If you plan to use your basement as a playroom, guest room, or other living space, you need to make sure that it is safe for your friends and family. Since basements typically don’t have any windows, we recommend that you install egress window products right away.
Worthington Basement Health Systems has served the area as egress window installation contractors for over 60 years. Throughout our time in the industry, we have learned the importance of having these products in any finished basement.
Egress Window Requirements for Safer Homes
Are you wondering, “what is an egress window?” If so, our professionals can go in more detail at your in-home consultation, but simply put, it is an emergency exit. When you install an egress window and bulkhead stairwell, you can easily escape from your basement in an emergency.
Though it isn’t a glamorous part of your basement finishing project, it is a necessity for homeowners in Media. Building codes require egress windows in basements that are used as living space. Luckily, we are trained and certified in the local egress window code, so we know the exact specifications for:
- Net Clear Opening
- Sill Height
Benefits of Egress Windows in Media Homes
While safety is always the top concern, there are many other reasons for installing escape windows in your Media home. For example, there are plenty of design options for your egress window well. You can customize the look by adding wood, stone, or brick. You can even utilize the space as a planting bed for beautiful landscaping.
That’s not all!
Many homeowners continue to install egress windows in their home for:
- Natural Light & Ventilation
- Value & Curb Appeal
- Extra Livable Space
- And More!
