What Is an Egress Window?

Get the facts from an egress window contractor in Bloomington, MN

An egress window is a window large enough to act as an emergency exit. The state's building code places very specific requirements on which rooms need these exits and what their dimensions are. MidWest Egress installs emergency exits in homes throughout the Bloomington, MN area. Ask an egress window contractor whether your home is up-to-code when you call 612-889-2763.

Keep your basement comfortable

We can also help you fix your basement's humidity problem. Unlike dehumidifiers, our basement waterproofing solution gets to the root of the issue. Many basements collect water under their foundation. An interior drain tile system will divert this moisture, keeping the area dry.

We offer basement waterproofing services in Bloomington, Minnesota and the surrounding area.
