Basement Windows

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

The primary distinction 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 up in building codes. You’re able to select from correctly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you add basement windows. Be sure you fully understand local building codes before your purchase of basement windows.
