Basement windows are often made using inexpensive frames that over time, break down, and can cause water to leak in. We recommend directing excess water into a drainage system, and following this up with routinely cleaning out any leaves, dirt or debris. Keeping your gutters clean can also help keep any water runoff from pooling around windows. In addition, installing window well covers is a very cost effective way to keep your basement even drier.
Window Well Clean Out
Keeping your window wells clean is an important part of home maintenance. We offer material clean-out including dirt, leaves, debris, and more. The cleanout of these items helps to keep the gravel clean, and in turn, keep your drains clear. In addition, we offer the re-arranging and/or replacing of gravel, which can help keep those drains clear, as well as offering a fresh path for water absorption.
Window Well Drains
Window well drains are installed to alleviate water buildup in the well/egress. These drains are tied into either a new or existing drain system, or routed to a sump pit. In addition, we recommend coverings for the actual window wells to prevent debris and excessive amounts of water from entering the well.
