Basement Window Well
Your window wells can easily fill up with water if the drain in them isn't working like it should or is clogged. Also, a lot of homes in the area don't even have drains or covers installed on the wells. This can cause a lot of basement waterproofing problems, especially in older homes where the basement windows already have fragile or weak seals around them. If this sounds like your home, then it is likely time to get brand new windows installed which are much more efficienct, safer, and less prone to letting water seep inside.
As a homeowner, you might be wanting to know what warning signs to be on the lookout for which may indicate that you have a problem with leaks and your window well. The most obvious sign would be if you see water dripping down the wall and onto the floor. Also, the water may be dried, but you could still see the stains on the walls where it once was. You may also walk around your foundation and notice that the window wells are filled up with water. If you notice any of these signs, you need to get in touch with us immediately to stop any additional damage in or around your home.
As with most water problems, when there is an issue, a control system is necessary. The implementation of a system to collect and divert the water out of your home is the best option for a leaking basement window.
