Installing Egress Window
I need to cut a 4'x4' hole in my foundation to insert an egress window. The top of the current, small window is at the top of the foundation so that will be the top of the new window also. My house is a brick house. I have been told that a metal plate of some sort needs to be installed across the top of the new window opening to provide support to the bricks above. Can anyone tell me how to do that? Alternatively, does installing a pressure-treated wood box frame function the same way?
