Upgrade your space with Egress Window Installation
Older homes don’t typically have basements that can be used for living or sleeping, particularly for houses built before World War II. At that time, homeowners used cellars for storage, laundry, and utility space. You might have made your home before the current egress window regulations, or it might have windows with a smaller opening, depending on how old it is.
There’s a good chance the basement windows on your older house are small. These above-ground windows, also known as hopper windows, open inward to let in the fresh air. However, because of how small they are, no adult can fit through them, making it impossible for you to have a living room or bedroom in your basement. And this is why you need egress windows in your basement. They also provide you with mold removal benefits since they allow more ventilation.
Benefits of Installing Egress Windows
The Egress Window Installation offer many advantages to homeowner’s keen on installing them. Some of these benefits are:
- They make the basement feel more open and bigger thanks to letting in the sunlight and air from outside. People who particularly feel claustrophobic in basements can now sigh relief because with these windows, you will have a boost of natural light.
- When buying and selling real estate, properties with higher functional value will be paid more; that’s the general rule. With egress windows, you can be sure that your property value will increase.
- Safety is of the essence, and egress windows provide just that. An exit in any unprecedented situation can be possible with a well-installed egress window in the house.
- These windows promote ventilation which allows fresh air to enter, enabling unmatched comfort. The gust of clean air also prevents allergy-triggering mold and mildew from growing, thereby keeping the area moisture and odor free. This means you don’t have to worry about getting odor control services.
Types of Egress Window Installation
Large basements benefit greatly from the additional light provided by sliding windows. The aperture is only half as large as the window, so these windows need to be both wider and higher. The sash’s horizontal sliding motion is to blame for this.
The sash of sliding windows is moved from left to right to open them. Extra-durable tandem nylon rollers are a feature of several Zavza models. These rollers provide considerably easier operation. This window must have a net opening of at least 16 square feet.
Specifications of Installation
Egress windows’ size and accessibility are its most crucial characteristics. The window must offer an open space of at least 5.7 square feet in size, at least 20 inches wide and 24 inches tall. The opening in the bottom of the window cannot be above 44 inches off the ground to be accessible.
You must adhere to some specifications if you want to get an egress window in a basement per your local building code. When the window is open, the egress window must open into a window well at least 36 inches wide and provides at least 9 square feet of space outside the foundation. The window well must have a ladder if it is more than 44 inches deep and should have a minimum distance of 6 inches between the bottom and the windowsill.
Remember that experts should only cut masonry walls. It does not affect the lally columns. Getting an egress window in a wall made of brick is far more difficult and expensive, especially if the wall is a basement wall. Therefore, if you have a masonry wall, contact professionals today.

5 Star Google & Home Advisor Reviews
I received a few quotes to get the walls in my home filled in with blown in insulation. Zavza Seal was affordable and they did an excellent job.
They were very concerned with cleaning up, which I appreciated. I felt the difference in my home immediately. No more freezing cold walls. I recommend them, hands down.
Our experience with Zavza Seal was wonderful and smooth. The crew is well organized. They listen to your plans. They showed out in time. They left everything clean. They did an amazing job! I highly recommend this company.
Efficient, courteous and responsible workers. The job was quoted as being completed in 2 days but more work was required and they returned on the 3rd day and completed the job without additional charges. They reinsulated my crawlspace (not an easy job). I recommend Zavza Seal without reservation.
Couldn’t be more satisfied with the job Zavza Seal did. Brendan and Jake were accommodating, fair and extremely knowledgeable. Their team worked incredibly hard that day under difficult conditions and did a great job. I manage a multi-unit HOA and we will definitely be using them again.
