A window well is an often neglected building component but one of paramount importance. In fact, window wells are used to prevent moisture, infiltration and flooding through basement windows, and they can be made of different materials such as concrete, steel, stone and even wood. Fixed to the foundation, a window well can retain the ground in front of a window thereby protecting your home from water damage. This allows you to raise the ground level on both sides and the front of the window without risk of water infiltration into the basement.
To install a window well you must leave 8 to 10 inches of clearance between the bottom of the window and the ground. It must be wide and deep enough to properly drain rainwater. Far from being an easy job, installing a window well is a delicate operation, which is why it is recommended you call an expert. By using Monsieur Fissure, you will get absolutely perfect results.
