Egress Window Solutions

Child exiting egress window wellIf your basement windows are old, ugly, and drafty, they are probably costing you more money than you think. When basement windows and window wells are not of quality construction, they won’t protect your basement from the elements. Instead, they allow excess moisture, humidity, and cold drafts to enter your basement, along with ants, termites and other pests.

Upgrading your basic basement window to an egress window can completely transform your basement. Enlarge the window opening, allow for more natural light and, satisfy newer building code requirements for an emergency escape route from your basement.

There are many types of egress windows and window wells to choose from, but selecting one that combines the right balance of durability, safety and cost is crucial.

Our egress windows feature no-maintenance vinyl frames that are easy to use. Insulated glass ensures energy-efficient performance. Specially designed window wells offer the appearance of masonry with the durability of heavy-duty composite construction. A one-piece design eliminates the potential for leaks and features a built-in step in case of emergency.

When you replace your old, outdated basement windows with new, energy efficient ones, you add comfort, value, and energy efficiency to your home. When the time comes to make the upgrade, Thrasher Foundation Repair has the long-lasting, energy saving solution you need.

Our Approach to Egress Windows

When basement windows and window wells are not of quality construction, they won’t protect your basement from the elements. By replacing your old, outdated basement windows with new, energy efficient ones, you add comfort, value, and energy efficiency to your home. At Thrasher, we recommend these products.

Our egress window wells are constructed from a single mold that is large enough to let light in, but is much more energy efficient and durable than older steel and aluminum basement windows.

Our durable well cover also adds a layer of protection against the elements by firmly sealing off the window well itself from the outside, while allowing light to pass through freely.

Our energy efficient vinyl windows are insulated, double-pane glass that adds another layer of efficiency over drafty single-pane windows.

Thrasher offers a 10-year product warranty for our basement egress window installations, along with a 5-year workmanship guarantee to ensure your peace of mind. In addition, we manage all permits and code regulations while working on your basement egress window project and, as basement and foundation experts, we know how to cut into foundation walls and complete fast, accurate egress window installations that prevent water issues down the line.

When the time comes to make the upgrade, Thrasher Foundation Repair has the long-lasting, energy saving solutions you need.
