Choosing the Right Window Well Covers for Your Home

Window well covers offer numerous benefits to your home, such as aesthetics, functionality, and enhanced curb appeal. 

In addition to keeping snow, water, and debris out of your wells, they also keep your home safe from unwanted intruders, let natural light pour into an otherwise dark area, and allow an emergency escape out of your basement. But not all window well covers are created the same. The shopping process can feel overwhelming, but we’re here to help you sort it all out. Window wells should provide your home with safety, security, and shelter, and to achieve each of these, you’ll need to think about the material, size, and style of covers you’d like.

Choosing the Right Window Well Covers for Your Home

As you begin the selection process for the window well covers for your property, you need to keep those three things in mind: material, size, and style. Here’s a more in-depth look:

MATERIAL — Whether you opt for grate or clear window well covers, having them in place will keep your family safe from falls, secure from break-ins, and give your window wells the necessary shelter from the snow, rain, and other elements. The difference is how each cover looks. A grate cover looks a bit more intimidating to burglars, while a clear cover gives complete coverage and lets more light into your basement. Both grate and clear covers are strong and incredibly durable and will provide your property the benefits of window well covers for years and years.

SIZE — Before you can purchase a cover, you need to know what size you need. First, you need to measure your well carefully. To do this, measure the widest part of the well, where it meets your home, outside edge to outside edge. From the center of the well, measure to the house (not the window). Keep in mind, while window wells might look to be the same size, they could be a bit different from each other, even if the windows themselves are the same size. Don’t leave it to your eyes to determine their size and measure each well individually, as they could be slightly different.

STYLE — There are several options for window well covers, more than you might think; there are bubble covers, mesh, grate, dome, and flat to choose from. In addition to styles, these options come in a variety of materials, too. However, the most common styles are grate and clear covers and custom window well grates for unusually shaped wells. Most wells will only require a standard cover, but for those uniquely-shaped wells, custom grates are available. Regardless of the style you choose, window well covers will keep your property safer and functioning at its very best.
