Basement Windows

Windows can make your basement more aesthetically pleasing and offer added safety. Large basement windows, sometimes called "egress windows," from Pella of Portsmouth are built to allow more light into underground rooms than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that sit above ground. They also provide an escape in case of an emergency.

The biggest difference between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows must 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 properly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you put in basement windows. Make sure you totally understand local building codes before your purchase of basement windows.
