Basement Windows

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

The primary distinction between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows are required to be large enough for an average-sized person to make it out in order to meet safety requirements set up in building codes. You are able to pick from properly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you put in basement windows. Make sure you fully understand local building codes before your purchase of basement windows.
