The Bright Idea Difference - Designing the Best Egress Window

 Bright Idea Egress

The Old Way

Reduced Install Time

By following Bright Idea process, installation can be completed in less than one day

Traditional egress window installation involves more excavation, more backfill and more compaction over multiple days

Minimal Foundation Impact

Patented ExoFrame design requires less concrete cutting because 3 sides of an existing buck can be left intact

Wood frame solutions require removal of up to 30% more concrete from the foundation

Superior Structural Integrity

A 4x4 steel ExoFrame supports 3000 lb. load at the center point & 6000 lbs. of overall load

Traditional wood frame solutions do not rival the superior strength qualities of ExoFrame

Better Security

Impact-resistant glass with multiple locking points

Varies based upon quality of window

Less Excavation Effort

Dig (and compact) 30-50% less dirt for well excavation, easily fasten to foundation with the only well design to feature interior flanges

Conventional exterior flange requires digging more dirt around well, poses greater settling risk to foundation, and involves unpleasant effort of hanging upside down to attach well to foundation 

Premium Window & Hardware

High quality European-style tilt & turn window with adjustable German hardware which can be fitted to shorter household members

You get what you pay for

More Light

ExoFrame provides up to 30% more glass area relative to foundation cut

Less glass relative to foundation cut because of wood framing

Integrated Solution

Everything you need in one complete easy-to-install kit

Multiple trips to hardware store to collect materials

Superior Environmental Seal Patented no-mess butyl gasket process eliminates sealing issues from traditional methods and
requires minimal use of caulk
Caulk exposed to elements will inevitably fail, no single caulk works best for all surfaces because they have different expansion, contraction and adhesive characteristics

Less Maintenance

ExoFrame requires no maintenance and is termite-proof

Regular maintenance required to seal & preserve typical wood-frame solutions from elements

Versatility Works with nearly any foundation type Different solutions for different types of foundation

Industry Leading Warranty

ExoFrame & well covers have a lifetime warranty, window wells come with a 30 year warranty, windows come with a 10 year warranty

Product warranty typically limited to 1 year, read the fine print
