Basement windows

May 11, 2016

 

    A common question when we do basement renovation is about basement windows. Why is this such a big deal?  Well when you are renovation a basement and putting in a bedroom the windows for that room has to meet the city codes for Egress.  This means the window is large enough for a person to get through the window in case of an emergency.

 

     What if your windows are not large enough to meet this standard? Can they be change?  What is involved?   The quick answer is yes any window can be cut out and made larger.  The cement can be cut and a new window installed.  It is a messy process and there will be city inspections required to ensure that everything is done properly.  But it can be done.
