Basement Windows

Windows are able to make your basement appear more pleasing and boost safety. Large basement windows, sometimes referred to as "egress windows," from Pella of Springfield are made to allow more light into underground spaces than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are put above ground. They also give you an escape in case of an emergency.

The primary differentiator between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows have to be large enough for an average-sized person to get out in order to meet safety requirements set up in building codes. You’re able to choose from appropriately sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you put in basement windows. Make sure you fully understand local building codes before you purchase basement windows.
