A properly installed basement window can change a dark and gloomy space into a much brighter, more enjoyable space. The basement window can also act as an emergency exit if necessary. Also, enlarging an existing, older window may also provide an insulation upgrade, reducing heat loss during winter months.
A professional can help in consulting on size, location and functionality to ensure that your window installation maximizes light in a safe way while protecting your structure and ensuring water entry is prevented. When done properly, a window installation will last a lifetime, free of water or structural issues.
Whether you are expanding an existing window or installing a new window, some of the considerations below will help your project planning.
