A home is most people’s biggest investment, and preventive maintenance can protect a house from deterioration. Small actions can avoid big problems, and can keep a home at its best for many years. Exterior maintenance can protect a house from the elements including extreme temperatures, humidity, precipitation and debris; so the roof, gutter and foundation should all be checked periodically. An important part of a home to be inspected and protected is the basement window well. Window wells are an entry to a basement that always collects water, leaves and debris. A window well needs to be protected with a basement window bubble.
Basement window bubbles can protect a basement from leaks and debris if they are properly fitted. The “one size fits all” varieties can be easily broken and can even blow away during heavy winds when a home needs protection the most. Customization to the shape and size of the opening is imperative to its function.
In addition to a properly fitted basement window bubble protecting from dirt, water, snow and leaves, they have important safety functions as well. They protect animals and even people from falling into window wells from above. A well fitted window well cover also provides the critical need for egress from the window wells from inside the house. Egress means the ability to escape from the inside of the house via the window well. There are house code requirements that state that egress from window wells must be possible to allow occupants safe exit in case of an emergency. A window well egress can also allow for emergency crews to enter a home from the outside if necessary.
