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 Norwalk are built to allow more light into underground spaces than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that sit above ground. They also offer a way out in case of an emergency.

The biggest difference 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 forth in building codes. You can pick from appropriately sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you install basement windows. Be sure you totally understand local building codes before your purchase of basement windows.
