Without a proper window well, if your windows aren’t draining properly, the water can flow right into your basement between the window frame or 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 send rainwater 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
  • man in excavated hole installing a window well drain

    Protecting Basement Window Frames From Leaks

    When the surrounding ground becomes saturated with water, additional rain and melted runoff collect around the exterior of low-lying basement windows. Window well installation plays a vital part in protecting the integrity of basement window frames. Your home’s specific location and floor plan impact this result.
    Architects frequently design basements to include windows in order to optimize natural light in the lowest level of the residence. Even if you own an unfinished basement, windows in these locations offer significant advantages. Yet the absence of a window well may facilitate the intrusion of water through leaking ground-level window frames, especially after heavy downpours.

    Basement Windows Water Drainage

    Rain splattering against basement windows unprotected by a well typically collects in pools beside the window frame, which can lead to foundational cracks along the corner of your window frame. This process will eventually deteriorate the frame. Wooden window frames may warp, or begin rotting. Wells help promotes better water drainage.

    Benefits of Installing a Window Well

    Customers sometimes wonder why the addition of window wells to homes in the Greater Vaughan Area matter so much. This type of home improvement has gained popularity during recent years for several important reasons. Professionally installed window wells offer homeowners at least three key advantages:
    1. Waterproofing Value: As discussed previously, obtaining an accurate window well installation through an experienced waterproofing company helps avoid costly damage to the premises. Accurate window well installation helps prevent water damage to the exterior of the residence, while also preventing some seepage into basements and foundations. This makes a huge difference in the long term satisfaction of a property owner with the residence.
    2. Basic Fire Safety Assistance: If you do own a residence with basement-level windows, the easiest, safest route out of the home for people using the basement during a fire may be through a basement window. Carefully installed window wells may supply a way for residents to exit through the window and then climb to safety. Today, many manufacturers have designed attractive basement window well coverings which will slip over the well to prevent accidents in the yard. However, these coverings must also allow someone escaping from the premises during an emergency to remove them from within the well to gain access to the exterior of the home.

    3. Enhanced Marketability: In some cases, homeowners remodel unfinished basements. They may create additional living or workspaces downstairs. If someone does make the significant investment required to finish an unfinished basement and install basement entrances, it might prove important for economic reasons to increase the number of conforming bedrooms in the residence. This effort ultimately promotes the marketability of the property. Depending upon the floor plan, the window well installation performed during this type of home remodeling project often impacts whether or not residential properties are able to obtain needed designations.

    Pavel came today to fix a clogged drain pipe in our house. Everything was fixed and he showed up the grease which clogged our drain pipe. The price was fair and he showed up the same day. I recommend MT Drains to anyone looking for a trusted plumber in Toronto.

    We called MT Drains and Plumbers to investigate water marks on our kitchen ceiling. We've called other plumbers before. They were happy to cut holes in the ceiling but couldn't determine where the water was coming from. Dickson arrived on time and quickly located the source of the leak which was from the shower in our master bedroom. He was very professional and personable. I would use MT Drains and Plumbers again.

    The crew of MT drains & plumbing did an excellent job of repairing our foundation and replacing weeping tile. Pavil is very knowledgeable and their pricing is very fair for the work they completed. His two man crew were excellent hard working guys. They cleaned up the work zone to the maximum. We would highly recommend this company. 5 stars for sure.

    We had a pipe leaking just before the water meter and main shut off. It was an emergency repair because we were unable to turn off the water to stop the leak. The company was extremely responsive, booked an appointment for the same afternoon and sent a follow up email to confirm. The plumber showed up on time and was very skilled and competent. Plumbing work was excellent. Billing practices less so. On viewing the pipe they quoted $600 to do the repair. I agreed because it was Friday afternoon at 2:30 and with a leak in progress didn't feel I had the luxury to shop around. Definitely felt gouged. The repair took 30 minutes and couldn't have used more than $50 in parts. Would definitely recommend for non emergency repairs when you can get competitive quote but would recommend caution for urgent repairs due to price gouging

    Eddie and Pavel are fantastic. The service experience was beyond my satisfaction. They installed a complex sewage ejector vent along the side of my house to the roof and also a tankless water heater. Their crew worked diligently, were professional and respectful in our home with proper clean up. I'd highly recommend their services. They also are very competitively priced on job quotes and estimates.

    MT Drains installed a water softener and water filter at my house. The install was quick and they showed me how to use the equipment. I like the fact they separated the waterline that I use to water my lawn so I don't pour softener water into the ground! The equipment is great and very quite. I hear a lot of people complain about the taste of the water comes out from the water filter, all I can say my kitchen filtered water tastes great and we drink it all the time. If you live north of the city I definitely recommend getting a water softener and filter! the difference is very noticeable!
