What is an Egress Window?

An egress window is a type of window that is large enough to allow a person to climb out of it in case of an emergency. Egress windows are required by building codes in many areas for finished basements and bedrooms to provide a safe exit in the event of a fire or other emergency.

Advantages of Egress Windows vs Other Windows

Egress windows offer several benefits to homeowners, including increased safety, improved natural light, better ventilation, energy efficiency, and increased home value. They provide a safe and easy exit in case of an emergency, allow fresh air to circulate through the home, and can significantly improve the amount of natural light that enters a basement or lower-level living space. Additionally, modern egress windows are designed to be energy-efficient, meaning they can help reduce heating and cooling costs while also increasing the value of the home.
