress windows. 

Egress windows are designed to provide an opening large enough for a person to exit or enter in case of emergency such as a fire. They come in different sizes, materials, and designs, and can be installed to complement your basement’s style. 

In addition to their safety features, egress windows bring a host of other benefits to your finished basement. They let in natural light, which helps to brighten up your living space. Natural light is particularly important if your basement lacks windows, making it feel dim and gloomy. 

Installation Requirements

Egress window installation is not just about cutting a hole in the wall. It requires technical knowledge, experience, and compliance with building codes. Hiring a professional contractor with the experience and expertise to safely and properly install an egress window is always recommended. 

Regular maintenance can help improve your windows’ longevity and prevent issues like mold or water damage. Clean the window frame and sills regularly and consider sealing windows to improve energy efficiency.
