The Egress Window Installation Experts in Nassau and Suffolk County
Did you know that having egress windows installed instantly increases the value of your home? Not to mention they can help transform your basement into usable living space that adds square footage to the footprint of your house. In addition to the value added in terms of price and square footage, egress windows provide you and your family with another key benefit – the ability to get outside quickly in case of an emergency.
In as little as one day, you can take advantage of all the benefits basement windows have tooffer, including, but not limited to, bringing in natural light and adding an emergency exit.
Egress Windows and Basement Entrances for Safe Emergency Exits
Why would you want to have an egress window? The first reason is because you may need it to keep your home up to code. If you have no exits out of your basement other than the main stairway, you will want to have at least one egress window or basement entrance installed. Imagine if you had a fire or a flood. You’d want to be able to get out of your basement in more than one way.
Of course, there are other reasons to have entrances, too. Adding windows to an otherwise dark and dingy space can really brighten it up by allowing natural light to filter in.
Get Rid of Moisture With Dry Wells and Drainage Systems
Along with having egress windows installed, window wells provide proper drainage so you don’t have to worry about water coming in. After all, now that you have an opening below the ground’s surface, there could be a risk of water and dampness damaging the area without the right drainage.
A dry, clean basement with ample exits and ample sunlight? Now that’s what a basement should look like if you ask us!
Bring In the Sunlight With Your New Egress Basement Window
One of the things that can make basements feel cold and disconnected from the rest of your home is the lack of sunlight. Fortunately, you can have an egress window installed and improve the lighting in your basement. With a few egress windows, you’ll have natural light that comes into your downstairs space, making you feel much more at home.
Many egress windows are designed with screens and can easily be opened, too, so you can allow fresh air to come into your basement directly. Mold, mildew, and dampness downstairs?
Not with the sun coming inside and the fresh air blowing. It’s a great addition for any basement space.
The Right Egress Window Well to Let You Get Outside
Why get an egress window well? Your egress window opens to the outside, but it may be underground. With an egress window well, you’re able to actually exit the window and have somewhere to go. You may be able to get out of the well by simply pulling yourself out, or you might opt for a well that has stairs or a ladder to help you get to ground level.
An egress window well prevents the collapse of dirt and debris around your sub-level windows, making it perfect for protecting your investment and making sure your home is up to code.
