Egress Windows

Modern building codes require that new residential homes with basement foundations include egress windows. These are windows installed in the basement that occupants in the home can open and use as emergency exits. If there is a fire in your home, your basement windows may provide the only means of escape.

The Benefits of Installing Egress Windows

Adding windows to your basement gives your family an additional means of escape in an emergency. However, that’s not the only reason to ask Safe Basements to install these windows for you.

Here are a few more ways egress basement windows will benefit you:

  • Add more light to your basement
  • Replace old, leaky windows
  • Reduce the need for window maintenance
  • Increase the resale value of your home

Aspekt 1800 not only contributes to sustainability through its superior energy efficiency; the lifecycle of uPVC is more sustainable than wood and alternative materials. uPVC has an 80% lower carbon footprint over its lifespan than aluminum. uPVC is naturally resistant to moisture and atmospheric pollutants such as acids and alkalis. It does not dent, warp, corrode or peel. The proprietary uPVC formulation outperforms standard vinyl during weather testing in extreme climates to retain its color and sheen for years.

Additionally, the strength and durability of egress windows will help you reduce the risks of water leaks and damage in the future. These windows also provide extra emergency exits for improved safety.

What Does the Installation Process Involve?

When Safe Basements installs your egress windows, we’ll excavate the area in which the windows will be installed. After cutting the opening, we’ll frame and install the window.

Finally, we’ll seal and add Exterior trim around the window frame. We’ll install a ladder to make egress easier. If you choose, we can also add a cover to the exterior well.

Analysis of water in basement in Eden Prairie, MN

We had water in our basement and Derek came out to look at it. After reviewing he determined the water was coming from our water softner and used the bypass mode to prevent additional water from getting into our basement. He advised that I needed a plumber. He was honest and forthright and helped me even though it did not bring any service to SafeBasements. He would not accept any type of payment. I will definitely use this truthful company if I need their services for anything in the future.
