BDry Systems of Louisville, a Kentucky waterproofing service provider, has announced the positive impact that the thriving spring real estate market is having on the current demand for egress window investments. 

Louisville, KY – April 25, 2017 – The local area basement waterproofing experts at BDry Systems of Louisville proudly announce that the demand for egress windows has increased dramatically as the spring real estate rush reaches full swing. 

The main reason for the increase during the busiest part of the year for real estate, is the potential high return on investment, coupled with the quick installation. Homeowners have reported up to a 20% ROI on the purchase of the basement windows, when added to spaces that otherwise qualify as legal bedrooms, effectively expanding the homes livable square footage. 

If the end goal is to increase the home’s square footage, finished basements must meet the requirements, particularly that of egress building codes. According to the International Residential Code, Section R310, basement egress windows need to be no more than 44″ from the floor, and at least 24″ high by 20″ wide. It is best to consult with a building expert to ensure complete compliance with building codes.

Besides the benefit of additional living space, egress basement window replacement provides homeowners with many other benefits, including:  

  • Drastically increased safety
  • Brightens the space
  • Provides greater ventilation
  • Multiple design options

Proper installation is vital for the integrity of the windows and for water proofing the basement. However, homeowners are encouraged to schedule a basement waterproofing consultation soon because the increase in demand is causing slower turn times for expert installation.
