Rapid Building Solutions is the local expert in basement egress windows. We can also manage any permits or code regulations for your basement egress windows project. Additionally, we are experts in cutting into foundation walls and completing fast, precise egress window installation.
Egress windows are more difficult than regular window installations because they require digging and cutting into the foundation of your home. Most egress windows and window wells can be installed in one day. Here are some things you can expect.
Our logistics team marks utility lines and pulls permits.
We will begin digging on the day of your egress windows installation. To prevent tracks from the excavator leaving track marks in your yard, we lay plywood and then hand-dig when there isn’t enough space. We’ll haul away any extra dirt once we’re done.
Our specialized saws are used to cut through your foundation in one pass. This ensures a smooth cut that does not compromise your foundation’s integrity.
We use sealant during framing to give the window a finished look. It also helps prevent water damage. We seal the seams with a silicone-based caulk after the window has been placed.
We include a sump box inside every window well. This makes it easy to manage and redirect water to the sump pump and interior drainage system if there are any issues.
We leave the area as it was when we arrived.
It is clear that a home construction project can cause chaos. We will make every effort to minimize disruption. Our crews will protect floors and walls, place plastic to isolate the area and use one of the best dustless saws and techniques in the industry. We are the only company that will work as hard to maintain your home.
Keep Your Basement Up To Code we are the Egress window experts you can count on! There is nothing worse than finding out your basement is not up to code. Let the experienced professionals at Rapid Building Solutions make sure that your basement windows are up to code.
Egress window code is a requirement intended to ensure a person can escape a building through a window in an emergency . Most codes also require the windows to be large enough for a firefighter with his pack on to enter through them. The term “egress” simply means a direct method of leaving a building. These are necessary for good escape routes in case of emergency.
We make sure that your basement windows are up to code. Most homeowners are not familiar with the International Residential Code (IRC) criteria for egress windows. Egress codes are very specific, because egress windows impact the structure of your home and safety of your family when in the basement. Egress window codes put requirements on window measurements for the window opening width, window height, and how the window functions. If your home isn’t a new, a recent build or remodel, then it most likely was not built to meet International Residential Code.
For basement egress windows, there are also codes that regulate the sizes of the window wells, which is the area surrounding the window on the home’s exterior. The wells must provide 9 square feet of floor space and be a minimum of 36 inches
