Egress windows have a lot of benefits, including providing beauty and natural light to lower levels of your home while also providing a means of escaping your basement in the case of a fire. Many homes can benefit from adding egress windows to their basement living spaces and many must add them to meet code.

Unfortunately, egress windows and the window wells surrounding them can become weak points in the exterior of your basement. These weak points can create a means through which water can invade your home and damage your interior. Lucky for you.
