It was once fairly common for Maryland homes to have nearly windowless basements. Basements were for storage and furnaces and water heaters. The older homes might have narrow windows that opened inward to let in fresh air and a little light, but weren’t large enough for a large child to pass through, let alone a full grown adult. That’s where today’s egress windows come in.
Egress windows are far larger than the older narrow windows and let in more light and air. Even more importantly, egress windows work as an exit in case of an emergency. This makes both common sense and legal sense. Egress windows are required by law in many residential homes, sadly because of far too many tragedies that occurred in the past. Being able to exit quickly can mean the difference between life or death.
