Basement Windows

Windows can make your basement appear more pleasing and offer added safety. Large basement windows, sometimes known as "egress windows," from Pella of West Springfield are created to permit more light into underground spaces than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are added above ground. They also provide an escape in case of an emergency.

The biggest differentiator between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows must be made for an average-sized person to make it out in order to meet safety requirements set up in building codes. You are able to choose from appropriately sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you install basement windows. Make sure you completely understand local building codes before your purchase of basement windows.
