Basement Windows

Windows can make your basement more visually pleasing and boost safety. Large basement windows, sometimes referred to as "egress windows," from Pella of Providence are made to allow more light into underground rooms than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that sit above ground. They also give you a way to get out in case of an emergency.

The main distinction between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows have to be big enough for an average-sized person to get out in order to meet safety requirements outlined in building codes. You’re able to select from appropriately sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you install basement windows. Be sure you fully understand local building codes before you purchase basement windows.
