Egress Window


Expert Egress Window Installation in Columbus, OH

Egress windows are the perfect upgrade to a home’s basement. Why? Because they allow your family to exit your property in case of an emergency.

Further, these unique windows are legally required in the state of Ohio. If your basement serves as a living space, then the Ohio Code requires an Egress window installed for your and your family’s safety. Therefore, if you have a bedroom in your finished basement or are considering remodeling your basement to include bedrooms, you must include these windows in each bedroom.

Additionally, a window needs an area wall or window well. These areas give the window more room while allowing you to quickly enter and exit your home.

Luckily, adding windows and window wells isn’t stressful when working with The Basement Doctor Columbus.

What Are The Benefits of Egress Windows?

  • Firstly, Egress windows add value to your home. A window with a well and cover will ensure your investment is protected and your home’s value increases.
  • Our windows allow natural light into your home. A cover can protect your window without denying the natural light entry. 
  • A window can increase ventilation into your basement. Increased air circulation will improve the comfort of your home. 
  • More importantly, egress windows offer an additional means of escape from a fire or other danger. An egress window cover or well does not prevent you from being able to leave through the window.
