If you are in St. Cloud, Minnesota and completing an exterior home project, you need to consider having egress windows installed in your basement or other area of your house. These windows are designed to be large enough for an adult to comfortably crawl out in case of an emergency. In addition to their benefits during an emergency, egress windows also provide a variety of other benefits. These windows require licensed professionals to install them to ensure they are put in the correct way. Here, our certified contractors at Tony’s Lifetime Exteriors will discuss the benefits of egress windows and why you should have them at your home.

Egress Window Installation Benefits

Technically, an egress window is any openable window that is in a living or dwelling area, such as bedrooms. However, when you think of egress windows, you typically think of basement windows that are easy to open to provide an escape route if there is an emergency, such as a fire. Here are some of the additional benefits that egress windows present to any property:

More Natural Light

Like other windows, egress windows are fairly simplistic and do not have many panes or other additives. Because of this, light easily flows into any room that egress windows are installed in.

More Air Flow

Similar to the other windows and doors we offer at Tony’s Lifetime Exteriors, egress windows easily open to allow for greater ventilation within your home. If the weather is nice, and you wish to bring fresh air into your home or other property, these easily opened windows are the way to do this.

Variety of Styles And Types

Like our other products and material options, our egress windows are available in a variety of styles. Depending on your design and style vision, you can choose from a variety of different windows. These windows are available in a variety of different sizes, textures, colors, tones, and more. Additionally, egress windows can be other types of windows, such as casement windows, double-hung windows, sliding windows, and more.

Enhanced Safety

Through the years, a variety of safety regulations have been implemented that require bedrooms to have windows that can be opened. They were specifically required for basements, so if there was a house fire or other disaster, people trapped inside could escape. Egress windows are required in basements and other living spaces purely for safety. You should routinely maintain these windows to ensure they are fully functional in the case of an emergency.
