Q. How do I measure? A. For liners, you need to take a perimeter measurement and a depth measurement. You can measure from either inside or outside the well, just be safe it hurts to fall in. With your tape, wrap it around the inside perimeter concrete to concrete or into the window depending on your style of well. Now measure the depth. We suggest adding 2” to the depth so you can bury it below ground but if you want to add some rock to dress up the bottom don’t add anything. Email the size and style and we will do the rest.
Q. How do I measure a foundation? A. Best thing is map out the area you want to cover. Measure the lengths and heights and fax it to us at (801) 270-9357 and we can help you lay it out.
