Increase Light And Safety With Egress Windows in Springfield Missouri
Egress windows serve multiple functions in your basement. They provide more natural light and they can be used as an exit or entry to the basement in case of an emergency. But with any window that is below grade, an egress window can also allow water intrusion if they are not installed correctly.

If you have a bedroom in your basement, than an Egress Window should already be in place. Most local building codes require this.

An Egress Window can save someone's life in case of an emergency. It can be an escape route if a fire were to break out, or an easy entrance for a firemen.

Egress Windows also provide additional sunlight to a basement bedroom. But the negative of any window that is below grade is that it can potentially leak and allow water intrusion.

All windows should be periodically checked to protect from water leaks and lost energy. If water can leak in, your indoor air can leak out, causing higher heating or cooling bills.

There are many reasons that we want to make sure your windows have the proper seal, but leaking water is the main one. Below grade windows need to have the proper grading or protective wells around them to prevent water intrusion and any bedrooms in the basement need to have a properly installed Egress Window.
