Basement Egress Door Northern VA

Need to install an Egress Basement Entrance? When installing a basement egress there are many factors that need to be evaluated. Safe egress during a fire or other emergency is your primary objective.


Knowledge of State, City and County Codes are imperative. Hire a licensed contractor to evaluate the optimal exit points. Part of the evaluation is to ensure the structural integrity of the home. Your desired location may not be optimal. Foundation Medix is a Class A licensed foundation contractor.

With the installation of an egress basement entrance, consider how the new egress will be used. Will it only be used  in an emergency or will it be used on a daily basis? How the egress will be used can be a determining factor in the appearance of the egress.

The actual installation of the egress basement entrance will involve extensive digging to expose the foundation for the entry area. The foundation will be cut and the proper header installed to support the structure before the egress basement entrance door system is installed. Generally not a DIY project.

Proper drainage and slope of the soil are also a consideration. After all, you’ve most likely remodeled the basement. Hence the need for an egress basement entrance. Flooding of your newly remodeled basement because drainage wasn’t considered would certainly be an expensive oversight.
