Window Well Installation Hamilton

Most often it is difficult for a homeowner to find the exact reason for water seepage. You may not see any visible cracks in your foundation or water built up in your basement, but there are several ways water could be penetrating your home. Having a window well installed would help you in keeping the water away from your foundation.

What Is A Window Well?

A window well is a structure that is placed outside the basement or below grade windows so that light can enter while keeping water and soil away from the walls and windows. The main purpose of this well is to keep your basement clean and moisture free and it will collect and drain water when it rains or snows. Without proper window wells, water will be collecting against your foundation and seeping into your home. It may not be visible to you until the water threshold reaches a certain value. That is why it is important to have an expert examine the site and determine where to install window wells.

Also, if the drain is clogged, or the window well is damaged or not installed properly, then water may stay in the well and will eventually leak through the walls, window frames or even windows. This will make your basement wet and leaky. Window wells are extremely useful if your windows are located below grade as they keep your basement and foundation dry and free from infiltration.

Benefits Of Installing A Window Well Hamilton

There are several things that you need to consider while getting your window wells installed. If you have a high level of soil against your foundation, then a window well can protect your basement against water seepage.

Window wells protect your window frames from damage. When water builds up on your window frames, your frames get rusted and lose their ability to insulate your home. The constant standing water begins to penetrate through your windows and eventually leaks through your walls into your home.

No doubt it is important to seal your windows, but window wells help a lot in giving extra protection particularly when it rains or snows. Window wells are also great for yards with uneven soil distribution.

They can be extremely useful for homes where the plumbing upgrades are old and are not well equipped to handle the extra water that comes with the rainy or snowy seasons. Another big advantage of window wells is that they keep your foundation and basement dry and moisture-free. They add natural light and aesthetic appeal and help in the circulation of natural air making your basement unit airy and beautiful.

The main thing is to improve the drainage, so if you do not hire proper experts your situation might become worse. Our professionals will find the appropriate place where they will place the window well against the window. We will dig a hole and place the window well right next to the foundation.

Then we will do drilling to secure the window well in the correct place. We will then fill the bottom with gravel and fill the extra spaces around the window well with soil so that it stays in its place even in the worst of seasons.


If you have previously installed window wells but the water is leaking because of an issue with your window well, our experts can do a quick examination and determine the cause for a water leak.

We had some issues with moisture in our basement as we back on to the Bruce trail hillside. I contacted Aquatech and within a couple days, Shawn came out and assessed the issue, made recommendations and supplied a quotation. This was all done quickly and very professionally. Their pricing was competitive with the other two quotes I received. I chose Aquatech because of Shawn and their excellent reviews. Shawn was a pleasure to deal with. If I had a question, he always picked up his phone and never rushed me. Slava led the 4-man crew that performed the work. He was also very professional and kept me in the loop with their progress each day. He also spent the time to explain the process as I have a habit of asking many questions. Slava and his team worked during four of the hottest days of the summer and never complained. They completed the work on time. I cannot believe how hard they worked. They even made a point of cleaning up the work site before they left. I would highly recommend them.

Excellent service and quality of workmanship. I had a massive wrap-around deck that had to be removed in order to complete the work. The employees saved the joist and labelled each board allowing me to keep the order consistent. As a result I was able to save significant money on the rebuild only having to purchase decking boards. This consideration was unexpected and definitely appreciated. I would recommend this company with confidence to any of my friends or family.
-Private User, Hamilton ★★★★★

Oleg and Joseph did a really great job! They were clean, courteous, friendly and paid attention to detail. They answered any questions we had throughout the process. I'm happy with their services and recommend Aquatech Waterproofing to anyone.
