Egress Windows

An egress window is a window you can use to exit in case of emergency. While egress windows are required for every ‘habitable space’ in a home, in most cases people looking for egress windows need them for a basement bedroom or living room.


City of Milwaukee egress window code

The City of Milwaukee follows the State of Wisconsin Building Code for residential buildings. You can find the details in Statute SPS 321.03 which specifies exit requirements from different levels of your home.

You’ll need a building permit to install egress windows. If you’re installing basement egress windows you may need additional permits to dig or expand a window well.

Egress window types

Any style of window can be called an egress window as long as it’s large enough to meet the requirements. This means you can use a casement window, single or double-hung window, or sliding window as an egress window.

Egress windows must open from the inside and be free of security bars or grilles. The type of egress window best for your home will depend on factors like how much light and airflow you want, your budget, and which room and floor it’s going in.
