About Us

The Egress Experts

Our experienced team installs egress windows and basement entrances.  An egress window is a basement escape window, in the event of an emergency; you and your loved ones can easily climb out of our window, and out to safety. We ensure these windows are big enough to use as an emergency escape route, while also aesthetically bringing in sunlight to an otherwise dark, dull area within your home.

With a combined 20+ years of home construction and masonry experience, Ernie and Mike have installed all types of basement Egress. They take great pride and precision on each install – working with each customer to ensure they provide them with not only what they want, but what works best. Here at The Egress Experts we are installing more than just a window.

The number of egress windows required in a basement depends on the space’s specific layout and intended use. Per the International Residential Code (IRC), at least one egress window is mandatory for each separate sleeping area or bedroom in a basement. Additionally, if you plan to convert your basement into a living space, it’s important to consult with local building authorities to ensure compliance with all safety regulations. The Egress Experts can help you determine the appropriate number of egress windows required for your project and ensure they meet all code requirements.

An egress window can significantly increase the value of your home by providing several benefits. First, it enhances the safety and functionality of your basement by offering a safe exit route during emergencies. Second, egress windows allow natural light and ventilation into the basement, improving the living conditions and overall appeal of the space.

While it’s difficult to provide an exact dollar amount for the added value, installing an egress window can potentially increase your home’s resale value by making the basement more attractive to potential buyers and enabling you to market it as additional living space. The actual increase in value will depend on factors such as the quality of the installation, the local housing market, and the overall condition of your property.
