Thinking about installing an egress but not sure where to start?
Not to worry - you're in the right place!
First, determine the location for your new egress. Asking these questions may help:
What is my budget for this project?
Having a dollar range in mind can help our estimator provide a realistic proposal and keep the process moving along.
Can I use an existing opening or will a new opening need to be cut?
Installing an egress window where there is currently a small window is the most economical option. That said, an existing window opening can be enlarged or a new opening created to accommodate a new egress.
Are there any nearby mechanicals or utilities inside or outside that may need to be relocated?
Knowing where public and private utilities (electric, gas, etc.) are located before your project gets started helps save time and money. This allows you to coordinate the mechanicals/utilities to be relocated, if necessary, before our crew arrives onsite.
Do I have enough room between the side of my house to my property line?
Each city has it's own requirements when it comes to the distance they require for an egress to be installed. (Five feet is a common requirement.) If you think you may be tight on space, check with your city to verify their egress code.
What style of window and well am I wanting?
Knowing what window and well options you would like to see pricing on will help our estimator provide you with a relevant proposal the first time around. Please browse our galleries to view the different wells we offer.
Hoping to match your egress window to the existing window(s) in your home?
Gather the brand/style/color of your existing window(s) so we can include this in your proposal.
Second, request an estimate.
Utilize our online estimating form to provide photos and information to our estimator - you'll receive an emailed proposal within a few business days and a ten percent discount off the proposal price! If you prefer an onsite estimate, we're more than willing to meet with you onsite - please contact our office to schedule! (Note: Onsite estimates are available to customers within the Twin Cities metro area only.)
Third, begin the scheduling process.
