Windows are able to make your basement appear more pleasing and boost safety. Large basement windows, sometimes known as "egress windows," from Pella of Wellesley are made to allow 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 primary distinction between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows must be large enough for an average-sized person to get out in order to meet safety requirements outlined in building codes. You are able to choose from appropriately sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you install basement windows. Make certain that you fully understand local building codes prior to purchasing basement windows.
