Windows have the ability to make your basement appear more pleasing and boost safety. Large basement windows, sometimes called "egress windows," from Pella of Cheyenne are built to let more light into underground spaces than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are put above ground. They also offer a way to get out in case of an emergency.
The primary 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 set up in building codes. You’re able to choose from correctly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you put in basement windows. Make sure you fully understand local building codes before your purchase of basement windows.
