As a homeowner, it can be hard to account for so much all of the time. Trouble may arise at any moment and put our families at risk. But luckily, there are preventative measures we can take. Installing safety egress windows into your basement is one such preventative action. Some of the reasons to install safety egress windows that we’re discussing later on are:
- Offer safe entry and escape routes in case of emergencies
- Let in natural sunlight
- Required by Ohio state law in the first place
All of these aforementioned reasons are of critical importance and we would like to show exactly how they may work out favorably.
IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
There can be a lot of reasons why people need to get out of the house quickly. Whatever the emergency the more exists the better. Egress windows have no outside obstructions and provide a space tailored for people in need of escape. If a fire were to break out inside the home the window can act as an alternative form of escape. It also provides an entryway for firefighters. Firefighters will need to quickly access the fire but may be obstructed by the front door. The egress windows act as an alternate entry for firefighters to enter the home safely and efficiently.
LET THE NATURAL LIGHT IN
Your basement can be a place in the home that we all enjoy. Some turn them into game rooms or lounge areas. Rather it is a laundry room or recreational space, the basement is always better off with natural light. Light bulbs and other forms of artificial light may not be the best solution for homeowners and that’s why it’s all the more important to let natural sunlight into the home with these windows. This is solved with an egress window because they are designed to let plenty of natural sunlight into the home.
By now, it’s clear that these windows are pretty amazing additions to the home; however, we understand that installation could pose an issue for some folks and that’s where we come in to help. We at Toledo Basement Repair understand the laws and regulations that come with the installation of basement egresses such as proper dimensions, placement of interior steps, and ease of access. It’s important that a contractor follows not just these laws but also the safety precautions concerning the COVID-19 virus when installing, something that we’re taking extremely seriously here.
