With a basement, a home can enjoy nearly double the living space on the same footprint. In Colorado, where the water tables are fairly low, basements are mostly a foregone conclusion. Builders now install egress window systems in new construction, but the codes for such are relatively new. This means plenty of existing houses were built with inadequate basement window systems and lack the safety features attributed to egress windows. Whether or not you are remodeling your pre-code basement, you should still retrofit at least one egress window into your subterranean living space.
