What Is An Egress Window?
An egress window is one that local building codes have defined as large enough for safe entry or exit in case of an emergency. Hence, why egress windows are often referred to as basement escape windows. Most of the escape windows that are popular in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and western Wisconsin are available as egress window options—double-hung, casement, awning, and sliding windows, for instance. Because egress basement windows provide an emergency means of leaving a dwelling, safety codes require them in bedrooms or any habitable space in the basement. As a trusted home improvement contractor since 1979, Lindus construction installs every type of egress window with energy-efficient features that can trim your energy bills and custom design options, like frame color, grille patterns, and decorative hardware that will make your home shine.
Egress Windows Practically Designed for Minnesota and Wisconsin Weather
Like any type of window, egress windows experience wear and tear over time, especially during harsh seasons. As the deterioration progresses, windows often allow drafts into the home or may even show signs of condensation between the panes, and when those conditions surface, replacement windows with a more energy-efficient design may be warranted. At Lindus Construction, we offer egress window options that can reduce energy costs and keep your home comfortable through the seasons. These windows:
- Are made of cost-efficient vinyl or hardwearing fiberglass
- Feature energy-efficient components like low-E glass, multiple layers of metallic coating, and specially insulated glass engineered to provide maximum thermal efficiency and comfort
