Basement Windows

Windows can make your basement more aesthetically pleasing and boost safety. Large basement windows, sometimes known as "egress windows," from Pella of San Antonio are built to permit more light into underground spaces than the older, smaller, rectangular windows that are put above ground. They also offer an escape in case of an emergency.

The biggest distinction between basement, or egress, windows and standard windows is that basement windows are required to be made for an average-sized person to get out in order to meet safety requirements set forth in building codes. You are able to select from correctly sized casement, sliding or double-hung windows when you install basement windows. Make certain that you totally understand local building codes before your purchase of basement windows.
