Finishing a basement is a fast and affordable way to add significant living space to your home. One thing to consider when completing this type of project is the need for egress window installation. Most basements are not designed as living space, and therefore the windows are usually too small to function as a means of escape should the need arise.
Egress windows are not just a good idea; they are required by law, and Home Pro of West Michigan ensures your windows meet all requirements.
Our egress window company has more than 30 years of industry experience that you can rely on for a job well done. Our customer-first philosophy and consistently excellent results have helped us to maintain an A+ rating with the BBB and to become a trusted choice for replacement windows and other home remodeling projects across West Michigan.
Requirements for Egress Window Replacement
Most homeowners don’t know the specific requirements for basement windows, but our egress window replacement professionals do—and we’ll make sure your windows are up to code.
Some of the requirements for basement windows include:
- Minimum Width of 20 inches
- Minimum Height of 24 inches
- Sill No Higher Than 44 Inches Off the Floor
- Minimum Clear Opening of 5.7 Square Feet
If your windows are below ground level, you’ll need egress window wells to allow easy exit through the windows. Our egress window installers can take care of the wells and the windows. Home Pro of West Michigan uses premium materials and provides expert workmanship for durable results.
