Egress Window Wells

Installation and Benefits

Without windows, a basement has far less utility as a living space, especially where egress – access to the outside in case of emergency – is required.  When you plan to install a window in the basement, you will also be adding a window well. Window well refers to a product that is attached to the side of your house that acts as a wall to hold back the earth.  There are multiple benefits to window well installation:

BENEFITS OF ADDING A BASEMENT WINDOW

Making Your Basement a Livable Space

The main benefit of a window well installation is making your basement and your home a safer space by allowing another way of exit – in case of fire or any other hazardous situation. Local code may require you to have egress window wells installed in your finished basement for secondary emergency escape.  Even if the basement is unfinished, it is still an excellent idea to add an egress window well.

If you decide to finish your basement, an egress window well will add an abundance of natural light and fresh air, converting your space into a bright and welcoming area, making it feel more like an above-ground room.

We also offer covers to protect children or pets from falling into an open well. The window well covers need to be sturdy enough to prevent people or pets from falling in but light enough to be lifted to allow an escape from the basement.
