Naperville was once a quaint farming town that has evolved into an affluent city and is the 5th largest city in Illinois. This growth can cause some problems with living space, and being a rich city, land and property can be a tad expensive. Families who need extra space for their growing families will find that extra land can be prohibitively expensive.
However, there is good news. If you have a basement, you can convert that into a living area, whether as an extra family room or a bedroom for your teenage son. The only cost you’ll have is for converting it, but it will be much cheaper than having to buy an extra parcel of land or a bigger house.
If you do decide to convert your basement, there are some regulations that need to be followed first. One of these is having basement egress windows. It gives proper ventilation and acts as an exit point in case of emergencies. Anyone who plans to convert their basement is required to have egress windows installed. Even if it’s not required though, you’d still want one. After all, a windowless room can be a bit claustrophobic for anyone.
To have a proper basement egress window installed, you should call a Perma-Seal professional. Sure you can attempt to install one yourself, but why bother yourself with proper fittings, making sure it’s sealed perfectly, and generally making a mess? A Perma-Seal professional will get the job done right and will even help you clean up after – a chore no one want to handle alone, for sure.
