Basement Windows

Windows have the ability to make your basement more visually pleasing and offer added safety. Large basement windows, sometimes known as "egress windows," from Pella of Tucson are made to permit more light into underground rooms than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that sit above ground. They also offer an escape in case of an emergency.

The biggest difference between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows have to be made for an average-sized person to get out in order to meet safety requirements outlined in building codes. You’re able to select from appropriately sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you add basement windows. Be sure you totally understand local building codes before your purchase of basement windows.
