Old Basement Window Solutions

If your basement windows are old, ugly, and drafty, they are probably costing you more money than you think. When basement windows and window wells are not of quality construction, they won’t protect your basement from the elements. Instead, they allow excess moisture, humidity, and cold drafts to enter your basement, along with ants, termites and other pests. You might want to consider basement window replacement.

Old-fashioned basement windows typically have metal frames and single-pane glass. When the metal rusts, the window pane no longer fits properly in the frame, leaving room for drafts and energy loss. By removing old windows and replacing with Thrasher’s energy efficient vinyl windows you’ll see a dramatic efficiency improvement over older basement windows. Insulated, double-pane glass in our egress windows adds another layer of efficiency over drafty single-pane windows.

As you plan to have new basement windows installed, consider installing a true egress window to complete your basement finishing project. Enlarge the window opening, allow for more natural light and, satisfy newer building code requirements for an emergency escape route from your basement. Our specially designed window wells offer the appearance of fine masonry with the strength and durability of heavy-duty composite construction. The one-piece design eliminates the potential for leaks and features a built-in step. A clear, polycarbonate cover keeps your window well clear of rain and debris.
