Add Space, Add Value

Benefits of Installing an Egress System

Before and After Egress Installation

Adding Below Grade Living Space

  • Flexible Spaces

    Many people are still working from home regularly, if not every day. Or others have a growing family, requiring a need for an additional legal bedroom space.

    As a result, homeowners may be creating larger flexible spaces which are becoming more common.

    A flex room is an area in a house that can be customized and used for a few distinct functions. This may include anything from building a combination home office and guest room, gathering space, or entertainment center and library.

  • Added Light and Ventilation

    Builders and Realtors know it is all about the windows!

    Natural light and a fresh air source plays a key role in the aesthetics of a room as well as our health and wellness.

    Added Safety

    All bedrooms in a home must have a window for egress. In the event of a fire or other home emergency, an egress window system provides a safe means of escape from a basement, as well as an entry point for a firefighter or other first responder.

  • Increased Home Value

    Converting a basement into living space is less expensive than building a home addition. By adding a basement bedroom, you can expect the increased home value in the range of 50%-70% of the assessment of a traditional above ground bedroom.

    Adding a basement bedroom won’t increase your property taxes as much as remodeling to add an above-ground bedroom.

SPC Advantages

  • Strength

    Strength When soil gets wet, it can expand which is so powerful it cracks foundation walls and pushes them in. That same force can heave lesser quality window wells, cracking plastic wells and tearing them away from the foundation.

    Avoid installation failures by using the highest quality steel metal window egress well. SPC’s superior window well, installed to manufactures specifications, can endure the constant pressure from expanding soils.

  • One-Piece Construction

    One-PieceSPC’s galvanized steel window wells are onepiece construction. This eliminates the need for on-site assembly.

    Some manufacturers window wells are designed to combine or stack to make a deeper well. These installations tend to leak between the seams and can allow water to seep into the well.
