Egress Window Installation
Egress windows are large openings that offer a secondary exit in case of an emergency. They can also add more natural light and make your basement feel more inviting. Finished basements are a wonderful way to add extra living space to your home. Basement bedrooms and living spaces are required to have egress windows. The International Residential Housing Code requires at least two exits in every basement bedroom and living room and the secondary escape route must meet several requirements, including a minimum height and width? You can’t enclose a regular foundation window in a basement bedroom and call it “good enough”.
An egress window can add substantial value to your home and allows you to legally market a basement space as a bedroom. ... Egress windows are also one of the few projects in which you can typically recover more than the cost, in resale value.
At Spartan Ram Jack, we know there’s a lot more to egress window installation than just cutting the foundation and installing an appropriately sized window. It is also crucial to install adequate drainage around the new egress to avoid damage to your foundation.
If you are considering finishing your basement, give Spartan Ram Jack a call! We can discuss your plans and let you know what is needed to meet code requirements. If you’ve already remodeled but didn’t know you needed egress windows, we can help you make your new basement a safe place to be.
