If a fire were to break out upstairs in your home while you were in the basement, what would be your exit strategy?
Egress window designs are made with fire codes in mind to ensure you or your family have a safe and easy exit in an emergency.
Window shape, sizes and functionality can be customized to your specifications, making them not only effective but beautiful, too. Egress windows are certainly worth it for safety.
You may be surprise to know that egress windows can add substantial value to your home. How much value does an egress window add? It depends on your home. They are, however, one of the only projects in which you will fully recoup your cost in resale value.
If you have all the other qualifications for a bedroom (closet and at least 10 ft by 10 ft area) then you can market that as a bedroom when it comes time to sell your house. That alone can boost sale price by $18,000 based upon Londons current price per square foot for a $650,000 home.
Awning windows are hinged on the top and open outward from the bottom, allowing for ventilation and protection from the rain. Often placed higher on walls for privacy
Casement windows are hinged on the side and crank open outward to the left or right allowing for full top to bottom ventilation.
Gliding windows operate in a horizontal fashion to allow for full top to bottom ventilation. Because the sash do not open outward they are an excellent choice for rooms that face walkways, porches or decks.
Double-Hung windows have two operating sash that move up and down allowing for ventilation on the top, bottom or both.
These multi-functional windows occupy less space than an open door but still offer ample convenience, ventilation and natural light.
