INCREASE HOME VALUE & LIVABILITY WITH EGRESS INSTALLATION

Today’s rising housing costs are causing more and more homeowners to create new space within their existing homes. Installing egress windows (along with basement waterproofing) is the most affordable way to create new livable space and increase your home’s value. 

Egress window installation in Minneapolis and the surrounding areas will improve your basement by adding light, ventilation, and an escape route if family members ever need to exit in case of emergency. 

Egress Window Code MN & Western WI 

Standard Water Control Systems only provides well window installations that follow the egress window codes in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. Additionally, we pull all required permits and ensure local requirements are followed. You can be confident that your windows are installed properly by experienced, licensed egress window contractors. 

BASEMENT EGRESS SOLUTIONS THAT MEET CODE

In many older homes, basement windows do not meet the egress window code in MN or WI. This makes basement living spaces potentially dangerous as there is no way to escape in the event of an emergency. In addition, non-code windows reduce your home’s value. 

Older windows are typically made of materials that can rust, decompose or be eaten by bugs. Replacing these windows is a small investment that brings big possibilities. With egress window installation you get a code compliant room with expanded light where you can sleep and spend time safely.

HOW STANDARD WATER INSTALLS AN EGRESS WINDOW IN 5 STEPS

Over the years we’ve honed our 5-step installation process to give you the best service in the Midwest.

Step 1: Filing The Paperwork
After a complimentary consultation where we walk you through the installation process from start to finish, Standard Water Control goes to work, pulling all the proper permits and locating all utility lines. Then your project can move forward safely and with no surprises.

Step 2: Excavation
Excavation for a basement egress window well can be a dangerous job in the wrong hands. Fortunately, our crews have been fully trained and take safety precautions for both your home’s and their own well-being.

Our team lays plywood on your lawn to protect high traffic areas. We then carefully excavate by hand to minimize any potential damage to your home. We then haul all dirt and debris away in our trucks so that you’re not burdened with it.

Step 3: Cutting The Hole
Sawing a hole through concrete for the installation of an egress window can get messy. We take precautions to minimize dust and preserve your home.

Standard Water’s highly experienced crew uses a specialized diamond-bladed ring saw on the outside of the masonry wall to minimize the mess inside your home. We then score the inside of the wall with a special jackhammer fitted with a chisel bit. The blocks are then pounded out with a good old-fashioned maul and a little sweat.

Step 4: Securing the Window
If your window isn’t secured with the best materials and workmanship, you may find yourself having to redo the job every few years. Water, mold or critters can damage a window that is compromised from the start.

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 and sealed with urethane caulk and special tape to create a high efficiency, insulated seal. We then install a rough-cut cedar trim that can be stained or painted at a later date. We finish by anchoring the window well to the wall and backfilling it with gravel to provide drainage and to help hold it in place.

Step 5: Drain Tile Incorporation
To ensure your new window protects against moisture, our employees incorporate a drain that ties your window well into your Standard Water Control System basement waterproofing system, if present.


As an optional step, we can even install an aesthetically pleasing window well cover that provides further protection.
