Do I need to have two exterior exit doors in my house?
Thursday, October 25, 2018
The required exterior exit door is called an “egress” door in the building codes. Just one is the minimum requirement, and it must provide direct access from the living areas of the home to the exterior without traveling through a garage. See our blog post How many exit doors are required for a house? to learn more about the specific requirements for egress doors.
Mobile homes, however, are required by HUD to have two egress doors. For more details, see our blog post How many exit doors are required for a mobile/manufactured home?
