3 reasons to install a egress window in your MN or ND home

Monday, December 14th, 2015 by Ryan Anderson


  1. Added Safety.
    Egress windows help prevent tragedies by providing proper escape routes. Having an egress window in every bedroom of your basement drastically increases your chance of survival during a fire or other emergency situations.
  2. Added Value.
    Egress windows provide a safety route but are also required in any habituated area of your basement to qualify as a bedroom. Bringing your home up to safety code and including the new windows in your overall square footage dramatically increases your home value for resale. A study done in Popular Mechanics magazine shows that with the addition of Egress windows you can recover 10 to 20 times your window installation cost when selling your home.
  3. Added Comfort.
    Egress windows noticeably brighten a normally dark and dingy basement. They provide an excellent source of natural light that cannot be provided from traditional basement windows. This opens your basement up to several new opportunities.
