Basement Windows

Windows have the ability to make your basement more visually pleasing and boost safety. Large basement windows, sometimes called "egress windows," from Pella of Birmingham are made to permit more light into underground spaces than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are put above ground. They also give you a way to get out in case of an emergency.

The main differentiator between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows must 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 choose from correctly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you add basement windows. Make certain that you totally understand local building codes before your purchase of basement windows.
