Basement Windows

Windows are able to make your basement appear more pleasing and improve safety. Large basement windows, sometimes referred to as "egress windows," from Pella of Casper allow more light into underground areas than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that sit above ground. They also provide an escape if there's an emergency. Pella® egress windows are offered as casement, sliding or double-hung windows.

The primary difference 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 can pick from correctly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you add basement windows. Make sure you totally understand local building codes prior to purchasing basement windows.
