Want To Call Your Harford County Basement a “Living Space” or Rent It Out?
The state of Maryland requires an Egress Window in Every Sleeping Room.
If you own an older Maryland home with a basement you may have already discovered the need for an Egress Window or two as your family grows and you look into expanding into the basement space. For those of you who don’t already know, any room in your home, including the basement that somebody “sleeps in” or “lives in” must have an egress or exit window that can lead a person to safety in the event of a fire or other catastrophe in order to be legal and building code compliant.

Egress Windows For Basement Suites in Maryland
As you now know in order to consider the basement as a legal “living space” each room that someone sleeps in must have an egress window. The installation of an egress window is fairly straightforward in most situations but should still be completed by a professional contractor. You must dig an areaway outside the home and jackhammer a portion of the foundation to frame in the new egress window. The windows will need to be sized correctly based on the size of the room as in the formula for natural light above.
