Basement Windows

Windows have the ability to make your basement more aesthetically pleasing and offer added safety. Large basement windows, sometimes known as "egress windows," from Pella of Charlotte are built to allow more light into underground spaces than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that sit above ground. They also give you a way out in case of an emergency.

The main differentiator between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows have to be large enough for an average-sized person to escape through in order to meet safety requirements set forth in building codes. You can pick from properly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you install basement windows. Make certain that you completely understand local building codes before your purchase of basement windows.
