    Why Install a Basement Egress Window?

    Both the Ohio Residential Code, Section 4101:1029, and the International Residential Code, Section R310, require an egress window in any below level bedroom. An egress window is a window with a net clear opening of no less than 5.7 sq.ft, the bottom of which must be no higher than 44 inches from the inside finished floor. You must be able to open the egress window from the inside without the use of any locking device or "special knowledge."

    Since basement egress windows are below grade, or below ground level, an egress area wall (window well) is also required. The window well must have an area of no less than 9 sq.ft., and must project at least 36 inches from the foundation wall. Window Wells deeper than 40 inches must be equipped with some form of ladder or steps no greater than 12 inches apart, the first of which must be within 18 inches from the floor of the window well. This is to ensure a person will be able to climb out of the egress window well while escaping a fire.

    Apart from the building code requirements that an egress window be installed in any basement bedroom, there is also a legal benefit to having an egress window in other basement living spaces, such as a basement den, rec room, or laundry room. Considered together with the glazing requirements of "habitable space," as defined by building codes, areas with an adequate means of egress, if all the other amenities of a finished space are there, can be counted as square footage of habitable space your home provides, and can be added to the value of your real estate.

    But most of all, basement egress windows provide safety for you and your loved ones and serve as a wonderful source of natural light in your basement. Basement egress windows can transform the look and feel of your home tremendously!
