If you’ve even considered investing in window well covers, you’ve probably asked yourself what the benefits of doing so will be. It is important to make sure you get your money’s worth, and that your time and efforts to choose a reputable company and a good cover are worthwhile. There are many reasons why having a window well cover will benefit your home and family. Keep reading for three of these benefits!
Benefit #1: Well-being
Window wells are a helpful and essential part of your home. However, these window wells can be a fall hazard when small family members and pets are playing in the yard. The last thing you want is for someone to forget about or not see the window well, and fall in. That is why one of the benefits of having a window well cover is for the well-being of your family and visitors. A window well cover will keep others from falling into the well, even if they accidentally step on the grates.
Window wells also provide natural light to what would otherwise be a very dark living space. A window well cover allows you to continue to enjoy the benefits of natural sunlight while protecting those playing in the yard. You may even save a few bucks on your electric bill too!
Benefit #2: Protection
Besides protecting you and your loved ones from an unnecessary fall, window well covers protect your home from water damage. The cover can keep out much of the heavy snowfall Utahns are used to, and keep that snow from piling up against the windows. And when the time comes for the snow to melt, you won’t be over-burdening your window well drainage system either. Window well covers can also help keep leaves, twigs, and other debris from falling into your window well. This means you’ll have to clean out the well less, and the drainage system is much less likely to be compromised.
When properly latched, window well covers are nearly impossible to enter from the outside. This is great news for homeowners because if ever an intruder targets your home, you can rest easy knowing they won’t gain access through your window wells! With a window well cover you can make it impossible for burglars to get in, while still giving your family an escape route in emergency situations.
Benefit #3: Aesthetics
There are many benefits to having a window well, but when viewed as part of the overall aesthetics of the home, a hole in the ground is not that appealing. By adding a window well cover, you can transform a simple hole into a beautiful and intentional element of your home. Not only will a cover improve the look of your home, it will improve the value as well. And with an added barrier between your home and leaves, twigs, and trash, your wells will stay more presentable as well.
