How to Choose the Right Basement Windows
There are many different types of basement windows to choose from, but it really depends on if you have a “daylight basement” or not. A daylight basement is when your home rests on a slope and the front of the basement has one or more full-sized windows that are aboveground. If all of your basement is underground, then the basement windows are going to be wider than they are tall.
Basement Window Materials
Try to avoid using wood around your basement windows because the window is low to the ground and can attract moisture, which in turn can promote shrinkage or rot. Vinyl-framed windows can be more easily cleaned, will not attract mold, and since they have become an industry standard for basements, they are easily replaceable. Aluminum is the second most popular choice for framing basement windows.
