Window Well Installation & Replacement

Bring sunlight into your below-grade living space

Many homeowners today are taking advantage of the extra space that used to be wasted in their basements by making them into newly finished family rooms, game rooms, or bedrooms. When this is done, you may want to add a source of natural light, even though the room is located completely under the ground.

To solve this issue, window wells can be installed against your home’s foundation. Window wells are dug into the ground so that enough of the foundation is exposed to install a window. The window will then be able to let in sunlight to better illuminate your basement. There are, however, risks involved when working close to your home’s foundation, therefore you must consult with a contractor that is experienced with this work before proceeding.

How do you keep your window wells from flooding?

Any dip in your lawn can let water build up, even after the briefest rainstorm. Window wells are no exception to this. Worst of all, a window well can be a fast route for water to seep directly into your home, especially with a window there. It is extremely important to make sure that your window wells are constructed and installed correctly. If the grading is off, rainwater will be guided right to your home. If there isn’t a drain installed in the well, the water will build up and leak through your foundation. Any work that is being done must have an expert’s eye on it to ensure there is no chance of water build-up or leaks.
