Basement Windows

Windows are able to make your basement more aesthetically pleasing and improve safety. Large basement windows, sometimes known as "egress windows," from Pella of Winston-Salem are built to allow more light into underground areas than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are put above ground. They also give you a way out in case of an emergency.

The primary differentiator between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows must be big enough for an average-sized person to get out in order to meet safety requirements outlined in building codes. You are able to pick from appropriately sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you install basement windows. Make certain that you fully understand local building codes prior to purchasing basement windows.
