We were thrilled to finally introduce the HERR Egress Basement Window at the 2016 Edmonton Home and Garden Show. It was received with much enthusiasm from contractors, and renovators as well as DIYers.
The HERR egress basement window has been 30 years in the making. Since the founder of HERR window and door, Randy Stauffer, entered the construction industry in the early 1980’s he has been using his creativity to decrease waste and bring innovation to the industry. With his 20 years in the window and door business he was able to combine his knowledge of how doors are made and how windows need to function into an incredible product.
This the answer to anyone finishing or updating their basement. Prior to the design of the HERR egress basement window, the rough opening would have to be increased significantly and with increased costs for material, labour to cut the concrete, engineering (most municipalities require engineered drawings) the average project budget would have increased astronomically. Typically we can achieve Egress conforming size with as little as 17 1/2″ height. This is a vast improvement from the current industry standard for an egress slider which is 60″ x 30″. We do not recommend having the foundation of our homes sliced, and diced without the correct due-diligence completed to ensure the foundation would remain solid. Currently the only other Egress window in a similar size on the market is the “hopper style”. This style has come under scrutiny from fire safety personnel as the window can be bumped and close, trapping the person in the window opening.

you can usually avoid the

you might in a typical
egress window install
Since the HERR egress basement window was conceived, HERR window and door has been field testing this product over the past several years. We have worked through several designs, using a variety of different materials and slight variations. The model we have released to the public has the best performance and every aspect has been carefully scrutinized for peak performance.
HERR window and door makes the frames custom to each project. We have specific guidelines and calculations for determining Egress based on our design. If you are doing a basement renovation or contemplating existing basement bedrooms, we strongly recommend ensuring you do have windows that meet the Egress Standards. It is our hope that no one should ever need the HERR Egress Basement window but with it installed, we can guarantee peace of mind.

Hey there.. just wanted to find out what the cost would be for your egress basement window.
The rough opening of my existing basement window is approximately 3 feet wide by 27 inches high. The foundation is old cinder block. I can’t put in a window well. And I live in Windsor, Ontario.
I’ve not been at all impressed with any of the other styles of egress windows in my area, however, I do like the egress window your company produces that opens fully inwards to the side. So.. I’d like to find out the cost of yours, and I need 2 the same size. I’d also need to have them shipped to Detroit, MI.
Let me know what kind of change I’ll need to fork out 🙂
