Few egress window companies hold the appropriate license and their current practice is to sway people away from pulling permits claiming it is not required or necessary to do so. Pulling a permit is imperative for safety because it ensures that a town inspector will come to your home and verify that your egress window is in compliance with current residential building code requirements ensuring the safety of the building and all of it’s occupants. Pulling a permit is not only important for your safety but also important in preventing problems when selling your home and for insurance company verification.
