SAFETY: A basement egress window in each bedroom or “habituated” areas drastically increases your chances of a safe escape in the event of a major house fire, and provides entry points into your home for emergency personnel.
VALUE: According to Popular Mechanics magazine, “with an extra legal bedroom [in the basement], you could recover 10 to 20 times your window installation cost when you eventually sell your home.”
COMFORT: A window of that size is big enough to provide a wealth of natural ventilation to the stuffiest basement, as well.
DESIGN: You don’t have to line basement egress window wells with ugly corrugated tin. Choose from a variety of options that fit your budget, style, and home.
