State Regulations

Per state law and/or regulation, any sleeping room in a licensed specialty resort, vacation home, camping cabin, or hotel (built after 1992) must have a door that opens to the exterior of the building OR have at least one exterior window of sufficient size to permit the occupants to escape a fire and also to allow a fully outfitted firefighter to enter.

Why Invest in Egress Window(s)?

  • South Dakota’s building code requires egress windows to be installed in basement bedrooms on all new homes, or in older homes with bedrooms.

  • Ensure there are ample ways for you and your loved one’s to escape and enter the basement in the event of a fire.

  • While egress windows can be expensive, the cost can be offset by more safety, enhanced environment and increased home value.

  • Savvy homeowners who add extra legal bedroom(s) to their home’s basement can recover up to 10 to 20 times the cost of installation when sold.
