    But, how do you know when you need to think about basement window replacement?

    Some clear indicators that you need to replace your basement windows are: 

    At Basement Remodeling Brooklyn we offer a variety of windows for your basement:

    Egress windows: Egress refers to leaving. An egress window is large enough for an adult to go through in case of a fire or other emergency. As a property owner you are legally required to have an egress window basement if the space is used for any kind of dwelling such as a bedroom or rental suite.

    Hopper windows: These are a typical choice for basement windows as long as the space is not used for dwelling. A hopper window is typically wide and has a bottom hinge that allows it to be opened inwardly for decent ventilation.

    Awning windows: Again these windows are not meant for basements used for dwelling. Awning windows open outwards from the bottom of the window frame allowing ventilation, yet still keeps out precipitation.

    Sliding windows: Sliding windows slide on a track. If you go with this option you just have to make sure the windows are large enough for an adult to go through in case of emergency. These windows offer limited ventilation due to the fact that only half of the window frame can be open at a time.

    Casement windows: Casement windows open fully outward. Casement windows can be installed in a basement used for dwelling because there are larger sized options available for this type of window and thus it’s effective for someone who needs to get out of the basement via a window during an emergency.
