If you are constructing a new home or remodelling and existing one (especially if the remodeling includes adding a bedroom or bedrooms in the basement) either in Berwyn or elsewhere you’ll be required to install egress windows if they aren’t already present. If you are building a new home, you are required to put an egress window in each bedroom. If you are building a bedroom or bedrooms in your basement or just fixing up an unfinished basement then these windows will be required as well.
Simply put, an egress window is a window that is required in specific locations in a dwelling and is intended to provide an emergency means of exiting a dwelling. They are required in any room used for sleeping purposes (bedrooms) on any floor and in basements with habitable space. They also need to conform to specific size and other requirements in order to qualify.
If you should require such a service then rest assured that we have many years of experience providing such services in both Berwyn and elsewhere in Cook County as well as the replacement and installation of a wide range of other window types. Whatever issues you are having with a window or windows, our free no-obligation estimate and consultation can help you to determine the best course of action.
