Basement windows, or otherwise known as hopper windows, can lighten and brighten up your basement while providing security and improved air flow, making your basement more comfortable while adding natural light inside.
Benefits of Basement Windows
Easy to Clean
The entire basement window sash easily tilts in for quick cleaning of both the interior and exterior of the window.
Light and Ventilation
Basement hopper windows come with an exterior screen which lets the air in and keeps the bugs out. Vinyl hopper windows are also a great way to add extra natural light into any room since there is no obstruction to the glass like a grid.
Other Window Styles for Your Basement
While hopper windows are the most common for a basement, there are other styles that could work too. Depending on where the window is on your basement wall, you may be able to use sliding windows, awnings, or even double hung windows. Trying different types of windows could give your basement a unique design.
A semi-frosted, patterned privacy glass treatment is also available to add to the safety and privacy of your basement living space.
How a Basement Window Operates
The basement window has a single sash, which is hinged at the bottom and tilts open inward.
