Egress Windows

Add valuable living space with new egress windows.

Adding an egress window to your basement allows you to add living space to your home’s lower level. As a result, you can create comfortable, functional new living space while also increasing the value of your home.

Why Choose Egress Windows?

In order to meet state building code, each bedroom in your home must have at least one emergency exit/egress window that meets state building code. Adding an egress window to your basement allows you to increase the amount of valuable living space in your home’s lower level. Beyond creating more space in your home, egress windows also create a safer environment for your family. Here are just a few of the reasons to consider choosing egress windows for your home:

  • Improved Safety. In the event of an emergency, egress windows serve as an emergency exit from your home. Installing egress windows in bedrooms and other living spaces (such as a finished basement) provides your family with a safe way to escape in the event of an emergency, and also gives first responders a better entry point.
  • A Brighter Space. If you want to add natural light to your living space, basements can pose a challenge. Egress windows can dramatically change the appearance of even the darkest basement spaces, adding more natural sunlight and improving ventilation.
  • Increased Value. Adding functional living space to your home is an excellent way to increase its value. Bringing basement bedrooms and other living spaces up to code means they can be included in the overall square footage of your home. An increase in square footage can lead to an increase in your home’s value.
  • Added Style. New egress windows will enhance the beauty of your home and add natural light, and there are many ways to customize the look of your new windows. Your window wells can be lined with materials including corrugated metal, wood, stone, and brick, giving you the ability to create a look that matches your personal style.
