In order to make the basement a safe bedroom, an egress window must be installed to provide easy escape in case of emergency.
Hole in the wall
The area surrounding the window has been dug out and the window frame has been installed in the foundation wall.
Rerouting the gas line
The gas line ran too close to the house to install the egress window, so the team had to reroute it to make room.
The window opens and shuts smoothly and is at a height for easy access for all family members.
Safe and sturdy
This lid withstand the weight of 4 feet of snow but will also prevent accidental falls and the window well from filling up with water and yard debris.
The lid is light enough to lift with minimal effort from the outside or inside.
Drainage has been installed so water doesn't flood the window well or the basement.
The window is installed and operational and outside access is closed and safe.
