Window wells add a nice aesthetic to the exterior of your home. However, they can contribute to moisture accumulation inside of the home. Water can get into the window wells and eventually seep through the windows, causing water damage. Here are just some of the benefits of investing in window well covers.
Basement windows aren’t the best at keeping out drafts and moisture. This can actually lead to an increase in those already expensive energy bills. WIndow well covers help to improve insulation in the basement by keeping drafts out. They also protect your basement from some of the harsh sun rays, while still allowing natural light to come inside.
If someone tries to break into your home, they may aim for the basement windows because they are low to the ground and easy to access. With a window well cover, you add an extra layer of protection to your windows to deter potential intruders. These covers are designed so that they are near possible to open from the outside.
Since window well covers surround the entirety of the window, you don’t have to worry about water getting through. They are made to be leak proof so that water can’t make its way through, even if there is a big storm. This helps to protect your basement from potential flooding.
Though window well covers may look like they are fragile and easy to tear through, they are actually very durable. They are an outdoor fixture so they are designed to withstand various weather conditions. Your window well covers won’t collapse even under heavy snow or debris.
Though they are near impossible to open through the outside, window well covers are made to be very easy to open from the inside. If there is an emergency inside of the home and you have to escape quickly, you can easily open the cover from your basement window and climb out of the home.
