New Series: What You Need to Know about Egress Windows

Thinking of adding an egress window to your basement? Buyers alert! Your contractors may not know they are destroying your foundation.

In the coming weeks, Level will present a series on cutting large pieces of your foundation away to add egress windows. We’ll show you foundation failure examples and things to avoid because of improper installations.

So before you do this:

Contact a structural engineer for a consultation with you and your contractor.

These preventable damages to your home are heartbreaking. Don’t solve one safety problem by creating a larger one.

We’re here to help get your project started the right way. Give us a call at (720) 408-0119, and our client relations team will assist you in scheduling an appointment with one of our engineers.
