Why Switch to an Egress Window? - Image 1

If you have a normal, small basement window, it may be time to consider an updated Egress window. Why should you consider an Egress window?

It is engineered for safety

If you have a standard basement window, they are designed small and hard to reach in case of an emergency. What if the unthinkable happens and you can't find a way out of the basement? Unfortunately, this is a scenario that isn't too far fetched. Emergencies can arise at any moment, so taking care of the health and safety of those inside should be a top priority. An Egress window will allow those inside an easy way in and out of the home and inside the window well there is a ladder built within the structure. 

Its beautiful appearance

The appearance isn't as important as its safety, but it is definitely a perk! Basements can be a very dark and dreary place, but it doesn't have to be. With an Egress window, this window is significantly bigger than your standard window and this means that it will allow in more natural light. Not only that but the overall all look of an Egress window had a curb appeal. This beautifully designed window well will have potential buyers intrigued and impressed.

It can increase the value of your home

Every single homeowner out there wants to find a way to increase the value of their home whether they plan to sell their home or not. An Egress window will increase the value of the home because of the value that it provides: easy exit, natural lighting, beautifully structured, etc.

You may be thinking, does it really increase the value if I have to invest in it? Absolutely! The amazing quality about this window is that you get far more out of it than what you initially put in. An Egress window doesn't require a lot of maintenance because of its design. Most homeowners opt for an Egress window cover to be placed over the top of the window well to keep the well clean and maintained year-round.
