OCT2020: New Windows
Check out our October 2020 Project Spotlight
About this Project
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. For this recent project, the homeowner was ready to make this space into a legal bedroom. While providing safety, daylight and ventilation, installing an egress window is one of the only home improvement projects where you will recoup your cost in resale value. If this is a project you’d like to pursue, be sure you or the contractor you hire are familiar with the local building codes!
