Keeping your home safe is a number one priority for your family. We are frequently reminded about keeping our smoke detectors working and you may have put a security alarm on your home but have you thought about how to keep your basement safe? Egress windows can turn your lower level into a safe and livable space for your family.
Michigan’s building code is very specific on the requirements of egress windows which are based on helping firefighters get into your house and your family get out. Because the size, style and placement of these installations are so specific, it is a job you don’t want to tackle yourself. Make sure you call a professional licensed contractor when you are adding egress windows to your home.
Egress windows can do more than simply add safety to your home, they can also add value. By adding the appropriate fire exits, you can count you may be able lower level as living space and possibly a bedroom. These windows can also provide increased light and ventilation to your basement making it more comfortable for you and your family. We work hard to incorporate your window wells into your landscaping with beautiful finishes such as wood or stone.
Egress windows are a project for a professional but the value and safety it adds to your home will cover the cost.
