Basement Windows

Windows can make your basement appear more pleasing and improve safety. Large basement windows, sometimes called "egress windows," from Pella of Newport are created to let more light into underground areas than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are put above ground. They also offer a way to get out in case of an emergency.

The biggest difference between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows are required to be made for an average-sized person to get out in order to meet safety requirements outlined in building codes. You’re able to pick from correctly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you install basement windows. Be sure you totally understand local building codes before you purchase basement windows.
