A basement egress window allows more natural light and fresh air while providing safe emergency egress.
Building codes require that finished basement living areas have an emergency egress – an egress window large enough to allow safe exit out of the space in case of an emergency. A large window well with a step in it must also be used outside the egress window.
Here at Mission Home Services, we are certified installers of RockWell egress window wells. In addition to providing a safe exit, our egress windows allow more natural light and fresh air into the basement to make the space feel larger and more inviting.
If you’re planning on finishing your basement now or in the future, save yourself time and hassle by including egress window installation as part of your basement waterproofing project.
Safe. Compliant. Attractive.
Don’t resign yourself to ugly window wells that don’t provide you with a safe exit in case of emergency. RockWell offers an attractive alternative, while providing a safe, code-compliant basement egress.
Commonly-used plastic wells lack durability and the ability to hold back the heavy earth and water.
RockWell window wells are a one-piece, rigid construction that will not collapse from backfill or allow water to leak through the well walls. They’re UV stable, rust and rot proof, and stand up to extreme temperatures.
Our egress window wells meet the IRC Egress Code Requirements, providing you and your family with a direct escape from any of the inhabited rooms in your basement.
In window wells that are deeper than 44 inches below ground level, the IRC Egress Code requires there to be steps or permanently affixed ladders to accommodate exiting the basement.
RockWell’s egress window wells feature durable, built-in steps that make it easy for your family to escape from your basement in the event of an emergency. We also offer safety ladders for our Premier series window wells.
The sunlight and fresh air you deserve combined with the safety you need.
A polycarbonate safety cover keeps leaves and debris out while allowing natural sunlight and fresh outside air to enter your basement. While they are not intended for continual foot traffic, the 10mm fluted polycarbonate cover will hold up to 500 lbs. of weight and prevent family members from accidentally falling into the window well.
Don’t spend your time looking at plastic. RockWell has duplicated the look of real stone so you don’t have to look out of your new basement windows at a plastic-looking well. These egress window wells add curb appeal and a pleasing view from both inside and outside the house.
When you have a RockWell egress window well installed in your basement, you won’t have to worry about rust or rotting. These egress windows are constructed to withstand UV rays, rain, and snow. With our professional installation and 5 year warranty, you will have peace of mind knowing your basement windows won’t need replacing anytime soon.

“From the very beginning of the transaction, Dave, the owner was honest, upfront and professional in his interactions with me. I am more than pleased with the work but more importantly, his values instilled in me a sense of confidence in small business owners who still believe in doing what is right for customers and providing outstanding customer service. I HIGHLY recommend Mission Home Services!”
“Dave was super responsive and went above and beyond in getting my basement project completed. He kept in regular contact with me on updates to the project, expected delivery of materials, and on permitting status. Very reliable and did a terrific job on my basement retaining wall.”
“First of all, I don’t usually do reviews; however, I was so impressed with the guys at Mission Home Services that I felt the need to let others know. We had them out to inspect our basement and give us an estimate on waterproofing it for future renovations. The representatives gave us a great education on not only how a basement leaks, but also how ours was leaking and the correct method to fix it. We highly recommend this company!”
