Basement Windows

Windows have the ability to make your basement more aesthetically pleasing and offer added safety. Large basement windows, sometimes known as "egress windows," from Pella of Kingston are made to permit more light into underground areas than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that sit above ground. They also provide a way to get out in case of an emergency.

The biggest differentiator between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows have to be big enough for an average-sized person to escape through in order to meet safety requirements set up in building codes. You can select from correctly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you install basement windows. Make certain that you completely understand local building codes before you purchase basement windows.
