Windows have the ability to make your basement more visually pleasing and boost safety. Large basement windows, sometimes known as "egress windows," from Pella of Greensboro are created to allow more light into underground areas than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are added above ground. They also give you a way out in case of an emergency.
The main 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 up in building codes. You’re able to select from properly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you install basement windows. Make sure you completely understand local building codes prior to purchasing basement windows.
