After living in her house for six years, a homeowner in Westerville, OH, was growing tired of a small glass block window in her finished basement. While glass block windows do allow natural light into the basement, this particular window was not quite what the homeowner hoped it would be.
She was interested in having an egress window system installed, so she contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning about this service through our website.
Not only are egress windows attractive and safe additions, they are home necessities. Residential building code requires habitable spaces, such as finished basements, to have a means of egress.
We carefully excavated the area outside the existing window to remove it and create a larger space for the new window. The new window with a larger frame and double-pane glass, is durable and energy-efficient. Then the lightly colored window well and translucent well cover were installed. These pieces allow more natural light to enter the basement while keeping leaves, debris, water and other nuisances out of the window area.
The homeowner is excited to have an updated an energy-efficient basement window system.
