Basement Windows

Windows can make your basement more visually pleasing and boost safety. Large basement windows, sometimes called "egress windows," from Pella of Southern Pines are made to permit more light into underground rooms than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are put above ground. They also offer an escape in case of an emergency.

The biggest distinction 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 can choose from properly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you add basement windows. Make sure you completely understand local building codes before you purchase basement windows.
