Basement Windows

Windows are able to make your basement more visually pleasing and boost safety. Large basement windows, sometimes called "egress windows," from Pella of Woburn 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 main distinction between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows are required to be big enough for an average-sized person to make it out in order to meet safety requirements set up in building codes. You can pick from appropriately sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you put in basement windows. Make certain that you completely understand local building codes prior to purchasing basement windows.
