Basement Windows

Windows are able to make your basement more visually pleasing and improve safety. Large basement windows, sometimes known as "egress windows," from Pella of Davenport are made to allow more light into underground areas than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are put above ground. They also provide a way to get out in case of an emergency.

The primary distinction between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows must be made 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 properly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you install basement windows. Make certain that you fully understand local building codes before your purchase of basement windows.
