Basement Windows

Windows have the ability to make your basement appear more pleasing and offer added safety. Large basement windows, sometimes known as "egress windows," from Pella of Shrewsbury are built to allow more light into underground rooms than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are put above ground. They also provide an escape in case of an emergency.

The main difference between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows are required 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 pick from properly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you add basement windows. Make certain that you completely understand local building codes before your purchase of basement windows.
