Basement Windows

Windows have the ability to make your basement appear more pleasing and improve safety. Large basement windows, sometimes called "egress windows," from Pella of Cheyenne allow more light into underground spaces than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are put above ground. They also provide a way to get 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 must be made for an average-sized person to get out in order to meet safety requirements outlined in building codes. You’re able to pick from correctly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you install basement windows. Be sure you fully understand local building codes before your purchase of basement windows.
