Basement Windows

Windows have the ability to make your basement appear more pleasing and offer added safety. Large basement windows, sometimes referred to as "egress windows," from Pella of Champaign are created to permit more light into underground spaces than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are put above ground. They also offer an escape in case of an emergency.

The biggest differentiator between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows have to be made for an average-sized person to get 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 put in basement windows. Make certain that you fully understand local building codes prior to purchasing basement windows.
