How Dahl-House Construction’s Life-Saving Egress Windows Can Increase Your Home's Value And Safety

Their feature product, egress windows, gives a homeowner added safety for emergency escape. Remodeling a basement for added living space can stretch a home's habitable square footage, alleviate crowding, and boost the resale value. Basement bedrooms, however, require an egress window for a means of escape, and give firefighters direct basement access in the event of a fire. “Without an egress window, most current building regulations won't allow a basement bedroom. The escape windows are simple to install, and the emergency latch is quick and easy to open,” says owner Doug Dahl. Many existing basements were previously built without egress windows, creating a conundrum that can keep you cramped for space, unable to utilize the space you have in a basement. As a bonus, the added light, let in by these deep windows, can eliminate the dark, dank atmosphere, common to earlier basement finishes, stimulating a notable sensory difference. In basements especially, light is a critical design element.
Dahl-House Construction also provides numerous other safety services, including radon detection/mitigation, stair lifts, home elevators, disability ramps, and much more. With millions of baby boomers facing future health challenges, Dahl-House wants them to be safe and happy in their homes as they transition from baby boomer, to senior citizen, to elderly.
