What’s an “egress window”? An easy-to-open window also serves as an emergency exit for below-ground living space of any kind.
Let’s be honest – during a fire, stairs could be blocked or damaged. To avoid such dangerous situations, the International Residential Code requires an egress window or the equivalent in all basements used partially or entirely as a living space.
Just as important, an egress window totally eliminates the "dungeon feeling" that many, if not most, basements have. Even finished basements can have stale air and primarily artificial lighting.
With egress windows, you can have fresh air in your basement, which improves your home’s overall ventilation. The natural light from an egress window brightens the space, making it much more pleasant.
Here at EgressWindows.com™ you’ll find all the information you’ll need to create a finished basement - from product reviews to information on where to start.
