Considering the addition of window well covers to your home will come with a few questions. You’ll want to know the cost, the window well covers to choose from, and how long they will last.

Keeping out Debris

Unlike a grate window well cover, a clear window well cover will keep out more debris. Because of the clear design that covers the entire window well opening, leaves, twigs, and anything else that previously could have found its way into your window well will now be unable to! That means no jumping down into the window well each fall to rake out wayward leaves. After a wind storm there will be no need to worry about picking up twigs or trash that may have blown into the window well; a clear cover will keep out all debris!

Keeping out Pets

A loved pet is one of the last things you want to find trapped in your window well, and is easily avoided with a window well cover. With its ability to hold an impressive amount of weight, a clear window well cover is an effective way to keep pets out. Unfortunately, children can also wander and are susceptible to falling into an uncovered window well. Adding a clear cover will ensure the safety of every family member, whether a toddler or pet.

And if you live in Utah, there are other animals besides pets to worry about potentially falling into your window well. Deer, rabbit, and even recently a mountain lion, have been known to get trapped inside window wells. These animals can go about their business without falling and getting trapped with the addition of a window well cover.
