Basement window wells are not only aesthetically appealing, but they also serve two important functions: providing natural light to basements and allowing for emergency egress in the case of a fire.
Basements are usually dark places with little natural light. This is due to the fact that they are typically built below ground level, so window placement is difficult. Window wells allow for sunshine into basements, which helps define the space and makes it less dark and gloomy. They also makes the area more accessible to use if other lighting systems fail.
Besides from being appealing, window wells also provide a safe escape route in basements. In case of a fire, they act as an egress that allows people to leave the home safely without having to go through thick smoke. They can easily be opened which allows for easy emergency access.
Window well installation is an excellent investment. They provide a lot of value, whether it's additional light in your basement or an emergency exit. For window well installation, contact us now. Our experts are qualified and experienced, and they're prepared to offer you with quality services.
Window wells are excavated and built around the basement window. They can be made using concrete or steel, depending on the manufacturer. Concrete is the most popular material for window wells. This is because it allows light to pass through while still providing a firm barrier against dirt and moisture outside.
Concrete window wells are typically created by building metal forms attached to the house's foundation wall with anchors and screws. A pre-made metal unit is placed in the forms, and a concrete mix is poured into them. The window well is then finished with waterproofing material to prevent water from accumulating in it after curing.
