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 egress windows are up to code. Our 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

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
