3 Ways a Window Well Cover Can Transform Your Basement

Your basement can become a space to truly express yourself and create a space that will serve you well. Whether unfinished, in progress, well-used or long forgotten, your basement is an important part of your home that can always use some improvement. What are your top complaints about your basement in its current state? We’re willing to guess at least one of them can be improved by adding the right window well cover for your basement needs.

Windowell Expressions works hard to create functional window wells, home exteriors, and basements for proud homeowners everywhere.

Today we’re sharing three major ways a simple window well cover can transform your basement completely.

1. Safety.

The number one reason people purchase window well covers is for safety purposes. They don’t want their kids or pets to fall into their window wells. But did you know that the right window well covering can make your entire basement safer? The right window well covering can reduce water damage, while also making it easier and safer to exit your home through the basement in the event of an emergency. There are even window well covers that can prevent the introduction of any intruders into your window well space, to keep you more safe and secure.

2. Light.

For almost everyone, basements are a source of dim light. Because they usually rest below the ground’s surface, getting adequate light into your basement can be a challenge. However, you don’t need a full scale to remodel or basement walkout to create more light in your basement. Using a clear or open window well liner will allow the maximum amount of natural light to filter into your basement, as well as keeping the window well clear from obstructions that could block light from coming into your basement space. Think if every window well in your basement was free and clear so you could maximize the bright light to wake up your basement.

3. Airflow.

A lot of homeowners are reluctant to open their basement windows. So much debris ends up in those window wells that the windows always seem to be dirty, and without a window well cover it can also be full of foliage and even animals. But if your window well is clean and free from debris, it can actually be refreshing and healthy to regularly open your basement windows. Adding a functional window well cover can allow you to open your basement windows to maximize fresh air and proper air flow. This will, in turn, reduce any moisture or mold before it can become harmful.
