Windows & Building Codes


Building codes include provisions to ensure that windows do not pose an undue danger to building occupants by requiring safety glass in hazardous locations such as windows close to floors, near bath tubs, on stair landings, adjacent to doors, at the bottom of stairs and others.

Also, certain windows installed in bedrooms, basements and other locations are required to meet “egress” requirements to provide a means of exit in case of a fire or other emergency.

Please discuss this with us and we will be happy to help you make sure that your windows will be code-compliant. This is always best done before windows are purchased from us or anybody else.
