Basement Windows

Windows can make your basement more aesthetically pleasing and boost safety. Large basement windows, sometimes called "egress windows," from Pella of Memphis are created to permit more light into underground areas than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are added above ground. They also offer a way to get out in case of an emergency.

The biggest distinction 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 set forth in building codes. You’re able to select from correctly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you put in basement windows. Make sure you completely understand local building codes before you purchase basement windows.
