Egress windows add so much value to your home, lets for a second forget that now you can escape in an emergency situation. This of course is your number one reason to install an egress window. A fire fighter's job is hard enough without having only one way in and out of your basement.

A egress window or door brings fresh air in and now fresh air is recycling in and out of this larger window in your basement allowing you to be in a healthier enviorment overall.

We all know that natural sunlight makes us feel good, stay inside all day and walk out into the sun and you feel better.

But the best and most important part of an egress opening is adding marketable square footage to your home. The area an egress window is in changes all of the space in the room to livable square footage.

So that 3 bedroom house just became a 4 bedroom house. Where else can you add 20-50% more sq footage to your home for $5000- $8500. Call Maryland Egress for a free inspection and quote 410-437-0360

By definition, an egress window is any window that provides a safe escape route from your home in case of fire, as well as an access point for emergency personnel. That being said, they’re an important (and required) feature throughout your home. And if you’re adding an egress window in your basement, you’ll reap the added benefits of bringing natural light and ventilation into your basement area, and increasing your home’s overall square footage and value.

There isn’t much not to like when it comes to adding an egress window. They increase the value of your home, and create a safer environment for everyone that lives under your roof. And since size requirements mean larger windows overall, they bring in more natural lighting, and provide more ventilation throughout. Here’s a list of reasons that egress windows should top your to-do list this summer.

Safety — According to the U.S. Fire Administration, “4,000 Americans die each year in fires, and over 20,000 are injured,” many of which could be avoided with proper escape plans and routes. An egress window in each bedroom, as well as in other “habituated” areas (basements included), drastically increases your chances of safe escape in the event of a major house fire, and provides entry points into your home for emergency personnel.

Added Value — Adding egress windows in your basement is especially important when it comes to increasing the value of your home, since it’s the key to bringing basement bedrooms and living areas up to code and including them in calculations of overall square footage. According to Popular Mechanics magazine, “with an extra legal bedroom [in the basement], you could recover 10 to 20 times your window installation cost when you eventually sell your home.”

Added Comfort — An egress window in a basement dramatically brightens an otherwise dark, dingy room,” which isn’t surprising considering the fact that most building codes require egress windows to provide “a clear opening of at least 5.7 square feet.” A window of that size is big enough to provide a wealth of natural ventilation to the stuffiest basement, as well.
