Planning the Installation

With basement egress windows or any basement remodeling project, thoughtful planning makes for a precise installation. That is why we take a thorough look at your project during the Free Site Consultation so we can prepare a detailed, thorough and fair proposal for you. Compare our proposal with other basement contractors.

During your free site consultation, we look at:

  • Work site access routes
  • Location of utility meters, air conditioning equipment, fences and gates
  • Possible Drainage issues
  • Location of property lines
  • Basement ceiling height
  • Places to dispose of the excavated dirt from the window well

We measure based on IRC Building Codes in Ohio and Kentucky focused on:

  • Size and placement of the egress window on your basement wall
  • Location of the window well
  • Clearances from utility meters
  • Clearances from all buried utility lines
  • Obstructions that may affect the window and well installation

We mark the location of the new window with spray paint on the ground.

Next, you chose a window:

  • A wide variety of sizes and types are available.
  • Select a window that slides open or swings in and out (casement style). Double-hung windows can also be installed if space allows.
  • We recommend the high-quality window products from Jeld Wen or Anderson Windows.
  • We make sure your new window meets the requirements of all IRC Building codes in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

  • Remember the window well will be your “view.” A nice-looking well is a worthwhile investment. Take a look at our Window Well Options.
  • Foundation Builders uses durable, egress compliant, composite wells from Rockwell Inc. and Boman Kemp that provide a sturdy, textured surface resembling rock.
  • Other Rockwell Window well options include corrugated metal, wood or concrete. Powder coated steel wells are available from Boman Kemp.
