6 Benefits of Having an Egress Window

  1. 1. Why you should have an egress window installed!
  2. 2.  An egress window is a window designed to be large enough for a full-size man to climb out of in case of an emergency. It serves its purpose as being a window but it also acts as an exit.  Egress windows are typically found in basements because basements alone usually don’t have escape routes. These windows also open up to a well that sometimes has a ladder to make it easy to climb out.
  3. 3.  Since an egress window is so large, it lets in a good amount of natural light. This is nice for basement rooms that typically don’t get much light because of being underground.
  4. 4.  An egress window adds square footage to your home. More square footage equals more value, which equals more money when you’re trying to sell your home.
  5. 5.  Basements are especially dangerous in the event of an emergency, like a fire or flood. Fortunately, an egress window is large enough and easy enough to open that anyone can escape through it.
  6. 6.  The International Code Council made it a requirement for all finished basements with habitable space to have an egress window. If the basement has a bedroom, there must be an egress window in that room. These regulations are meant to keep those inhabiting the basement area safe.
  7. 7.  An egress window can actually be quite pretty, both from the inside and outside. You can use different materials for the well to make it match your home. It all depends on how much money you’re willing to spend to make it look nice.
  8. 8.  You could try installing an egress window yourself if you have the know-how, but the best way to get an egress window installed is to hire a someone to do it for you. That way you know it will be done accurately and it will be up to code.
  9. 9.  If you’re really interested in having an egress window installed in your basement, call a concrete cutting company. Such a company is perfectly suited to install egress windows through a contract negotiation. They have years of experience and they have the necessary tools to get the job done right.
