Basement Window Behavior

Usually, homeowners favor the window that best fits their type – who doesn’t want a killer curb appeal? But when it comes to basements, many homeowners care ultimately about safety and energy efficiency. Lucky for you, Pella professionals cover you on the safety, style and energy efficiency spectrum while on your hunt for basement windows.

Safety: When you are picking what style or size of window you would like to install in your basement, safety should be your first priority. It is important to explore your local building rules, as they may require that windows are a certain size or work in a certain way to allow you to get out in an emergency situation. These are commonly referred to as egress windows.

Style: There are many basement window styles to fit each homeowner’s preference. The most frequent styles used for basement windows are fixed, awning, casement and sliding windows. When selecting a window style, you must establish how or if you want it to open, the size you would like it (or that is enforced by local building codes), the desired shape and how much light you want to let into your basement. The more light you allow into your basement, the bigger it will look. Many basements are a larger spot, but the lack of light can confine the space.

Save Energy: Top-quality energy efficient windows can help you remain warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Uniformly important to the product is a promising installation and you can hire a professional to finish your project. With a quality product and a quality installation, you can be happy in the window and its installation for years to come.
