Basement Windows

Windows can make your basement more aesthetically pleasing and offer added safety. Large basement windows, sometimes referred to as "egress windows," from Pella of Owensboro let more light into underground areas than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are put above ground. They also offer a way out if there's an emergency. Pella® egress windows are available as casement, sliding or double-hung windows.

The main distinction 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 correctly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you add basement windows. Make sure you completely understand local building codes before your purchase of basement windows.
