Window Wells and Emergency Egress
In Case of Emergency
D-Bug Waterproofing installs conventional window wells and emergency basement fire escapes. This involves excavating and installing a specially made fire exit window that swings open for easy exit in case of an emergency.
An egress well keeps dirt away from the window, and in most models, the ladder is built right into the well. Overhead egress well covers are then installed to keep excess water out. Our team will help you figure out which type of emergency exit is right for your home.
Bilco basement doors allow for direct access into a home’s basement, along with an easy exit in case of emergency. These doors make storing larger items in your basement much easier, and they satisfy the IRC Building Code requirements for emergency egress.
A window well is a great way to let natural light into your basement while also serving as a point of emergency egress.
D-Bug’s skilled excavation team clears dirt away from the window and installs a barrier that keeps earth away.
The well includes a built-in stairway that allows occupants to climb up and out of the basement in case of an emergency. A must-have for any finished basement, window wells with emergency egress can be retrofitted into existing basement windows by our team in accordance with International Residential Code specifications.
