Don't build that addition!

Friday, July 10th, 2020 by Elizabeth Anderson


Basements can make great living spaces. They are typically much cooler than the rest of the house during the summer and can provide a large amount of privacy. So why don't more people use their basement as a living space? The first answer is moisture (see "What's Lurking Behind Your Paneling?"). The second answer is building codes.

Building codes require at least two paths of egress (escape routes) for a bedroom. Many basements only have one way in and out: the door into the house. So what do you do if you have a dry basement you want to turn into a bedroom? Call Frank's to have an egress window installed.

An egress window is a window in your basement wall that is air and water tight, but is large enough and opens wide enough to walk through. Installing an egress window takes only a few days and adds significant value to your home.

Our egress window installations include a RockWell window well liner with steps to make exits fast and safe, as well as a plastic cover to let light in and keep the elements out.

Call today to schedule your free estimate on your egress window installation.
