There is one thing that increases the value of one’s home. It’s safe to assume that everyone wants the highest return on investment when they decide to sell their property. One of the very best ways to increase the value of your home is to add an egress window.
Adding an egress window means that there is now a viable fire escape from the lowest level of your home. Additionally, after an egress window is installed, the room in which it’s installed can legally become an additional bedroom. Having a four bedroom home instead of a two or three bedroom home automatically makes your property more valuable property.
Think about all the possibilities that you could have in your basement! If your basement is finished or unfinished, adding an egress window adds possibilities for your family and you lifestyle.
If you already have an egress window, there’s a way to make your egress window an even better fit for your home. Debris and water can pool in the base of your egress window, sometimes letting the water into your home. Additionally, the hot air you are using to keep your home warm could be escaping out the window. Getting a sun house to encapsulate your window well means that when hot air seeps through the window, it is trapped within the well space, allowing less heat to escape in the winter, decreasing your energy bill. Also, your well will be free from debris, and water that might be leaking in through your window.
