Its versatility makes it possible to be installed and trimmed to the profile of any type (steel, plastic, brick, wood tie, concrete etc.) basement window wells.

Customer Questions & Answers

Installing window well cover

I read this review but could not visualize how the customer did it to have some air circulating and install it at an angle. Please help to explain it in more details so that I can buy the same cover and install the same way for my window well cover. Thank you "Decent product but I wouldn't trust anyone weighing 250 to walk on them. I installed them at an angle to promote run-off and get some air circulation at the sides. Made supports out of 2X6" cedar boards braced with 6in lengths of PT balusters attached with stainless L brackets." Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality and did the job very well ! This unit was used on a concrete window well over 100 years old but required very little modification. Because of how the house and window well were configured, I decided to join the cover to the house through siding at about 15 degrees so water would run away from the house. I also used a pair of small brass hinges for the attachment. This way I just lift the cover up for any cleaning of the well from leaves, etc. I also put a small latch in the center of the aluminum frame to hold the cover open during cleaning. Everything has worked out great! Unit was a little expensive but in this case I got what I paid for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent window well covers Decent product but I wouldn't trust anyone weighing 250 to walk on them. I installed them at an angle to promote run-off and get some air circulation at the sides. Made supports out of 2X6" cedar boards braced with 6in lengths of PT balusters attached with stainless L brackets. Just set the back edge of the cover on the board. Also used strips of white vinyl interior trim attached with construction adhesive to camouflage the bright aluminum support pieces because they looked weird with our old house. Had to make cuts in one to allow for AC lines. The aluminum was tough to cut but the plastic cut easily with a jigsaw. They're a vast improvement over the flimsy pieces of corrugated plastic that my husband used for covers, that I fell through once and the grandkids fell through twice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Window well cover Was not aware when buying the cover that it attaches to the outside of the well rather than the wall of the house. The cover cannot be attached to the well if you live in an old house (ours is circa 1938) if the perimeter of the well is brick. We have the cover just sitting on the well which is not ideal. Seems strong and would work well on a newer home. Expensive for what it is.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overpriced I was disappointed in the quality of this product. It was basically a piece of polycarbonate with a few pieces of aluminum riveted on. Easy to manufacture yourself for under $30 which is what I intend to do. If you have the skill to install this, you could easily make it yourself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I Was Looking For Shipped to my door quickly, no damage to packaging. You must drill your own mounting holes but this is to account for all the slight variations of installed well frames. I'm not a fan of the latch system so I modified it and used my old clips. Bottom line it's what I was looking for to replace the previous covers which were less sturdy and worn out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What I Needed This is a very heavy duty window well cover that I purchased as a replacement for a very flimsy one that cracked when I inadvertently stepped on it when it was covered with snow. While I haven't tried to bear my 110 pound weight on this one, I believe that it could easily stand up to it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice product but very poor installation instructions The directions for installation were essentially unintelligible to this non-engineer. I fortunately had no need for it to swing open, so I just screwed it to the house which worked fine. There is no way I could have figured out how to install it to swing open with the directions which were provided. The product itself seems adequate for the purpose.
