What is an egress window? You might have heard them called escape windows. In simple terms, it’s a window that is designed to give occupants a safe escape route in the event of an emergency. An added benefit is the improved access that they offer to first responders in an emergency situation.
Most building codes explicitly require a means of egress like the one you’ll get from an escape window. Since local codes vary on the requirements, the width, height, sill height, and net clear opening that will bring your home up to code can be confusing. When you work with us you won’t have to worry!
