Ottawa Egress Window

Updated: May 5

With the continuing rise in housing costs, more and more people are renovating their Ottawa homes for different reasons. Rental income, children staying home longer or even a beloved family member moving in.

Renovating the basement to accommodate a bedroom will require an egress window.

What is an egress window?

An egress window is a type of window that can be easily opened from the inside without any keys, tools, or physical difficulties to allow an individual to escape in the event of an emergency such as fire.

What do egress widows cost?

Great question! Well the egress window itself will vary depending on a number of factors. Braden Foundation has always put QUALITY as the number one factor when deciding on what egress window to install.

All too often we see people purchasing a low cost window that does meets the square foot requirement but it’s operation, such as sliding capabilities or latching is lacking in ease of operation.

Think about it this way, at the one moment you need to use that window to escape (and we hope you never need to use it), you will want that window to work seamlessly with ease. Dirt, grime and time will affect all products as they age.

So purchase a quality egress window from Braden Foundation and sleep with comfort knowing you chose quality.
