Installing new basement egress windows can be hugely beneficial. This includes allowing in more natural light and keeping the drafts and even possibly water from getting in which can help save money on your heating and cooling bills.
Installing windows wells around your windows can not only let more light in but will also help prevent flooding around the windows by allowing the water to drain away from the windows.
When you get a new egress window installed, we will also be sure that the window well is in good shape and has a working drain. If the drain doesn’t work like it should or is clogged, you could have a buildup of water in the well whenever it rains. This water could eventually break the seals on the window and make its way into your basement environment. This water will stain your walls and floors and ruin anything in its path!
