Double-hung windows (windows that slide up and down) don’t work well because they have to be almost 5 ft. tall in order to meet the minimum openable area requirements—more digging and a deeper well. Sliding windows don’t have to be as tall as a double-hung, but they do need to be wide. It takes a 48 x 48-in. sliding window to meet the minimum egress requirements. Casement windows are usually ideal because the entire window swings open. That means you can install a smaller casement window than other types. A 29-in. wide by 47-in. wide (outside frame dimensions) window will meet the requirements, and you can go even smaller if the window is equipped with special egress hinges. Modern casement windows with a single lock are also the easiest for a child to open. Check window sizes in manufacturers’ catalogs at any home center or window and door store.replacing basement windows 4You can permanently put an end to these basement window problems with innovative basement window upgrades from Basement Systems.
