Add Value And Beauty To Your Home With An Egress Window
Barker and Son Construction is your St. Louis Egress Window Contractor
An egress window adds value to your home, and creates a living area that is much more bright and comfortable. As opposed to the small basement windows of 40 years ago, an egress window adds an enormous amount of light to a usually dark basement. As a result you and your family will spend much more time in this warm, comfortable area of your home.
In addition to a higher quality living space, an egress window increases the value of your home by adding “usable square footage” according to the MLS, when installed in a basement bedroom area. Just by adding an egress window it increases the “value” of your home by adding square footage when it comes time to sell the home.

We Install Egress Windows That Meet All Building Codes And Compliance
Egress windows serve as an emergency escape route so firemen can get into the dwelling, and people in the basement can get out. Along with an egress installation comes a lot of code and compliance regulations that must be designed into the project such as;
- Square footage of the “opening” of the window. Not only must the window be a certain size, but the “clear opening” has to meet compliance as well.
- Window, well, ladder and top. IRC (International Residential Code) is very specific about the well size, ladder, width and height of the window, and window sill height from the floor.
- An egress window must be present in any room where someone is sleeping. Even though you may have a walkout basement, you still need an egress window in the room where someone is sleeping.
