Basement Windows

Windows can make your basement more visually pleasing and improve safety. Large basement windows, sometimes called "egress windows," from Pella of Overland Park are made to let more light into underground spaces than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that sit above ground. They also give you a way out in case of an emergency.

The main 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 forth in building codes. You’re able to pick from properly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you add basement windows. Make certain that you fully understand local building codes prior to purchasing basement windows.
