When you are replacing your home’s windows, you will want to make sure that the replacement windows have a sturdy frame with reinforce corners.  You also want to make sure that installer is using flashing instead of caulking to help keep water out.

Look for quality hardware on the new windows and also consider easy to operate sashes.  Window construction these days allow you the ability to clean and maintain your windows inside and out by using tilting window sashes.

Remember these simple amenities while upgrading your windows.  A lot of people don’t really think about tilting window sashes or between-the-glass blinds when they are shopping for a new window.

Do I need an Egress Window in my basement?

If you are planning on a basement renovation, you would expect the local building codes to require an egress window be added to your basement.  When adding a living space to the basement of your home, the need for an egress window is because of the added safety it brings by giving you an additional exit in the case of an emergence.  With the possibility of your basement stairs being blocked by fire or debris, it is a good idea to have one.

Most older homes do not have an egress window, so the idea of cutting a large opening in your basement wall can sound like a difficult and expensive job, leaving you without the added living space, and even added light brought on by a newly remodeled basement and larger window.

Fortunately, it isn’t an expensive investment.  While some may feel that they can try it themselves to save a few bucks, it may be a better idea to have a professional basement renovation specialist do it for you to be sure that all of the code requirements are addressed and that the installation is proper.

There are many options available for you to chose from so the added egress window will not only add safety, but also add additional light and enhance the look of your new living space.

 

Whether your project is large or small, Commercial or Residential, Brewer Contracting will give it the care and attention it needs.
