An egress window is a window that provides a safe escape route from your basement in case of an emergency. They’re an essential and required feature for your home. Egress windows increase the value of your home and create a safer environment for everyone under your roof. Due to the required size of the windows, they bring in more natural lighting and provide more ventilation throughout. Here’s a list of reasons you should install egress windows to your home.

Did you know that 4,000 Americans die each year in fires, and over 20,000 are injured? Many of these accidents could be avoided with proper escape routes. An egress window in each bedroom, as well as in other areas of your basements, increases your chances of safe escape and emergency assistance.

Adding egress windows in your basement is essential to increasing the value of your home. Adding egress windows are crucial to bringing basements and the rooms in them up to code. When everything is up to code, it will be included in the overall square footage of the home.

Talk about updating a space! These homeowners wanted to make a dramatic update to their home. The scope of this project was focused on the railing throughout this grand living space. We started by replacing the spindles from the dated versions to a more modern flat bar spindle. For many having the dramatic change that came with the new spindles would be enough, but the homeowners wanted to go headfirst into a modern design. They chose to have us also paint out the woodwork to write to make the new spindles the focal point they deserved to be!
