Egress Window Installation & Repair for St. Louis Homeowners
Stratum Structural Systems is the premier egress window specialist in St. Louis. Egress windows are designed to provide home occupants a safe place to exit during a time of emergency, and are required to be installed in all basement bedrooms. Egress windows are also a great way to add natural light to an otherwise dark basement and can raise the value of homes. The process that Stratum goes through with egress window installation is unique and superior compared to most competitors, yet very reasonably priced at the same time.
We have access to a vast network of manufacturers, suppliers and fabricators of egress window products, which allows us to help design the right window for each customer’s desired space. Stratum regularly installs Rockwell and Marshall egress wells.
Our daily commitment to excellence, professionalism and honesty has set us apart in the industry. All Stratum estimators are experienced in egress window installation and have personally performed the work that they recommend. Additionally, they receive ongoing, continuing education and are educated in IRC codes and municipal requirements.
