What You Need to Know About Installing an Egress Window

If you’re looking for a way to increase the natural light in your home, or for another way out of your basement in case of emergency, installing an egress window may be the perfect solution. Here are some guidelines that you should follow when having an egress window installed. 

The most important step to take is to make sure it complies with local building codes. The codes will dictate what type of materials you need to use and how large the window must be. It’s also important to make sure that there isn’t any existing wiring or plumbing blocking where the window will go. 

It’s best to hire a qualified installer who has experience working with egress windows. They will have all of the necessary tools and knowledge needed to properly install the window and ensure that it meets code requirements. 

Egress windows come in many shapes and sizes. Make sure yours is large enough so anyone can easily fit through it in case of emergency evacuation, but not so large it takes away from the overall aesthetic of your house. 

Egress windows provide practical and aesthetic benefits. Before taking on this project, it is important to check local building codes and hire a qualified installer who has experience working with them. With these guidelines in mind, you can start your journey towards installing an egress window with confidence!
