New window opening in existing residential foundation

Postby daz » Wed Sep 04, 2019 10:24 am

Is engineering asked for when putting a new opening, such as for an egress window, in an existing foundation? These new openings would not have typical reinforcing (sides/bottom) and may be by a corner as well. Are new anchor bolts required if the changes for the new opening affects proper bolt locations?
