Do you have questions about egress windows? We have answers:
- Does my home need an egress window? Egress windows are required in every bedroom and basement living space. This means no one can sleep in a basement room without an egress window.
- What counts as an egress window? According to the Minnesota State Building Code, an egress window must have an openable area of 5.7 square feet. The dimensions must be at least 20 inches wide and 24 inches high.
- How can I install a window in an underground room? MidWest Egress builds window wells. These are well-like areas that hold earth away from the window, allowing you to exit. They include a staircase so you can reach your yard quickly and safely.
We can install most windows in a single day. To schedule an egress window replacement, call our Bloomington, Minnesota location today.
