May 6, 2007: David Wilcox is on the job showcasing two egress window installation projects they recently completed in NY.
Egress Windows are built as an alternative to regular cellar doors to facilitate safe evacuation to the outside in case of an emergency, such as a fire. They are mandated by most building codes when the basement is used as a bedroom. Some building codes go as far as requiring an egress window if your basement is finished and used as an additional living space, even if no one sleeps in the area on a regular basis.
