Drainage issues

If you’re having any kind of drainage or water issues with your window well, you need to quickly resolve the issue or get your window well replaced. One of the most important things your window well does is successful drain water away from your basement window. This is to prevent flooding in your basement, water from pooling in your window well, and any other associated water damage.

And because your window well serves as an emergency escape route for your family, it’s important to make sure it is in good working condition. If there is any damage to your window well that could make escaping in an emergency more difficult or more dangerous, you’ll want to get your window well replaced.
