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.

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.
It could be that due to shoddy workmanship that you don’t have your window well in the correct place. In this case, our experts will examine your existing window wells and suggest how best to rectify this problem. You may also need new window wells if you are having new windows especially in the case of basement renovations.
