Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Basement Egress Window?

Egress is a building code term that relates to the ability to exit a room during a hazardous situation such as a fire. Most applications apply to a basement area that will be finished for living space, typically a bedroom. Older homes and basements with low windows are difficult to finish due to the window size. An egress window solves this problem by complying with fire codes. An opening is cut into the basement wall to insert a window. Size requirements will vary from state to municipality.

What is the lead time to get on Schedule?

Lead times are on average less than 2 weeks.

How long is the Egress Window / Door Install?

2 days. Day 1 dig, cut and install. Day 2 clean up and wait for an inspector to final. We also broke it down further in our process above.

Will my Home Value Increase with Egress?

These spaces bring increased value, lifestyle enhancement, and expanded living to today’s homes. (with an extra-legal bedroom, you could recover 10 to 20 times your window installation costs when you eventually sell your home*. (*According to the Bob Vila and Popular Mechanic website).

Is a Permit required for a Egress Window?

In all areas of Colorado it is required. Some engineered some not. But all require. At Native Sons Egress Windows, we will handle the permitting process.

Will Native Sons handle all Permitting?

We are licensed in 30 jurisdictions along with the front range. (Yes they make us get licensed in every city/county)

Do I even need a Egress Basement Window?

Adding egress can greatly improve safety in enclosed spaces. Even if a basement is not going to have a bedroom, it may be wise to have an escape route. A below- or at-grade window adds considerable value to the equity of a home. Most home buyers are looking for homes that are built well and maintain adequate permits for any remodels on the home. A proper egress in the basement eliminates the worries of homeowners and buyers. The insulation of the windows also reduces energy bills of heating newly conditioned spaces.

What does a Egress Window Cost?

On average $3000 – $7000 for for one egress window. $15,500 – $30,000 for doors.

Referral for Native Sons Native Sons were impressive in there knowledge, craftsmanship and honesty. They did 2 windows for me that were permitted (the building Inspector even stated that they were some of the best windows he has seen). We did the wood well and the inswing window option, and I couldn't be happier!!
