When choosing a basement window, having an egress, or “escape” route, can be just as important as security. That is why the basement windows we use allow for everything—ventilation, security, and easy exit in case of an emergency.
New & Replacement Basement Windows
We offer basement window installation and replacement services for customers throughout Chicagoland, and we always provide the highest quality products. A tilt-in sash paired with reinforced Lexan (also called “Exolite”) allow for ventilation and security, while another sash is easily lifted and hung to the side. Serving as an exit in case of emergency, our basement windows also serve as egress windows, taking care of all your needs within this space.
Casement windows are commonly used in the basement because they help to maximize efficiency while providing natural light and properly ventilating this space. They are also an excellent choice for egress windows, as they can be quickly and easily cracked open in the event of an emergency.
Double-hung windows may not be as efficient as casement, but they offer other benefits. These types of windows are very stylish and their attractive look is easily maintained. Plus, they are easy to open, with lower and upper sashes that can be pulled open, making them ideal for egress windows.
Sliding windows are the least efficient of the three and can be quite drafty if precautions are not taken. However, they are also the easiest to open and close, making them a popular choice for meeting fire and building safety requirements.
We offer our basement windows from trusted industry brands like:
- Thermal Industries
