5 reasons your home needs a window well cover

It’s a fact that window well covers make a great addition to your home. Don’t believe us? Here are five reasons your home needs a window well cover!

#1 They Add Beauty
Your window well covers add beauty to your home. Many homes are required to have egress window, but that doesn’t mean they have to look ugly! An egress window isn’t very safe without a cover. Any old cover will do the trick but if you choose a clear window well cover, or standard grate cover from Windowell Expressions, you can use it as an opportunity to add even more beauty to the outside of your home.
Not only that, but the light that comes through your clear or grate window well cover will have an incredible effect on your basement. The more natural light you’re able to get, the more beautiful and comfortable your basement rooms are going to be.

#2. More Energy and Less Energy
With all that extra natural light, you’re going to feel a boost in your mood, especially if your room is in the basement! This means more energy and a happier outlook. Sunshine can bring a smile to just about anyone! At the same time, more natural light means you’ll have to spend less on your electric bill. As you take advantage of the natural light streaming through your windows, you’ll be happier and a tiny bit richer.

#3. They Protect Your Family and Pets
Everyone knows that looks aren’t everything. This saying applies to your window well covers too! They may look good, but they do a lot more good than that. Your window well covers do a lot to keep you, your home, and your family safe.  One way it does this is by keeping your family members and pets clear of the open pit that is your egress window. With a window well cover in place, you won’t have to worry about pets or people accidentally falling down into your window wells.

#4. They Protect Your Home from Intruders
Your window well coves also protect you by keeping unwanted intruders out. Let’s face it, egress windows are a major draw for buglers and other intruders. They provide easy access to your home and are usually well hidden from view. When you have a window well cover, you can be confident that no one is getting into your home uninvited. The covers from Windowell Expressions are easy to lock securely from the inside, making it impossible to gain entry from the outside.

#5. Keep the Elements Out
Last but certainly not least, your window well cover is going to help protect your home by keeping the elements out. A cover will help keep out lots of that heavy Utah snow that piles up in the blink of an eye, all those pretty fall leaves that are beginning to fall, and even some of those spring showers!
