Egress Windows add natural light and air to a basement, but more importantly, they add safety. In the event of a fire, this life-saving upgrade to your home will enable you or loved ones to escape should the fire trap them in the basement. In addition, an Egress Window System gives fighter-fighters direct access to your basement to hasten the rescue process.
Installing a Basement Egress Window System involves cutting an opening through your basement foundation wall. For this reason alone, it is important not to hire just any contractor. Keating Group, Inc. is an expert in foundation repairs and improvements, so this ensures our customers get solutions to their basement upgrade and not new foundation problems.
The process to install an egress window system is to first determine its location and size. We then excavate the soil from the outside to the needed width and depth. From there, we cut a precise opening through the concrete basement wall and install the components of the system to code.
