Double egress

Double egress

The Challenge:

This home had a finished basement, 0ne room with drywall and the other with a common pine paneling. The exterior had a stamped concrete patio and it was reverse graded allowing moisture into the dark unsafe basement.

The Idea:

To remove concrete pad to allow for excavation, regrade the area and add two windows that meet egress qualifications within the existing width of the existing windows

The Solution:

We broke out and disposed of the slab, we dug when weather allowed. We added one slider and one casement window then trimmed out the interior. This project used the  metal window wells, no ladder was needed.

The Details:

New trim and drywall, corrugated white powder coated window wells, western white vinyl windows.

Investment Range: $7,200

Time Frame: 2 weeks
