When homeowners don't pay attention to their basement windows, they tend to fall into disrepair - especially if they have wood frames, which are vulnerable to mold and water. The owner of this window in Valley City, North Dakota knew it was time for a chance when their wood-framed egress window started to crumble.
Innovative Basement Systems stepped in to install an attractive vinyl-framed, double-paned egress window that will adhere to safety regulations, allow light to enter the basement, and improve the basement's energy efficiency.
The Foundation SupportWorks Wall Anchor System uses anchor rods connected to earth anchors as well as a plate on your basement wall. This system is an affordable long-term solution to bowing basement walls.
The Innovative team replaced the wood-framed windows with new vinyl-framed windows. The new windows won't support mold growth and, when sealed properly, are much more energy efficient than the old windows.
With the egress window completely installed, the homeowner now has a much more energy-efficient - and attractive - source of light in their basement.
