Egress Window Replacement

Location: Oak Park, IL

Challenge: Replace the old windows in this second floor bedroom while preserving the appearance of the original double hung units & meeting modern egress code requirements.

Solution: Install new outswing casement windows with a custom grill pattern emulating a double hung window. Because these casement windows operate in a similar fashion to doors, the majority of the opening is easily accessed when the sash is opened, satisfying egress requirements. When these windows are closed, it’s hard to tell they’re not double hung units when viewed from the outside.
