Not installing a small thing like window wells can lead to a big expense later.
If your windows aren’t draining properly, the water can flow right into your basement between the window frame and the top of your wall, or it can leak through the window itself. One bad rainstorm can lead to enough water to cost you thousands of dollars in damage.
Window wells are a simple fix, but need to be installed by an expert. Failure to install them correctly can do more harm than good and send rain water directly down your wall into the basement. With so much at stake, this is usually not a do-it-yourself job, and you should trust trained professionals.
Window drainage problems can cause:
- Water leaking directly into your basement from the window
- Sediment contamination of the gravel in a window well
- Damage to walls, wall studs and drywall

Thank you for all your excellent work!”
