What is the purpose of an egress window?

An egress window is often referred to as a “Basement Escape Window.” These windows are built so that a full-sized adult may exit the window in case of an emergency.  They are often built below ground level in which a well is dug and reinforced. This provides the space necessary for a person to leave the home through this exit. For the safety of you and your family, it may be time to consider adding this safety feature to your basement.

What are the benefits of an egress window?

Aside from the aspect of safety, egress windows also provide additional benefits:

  • Unlike traditional basement windows, they allow ample sunlight into basement rooms.
  • Adding an egress window to your home adds value.
  • They allow an easy exit for your family, as well as easy access for emergency personnel in case of emergency.
  • Due to their larger size and access to the outside, they promote ventilation, allowing for air circulation.

If you are looking to increase your family’s safety, while increasing the value of your home, egress windows may the solution you are looking for.
