Short Course on Windows – Getting to Square 1

Guide to Window Wells and Its Benefits It’s not surprising why our law and insurance companies support an inclusion of a window well in residential basements, and this is true even if your basement is unfinished. It represents several sound structural components that start with one’s safety. Your basement that is equipped with a window well can serve as an escape, exit, or entrance during emergencies like fire, burglary and etc. It is also a good way to allow natural light and ventilation into your basement space which is typically dark and damp. With window wells, you can save money on utilities, and increase your home’s overall value since their design and materials come in a variety of beautiful stone and metal finishes that add charm to your home exterior. Having a window well have many benefits, and if you interpret well to mean like a well of water, there will be issues connected to it. The well can become a point of entry to the basement of rain, water, snow, and ice during inclement weather since they are located just above the surrounding soil of the house. Because window wells come with covers, we cannot say that it is like a well of water but rather the opposite is true. The well is a drainage network or a water down spout so that water can be redirected down the drain instead of entering through the window. Usually, a window well cover is a wall covering that surrounds your window and a drainage system that lies underneath the lower surface of your window so that every time there is a downpour or snow that lands inside your window cover, it can be efficiently drained out. Some window well covers are designed with a screen hatch on top to prevent debris from clogging the drainage while some are built to support the weight of either human or animal from getting trapped in that cage. It can be hazardous to small children and pets to have window wells that are very deeply constructed.
