Basement escape windows in Michigan

Basement escape windows in Michigan

When you are faced with an emergency in your home and have to get out fast, are you sure you can do so safely and quickly?  If you have never had a contractor come out and install emergency egress windows in your basement, you are not prepared.  Furthermore, if you live in the state of Michigan you are required in most cases by law to have these installed.  Emergency egress windows are important to have in your home because they provide an easy means for you and your loved ones to escape in the face of imminent danger.  For instance, if a fire or other natural disaster struck, you may only have a matter of minutes to exit your property.

“I don’t think I need egress windows…”

The old saying “better safe than sorry” proves itself to be true on a daily basis.  When we buy car insurance, we do so because it is the law, but we also do this because we know it is smart to protect ourselves and our family members in the case of an accident.  The same holds true for specialty exit windows.  If you are lucky, you will never need to use them at all.  Worst case scenario, though, is if you do need to escape in a hurry, you will be able to do so efficiently and carefully because you planned ahead and brought your house to code by installing these windows.  And unless you have a contractor’s license in the State of Michigan, you need to hire a company like Emergency Egress LLC.  Our name says it all – we specialize in installing exit windows that meet strict building codes.

Do you have a bedroom in your basement?

More and more, families with refinished basements are using them as additional bedrooms to maximize living space.   Perhaps a friend or relative has moved in, you have taken in a renter, or your college student needs his or her own room during the summer.  No matter what the case is, if you have converted your basement into a bedroom, you need to install at least one emergency egress window.  According to the Michigan Department of Energy, Labor & Economic Growth’s Bureau of Construction Codes, “Basements with habitable space and every sleeping room

must have at least one operable emergency escape window or exterior door opening for emergency escape and rescue.”

This is not a law to be taken lightly.  If a fire ever broke out in your home, the person living in the basement would be in tremendous peril, not to mention the rest of the household and pets.  Everyone would need a fast and accessible way to exit the building, namely, through emergency egress windows.
