Safe & convenient basement access with egress stairwells

Egress stairwell

Egress Stairwell. An egress stairwell provides a safe entrance and exit to your basement.

Do you plan on turning your basement into an additional bedroom, an in-law suite, or a rentable space? Most building codes require you to have a safe exit point for each basement bedroom. While some building codes don't make sense, this one keeps you and your loved ones safe.

Imagine there is a fire and you cannot exit the home through the interior basement stairwell – you'll need an additional exit point. An egress stairwell provides that and more, with many even becoming a beautiful source of natural light to your basement! Plus, we custom-build your stairwell to match your home's aesthetic and needs.

The team at Basement Systems USA can design the egress stairwell you need! Schedule a free basement egress stairwell estimate to learn more. We will inspect the area and create a beautiful, safe egress stairwell perfect for your home! We proudly serve Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland areas throughout Baltimore, Philadelphia, Ellicott City, and nearby.

Why install an egress stairwell in Greater Philadelphia and Baltimore?

Before basement egress stairsAfter basement egress stairs

A finished basement can open up so many opportunities for a home. A rentable space, an inlaw suite, a playroom for the kids, and an additional bedroom are just some of the possibilities. But if there is ever a furnace fire or an emergency where you cannot access the interior stairs exiting the basement, you will need another way out of the home. Basement egress stairs provide so much more than just peace of mind in case of an emergency. They can also add convenience, comfort, and style to your property.

Plus, as a basement waterproofing company, we can assure your egress stairs are floodproof and won't create additional humidity or moisture problems for your below-grade space. This includes The TrenchDrain™ Grated Drainage Pipe System, which prevents flooding into the home from hatchway entrances, down stairways, or through garage doors. Any water passing over the drain is collected through the openings and redirected to your sump pump.

Advantages of egress stairwells by Basement Systems USA

  • Safety: In case of an emergency, egress stairs provide a safe and convenient exit out of the home.
  • Convenience: Basements are great for storing boxes, tools, gardening equipment, winter items, and more. With basement egress stairs, you can eliminate the hassle of having to go through your entire house when you need to access your storage.
  • Creating an attached dwelling: If the basement has an entrance separate from the rest of the home, you can now transform your below-grade space into an attached independent dwelling for renters, parents, older children, and more!
  • Return on investment: Having a separate entry point for the basement is a big selling point for potential buyers, as many may want to turn the area into an in-law apartment or a rentable space. Plus, the added convenience, natural light, and beautiful design is bound to boost the curb appeal and property value!
  • Basement waterproofing expertise: While egress stairwells have a reputation for leaking and flooding, Basement Systems USA has the unique advantage of being a waterproofing expert. That means we know exactly what it takes to create a safe, beautiful egress stairwell that also keeps your basement dry.
