EGRESS WINDOWS from PELLA® of Minneapolis Egress windows are put on the basement level of your home to allow light to rooms set underground. More importantly, these windows are built for the average person to fit through in case of an emergency. But these windows aren’t only important for safety. They add light to your ordinarily 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 decrease your energy costs. Plus, these strong windows will help protect your home during extreme weather. Egress windows are bigger than typical basement windows. Consult your local building code experts and contractor to confirm that 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 added safety features.
