Egress Window Installation in Albany, Troy Upsate NY

The International Residential Code (IRC) requires all basements with living space and every sleeping room to have at least one openable emergency escape and rescue opening.

Before you finish your basement, it is a good idea to have our Project Manager visit and review your foundation to plan for this required emergency escape. They will determine where the best location(s) would be to install an egress window(s).

Call us at 518-255-8583 or contact us online if you reside in Albany, Troy, Groveland, or surrounding areas. We also provide basement waterproofing and moisture control services.

Most of the excavations to install an egress window is done by hand to avoid damage to the landscape of your property. Once the wall opening is cut it is important to properly prepare the space for the installation of the window itself. It is important that the window have proper drainage to protect the basement from flooding.

Attention to downspouts and other drainage is another important consideration when installing an egress window. It is important that all water be directed to a location away from the foundation and the window well opening so that surface water does not flow into the window well and into the basement.

Just dial 518-255-8583 and get your egress windows installed.
