Basement Windows

Windows can make your basement more aesthetically pleasing and offer added safety. Large basement windows, sometimes referred to as "egress windows," from Pella of Haverhill are made to permit more light into underground rooms than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are put above ground. They also offer a way out in case of an emergency.

The main difference between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows have to be big enough for an average-sized person to make it out in order to meet safety requirements outlined in building codes. You are able to pick from properly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you put in basement windows. Make certain that you totally understand local building codes before you purchase basement windows.
