What is an Egress Window?
An Egress window is an easy open window that is primarily made for the basement. They meet the current IRC code for building finished basements, meaning they offer a safe way to exit in the event of an accident or a fire. The primary purpose for this window is to serve as an emergency exit even in below ground spaces. However, at Tom’s Basement Waterproofing, we believe it does so much more.
First and foremost, it’s important to always provide a safe and habitable space for your family. Egress windows provide that escape route even in the most enclosed spaces like the basement. With 3,900 people dying each year in the US from fires, our hope is that the installation of an Egress window will reduce those statistics for you and everyone else. It offers the perfect pathway leading out of the house that will give you and rescuers another option.
Added Benefits of Egress Windows
Not only do we think they are a great idea for safety, egress windows also add an element of aesthetics. Natural sunlight into a basement used to be unheard of. With egress windows, let the light shine in! Tom’s Basement Waterproofing offers a variety of styles and designs to choose from. We can install with wood, stone and brick, matching whatever your style may be. Not only are they safe and stylish, but they also add value to your home.

To us, those sound like fantastic odds.
