EGRESS WINDOWS from PELLA® of Des Moines Egress windows are put on your home’s basement level to allow light to rooms set underground. But, more importantly, these windows are built for the average person to crawl through in case of an emergency. But egress windows aren’t only important for safety. Egress windows add light to your ordinarily dark basement, making these rooms more pleasant to spend time in. Like all Pella windows, many of our egress options are ENERGY STAR® certified, which may lead to lower energy costs. Plus, these durable windows will withstand extreme weather. Egress windows are bigger than the average basement window. Review with 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 offer you peace of mind and added safety features.
