After living in his house for several years, a homeowner in Fredericktown, OH, noticed some issues with one of the foundation walls of the barn on his property. This wall had various cracks and gaps, indicating it was settling.

After living in their house for many years, homeowners in Fredericktown, OH, wanted to improve the safety of their home. One room in the basement was used as livable space, more specifically a “man cave.”
According to the International Code for One-and Two-Family Dwellings, all habitable spaces, including basements, are required to have at least one operational emergency escape or means of egress.
The homeowners contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through our website. They were eager for us to install a functional egress window.
After excavating the area outside where the new window system was to be installed, one of our expert crews carefully cut into the block foundation wall to make room for the window. The new window’s all-vinyl frame is rust-resistant, and its double-pane glass is energy-efficient.
A lightly-colored window well was installed outside the window, which allows more natural light into the basement. A durable clear cover was attached to the well to enhance safety as well as keep leaves, debris and precipitation out of the window well.
The homeowners are happy to have an updated basement window system that enhances the safety and appearance of their home.
