Clean Window Wells Out

An essential step in autumn prep is to clean out your window wells. With fall comes plenty of rain, and as the seasons shift again, depending on where you live, you can expect snow. Getting your window wells cleared out can protect your home against floods and window leaks. For your wells to properly drain, they must be clear of any debris, especially leaves.

In addition to being a leak and flood culprit, decaying leaves at the base of your well create a displeasing view from your basement. Moreover, as the temps drop outside, rodents, insects, and spiders begin to move inside. Clearing away leaves, trash, and weeds will hinder these critters from making your home theirs.

Invest in Window Well Covers

Now that you’ve spent a couple of hours cleaning out your window wells, you’ll want to do what you can to prevent new debris from entering. The best way to keep leaves and other wind-blown debris out of your window wells is to cover them up with window well covers.

Window well covers are a worthwhile investment. Not only do they keep debris, insects, and animals out of your wells, they protect your home against break-ins and unwanted visitors, protect your loved ones from dangerous falls, and also protect against floods that can cause major water damage to your home. Whether you select grates or covers, you can find a window well cover that complements your style and design and meets your needs.

Have an oddly-shaped window? Not to worry; a custom window well cover will do the trick.

Add Window Well Liners to Your Window Wells

Dropping temperatures outdoors means spending more time indoors. Make the most of your basement spaces by adding window well liners to your home. Window well liners can be an extension of your style and just might be that finishing touch that ties the entire look of your basement together. Basic metal liners can look unfinished, clash with your style, and be an eyesore, but with a customized window well liner, your space will look intentional and complete.
