Installing Emergency Escape

Excavate a hole centered around the window that is 4 ft. wide, 1 ft. deeper and 1 ft. greater projection than the wall cut.

Auger a hole to tie in the window well to the home’s foundation drainage system.

Plumb, square, and straight cuts will ensure a high-quality window installation.

Caulk all framing joints to ensure a watertight installation.

Insert the bottom of the window frame first, then tilt in the top.

Slope the finished grade away from the window well.

The finished installation is clean and unobtrusive.
