With today’s housing costs, more and more homeowners are discovering that a remodeled, dry basement is the most affordable way to increase the value and amount of living space in the home. A basement egress window system installed by Standard Water Control helps transform your basement into usable living space by adding light and ventilation. These windows also add code-compliant emergency egress to basements; especially important when some members of the family sleep in the lowest level of the house. 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. They’re typically made of materials that can rust, decompose or become food for bugs; necessitating replacement in the future. Worst of all, they do not give your family a way out in case of fire or other emergency. Basement egress windows, installed by Standard Water Control in Minnesota and western Wisconsin can transform a dark and uninviting cellar into clean, code-compliant living space. Properly installed egress windows increases the value and beauty of your home – and most importantly – create an escape route for your family in case of emergency.
