Scroll Down To Learn More About Kansas City Egress Windows
Egress windows exist in basements for two reasons. One, for safety. They provide a fire escape for any room that we install egress windows in. The second reason is they’re there to add a lot of natural light.
To install egress windows, the foundation wall has to be cut. This a service we provide at KC Pier.
From our experience installing egress windows, we can provide more details that are helpful to anyone considering egress window installation in Kansas City. The foundation has to be supported to be able to allow the egress window. The window will slide from left to right, or right to left for the natural light.
From the exterior of the house, drainage is important, and there are also other features that come with egress windows.
From the outside, it’s easy be able to slide to the left or the right, remove the screen and have your safety escape in case of a fire. If you look at the external features of the egress window, you can see at least with KC Pier, we add foundation drainage, we use half inch AB3 for the drain and water to go. We also added a drain and we can tie that in to the foundation drain, that should be at the footer of your foundation. Each of our egress windows comes with a six or an eight foot window well and an escape ladder also.
They have optional window covers, and together this makes a really nice package to add not only the natural light, but also add the safety features for anybody finishing a basement. And then of course, you get the return and value because you’ve added a bedroom, an additional bedroom to your home.
