Frequently Asked Questions

  • 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. 

  • Installing basement egress windows lets in natural light and provides an easy escape in case of emergency. 

  • The two most critical components of an egress system are the egress window and window well. Optional items include a separate drainage system for your window will and a cover to keep out excessive rain and debris. 

    • Before the job, our logistics team pulls permits and has utility lines marked. 
    • On the day of your egress window installation, we’ll begin with digging. We lay plywood to prevent track marks in your yard and haul away the extra dirt. 
    • We cut into your foundation using specialized saws that cut all the way through in one pass for a seamless cut that doesn’t compromise the foundation’s integrity. 
    • During the framing process and after the window is placed, we use a silicone-based caulk to seal the seams, preventing water issues and creating a clean, finished look. 
    • With every install, we include a sump basket inside the window well. If water issues occur down the line, this makes it easier to control and redirect to an interior drainage system and sump pump. 
    • When we’re done, we tamp down the surrounding dirt and do our best to leave a small footprint and make the area look as close to the way it looked when we arrived as possible. 

  • One-piece, heavy-duty composite construction, UV-stable and resistant to rot, rust and extreme temperatures. Rigid, one-piece design won’t warp, corrode or leak over time 

  • We can install most egress window and window wells in just one day.  

  • Not much at all. Making sure the drain at the bottom of your window well stays clear, is about all there is.
