Does your family use the basement as a living area? Or does someone even use part of the basement as a bedroom? You may want to consider installing an emergency exit in case of fire or disaster. Escape windows, window wells, and bulkhead stairwells can provide a second way out of the basement if the stairs are blocked for any reason.

Imagine the peace of mind you'll have when you know that loved ones can easily get out if the worst should happen.

But, that's not the only reason to consider updating your home with an egress window or stairwell. There are many benefits to adding these features to a basement. As BHA Certified egress specialists in Delaware Valley, Worthington Waterproofing is more than capable of installing egress points in your home. We can also go over the benefits of hiring experts to plan and install your egress windows and window well during a thorough consultation.

Benefits of Basement Egress Points

Wondering how the different types of egress windows and stairwells work?  These emergency exits are made larger than the average window and provide an easy way out of the home. Some window wells also feature short ladders to make climbing up and out a simple task. Stairwells are even easier. A wide, shallow stairwell is installed leading to a secure door into and out of the basement. Homeowners can even use this as a second entrance into the basement.

What are some of the other benefits of installing egress points in your home?

  • Your basement becomes a more accessible and safer living space.
  • Large egress windows allow more sunlight to enter the basement.
  • Egress window wells can also serve as spots for small plants.
  • Egress windows can also provide improved air circulation because they are larger.
