EGRESS WINDOWS from PELLA® of Washington DC Egress windows are put on your home’s basement level to allow light to rooms set underground. Most important of all, these windows are built for the average person to crawl through if there’s an emergency. But egress windows aren’t only important for safety. They add light to your typically dark basement, making it more enjoyable to spend time in. As is true for all Pella windows, many of our egress options are ENERGY STAR® certified, which may lead to lower energy costs. Plus, these strong windows will withstand extreme weather. Egress windows are bigger than a common basement window. Contact your local building code experts and contractor to make sure everyone knows your local building code requirements for egress windows. Most of our replacement window product lines include egress replacement options that meet emergency requirements to provide you with peace of mind and additional safety features.
