A window allows sunlight and air to enter the room, but if there are no wells, water leaks through them. Its installation is recommended when the foundation is below ground level.

How it is work?

A window well works like a storm door, preventing water from seeping into the room through the basement window. It also protects the window glass from debris from the street that can damage it.

Windows are inserted into an existing wall and are curved or rectangular polyethylene or galvanized screen. They are fixed to the foundation of the house. They function only at ground level. The well is covered with a cover to prevent debris from falling from above.

Lids can be bubble-shaped, semicircular, or rectangular, made of polycarbonate, and resistant to mechanical damage. They are attached to the top of the well. They are translucent and work like greenhouse covers, retaining moisture but letting in light.

Most Common Causes
