Basement Windows

Windows are able to make your basement more aesthetically pleasing and offer added safety. Large basement windows, sometimes referred to as "egress windows," from Pella of Petoskey are created to permit more light into underground rooms than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are put above ground. They also offer a way to get out in case of an emergency.

The primary differentiator between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows have to be big enough for an average-sized person to escape through 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 you purchase basement windows.
