Basement Windows

Windows have the ability to make your basement appear more pleasing and improve safety. Large basement windows, sometimes called "egress windows," from Pella of Monroe are built to allow more light into underground areas than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are put above ground. They also offer a way to get out in case of an emergency.

The primary difference between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows are required to be large enough for an average-sized person to get out in order to meet safety requirements outlined in building codes. You can pick from correctly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you add basement windows. Make certain that you fully understand local building codes before you purchase basement windows.
