Egress Window Installation

We’ll Make Sure Your Basement Meets International Residential Codes

The International Residential Code (IRC) requires all basements with living space and every sleeping room to have at least one openable emergency escape and rescue opening. Before you finish your basement, it is a good idea to have a Ram Jack consultant visit and review your basement to plan for this required emergency escape. We can determine where the best location(s) would be to install an egress window(s).

Below are some common code requirements Egress Window:

  1. Shall have a sill height of not more than 44 inches above the floor.
  2. All emergency escape and rescue openings shall have a minimum net clear opening of 5 square feet.
  3. Minimum clear opening width of 20 inches.
  4. Minimum clear opening height is 24 inches.

Ram Jack has the necessary tools and equipment to install your egress window(s)...

The process is handled very smoothly with our Project Manager reviewing your foundation and designing a plan of installation. He will provide you with a detailed written proposal stating the work to be done and also the estimated costs.

Once you make a decision to move forward with your egress window installation, he will arrange to obtain the necessary building permits and schedule a crew to do the installation.

Our crews are expertly trained in the installation of egress windows. Most of the excavations to install an egress window are done by hand to avoid any damage to the landscaping. It is important that the window has proper drainage to protect the basement from flooding. Attention to downspouts and other drainage is critical. It is important that all water be directed to a location away from the foundation and the window well opening so that surface water does not flow into the window well and into the basement.
