Iowa Egress Window Requirements

Iowa egress window code states you must have an egress window installed in every bedroom in the basement. According to the 2006 IRC–International Residential Code requirements, egress windows, and wells are required under the following circumstances:

  • If you add a bedroom in your basement, an egress window must be installed.
  • If you create a habitable space in your basement and you currently do not have an egress window, one must be included with the installation of the habitable room.

At WCI, we will make sure your basement windows are up to code. Our egress window installation team is trained to make sure your egress windows are safe and meet the requirements. If you are interested in learning more about our process, contact us today. 

Window Well Cover Installation

You can count on a closed well cover to be sturdy enough to support up to 500 pounds while eliminating the risk of anyone falling in the well. The cover is also light enough for a child to escape easily.

Our easy-to-install system is a great option when considering a window well cover. They have many benefits including:

  • Choose between a one-piece unit or a modular unit that can be stacked to any depth with no bracing necessary.
  • Well covers can be attached to the well easily and protect people and pets from accidentally falling in.
  • Windows are shipped “ready to pour” with the sash and screen inside the frame for one-step installation

Add safety to your basement window well by getting a well cover. This is a great way to prevent outside accidents and reduce debris getting in your window well. 

Window Well Products

Wellcraft egress window wells are made from polyethylene with UV inhibitors. This durable material gives them superior weathering capabilities and no maintenance once they have been installed. They are warranted against rusting, rotting and decay for a period of ten years.Basement Egress Window
