    Seeing how the new room in my basement would need some windows, it seems like I would need to install windows like this. How thick are these type of egress windows that's shown in this picture? I would like to get some windows that would be tough enough and not break easily like my front windows. http://www.reliablebasement.com/47501.html

    The windows are standard construction windows, so the window frames are about 3" thick. The glass is standard double pane glass. Depending on the installation application and codes, you could also get the windows with tempered glass. Not sure of the brand of existing windows that you have that have broken easily, but you may want to contact the manufacturer about what their warranty is!
