Our founder Theo Stephens explores the process and options for installing egress windows in the latest issue of Michigan Home & Lifestyle.

Egress windows add welcome light to basement offices, playrooms, or home gyms. If you’re thinking of selling your home, an egress window adds value – more than $16,000 added value to a house in Ann Arbor or more than $20,000 in a market like Birmingham, depending on size.

We see a lot of interest in our egress window kits from homeowners in the Upper Midwest (including Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin), no doubt because they want to add more livable space for their families.

The Spring issue is on sale at newsstands now. Click here to read the entire article.
