Have you noticed large watermarks on your basement walls? or puddles forming? Your basement windows may be the problem. Perhaps your old windows are no longer getting the job done right – and it’s something you can’t ignore. The water leaks can cause extensive damage, including mold. In older homes, basements weren’t necessarily designed to be lived in, so it’s not unusual after a long period of time the windows just aren’t up to par for what you need right now.
If you’re next home improvement job includes waterproofing your basement, to make it a more livable area for your family to enjoy, then egress window replacements should also be included on this list! Here’s why:
Egress windows give the home that added safety by providing an alternate route of escape in the case of fire or emergencies. An installed egress window in every room in the basement ensures that every person in the home has access to a safe exit at all times.
Egress windows will replace the dingy old windows and allow natural light to pour into your basement, turning an otherwise dark room into a well-lit and functional area.
More Open Space
If you’re planning on finishing your basements, an egress window makes for a great addition to the open space a basement provides.
Prevents Basement Leaks
Your brand new egress windows will replace your old, leaky windows and stop unwanted water from entering your basement.
