Installing a Basement egress in a stone foundation

Many old basements can only be accessed by interior stairs from the main living space and most weren’t built with large windows. If you’re looking to adding additional sleeping space in your basement, you’ll need to add an opening to the outside. We have the skills and equipment to cut an opening in your stone foundation and add an egress that meets code requirements. There are many practical advantages to adding an egress in your stone foundation:

  • Easy access in the event of a fire or another emergency
  • Adds natural light, brightening an old, dark basement
  • Adds value and is an excellent selling feature
