Quality 1st Basement Systems Case Studies: Safety Focused Egress Window Installed in Lyons, NJ
A homeowner in Lyons, NJ had just finished remodeling his basement. He had the perfect flooring, the dream entertainment system, a beautiful wall color, and all the best furniture. However, something was missing. This homeowner was very safety focused. He liked to always know that he and his family were the most secure they could be, in every room in the house. Building codes require finished basements with bedrooms to have an egress window, but it is a wise choice for any basement used as a living area to have an emergency exit. Since this homeowner and his family planned to spend many hours in the basement, he called Quality 1st Basement Systems for an egress window.
Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a RockWell egress window in the basement. The RockWell egress window has a faux stone finish that the homeowner loved because it matched the look of his newly finished basement. Its window well is made with a durable one-piece construction that keeps out cold drafts, water leaks, debris, rain, and snow. RockWell egress windows will never rot, rust, corrode, and they are made out of UV-protected materials.
Installation was easy and the crew was careful to keep this basement clean and tidy while working. After the window well was installed, Quality 1st Basement Systems attached an egress window cover. The window cover will still allow for lots of natural sunlight to filter into the basement, but will also keep out dirt and rain from the window well. Always focused on safety, the window cover can support up to 500 pounds, so in case a family member walks over it they will not fall through. This finished basement looks great with its new egress window and the homeowner is relieved to have a safety focused basement. He loves that the window provides sunlight, is attractive, and can be used as an escape in case of a fire or emergency. Now he is ready to continue decorating his remodeled basement and make it his family's favorite room.
