Do I Need to Replace My Window Well?

If we had to guess, homeowners probably aren’t paying much attention to their window wells. Aside from yearly cleaning and maintenance, how often do you check the condition of your window well? Ensuring your well is functioning properly could save you time and money in the future.

We know that you can’t catch it all, that’s why we’ve put together a list to help you identify when your well could be beyond repair and it’s time for a replacement.

Flood or Moisture Damage

If you notice leaking or flooding near the window, it could be a sign that your window well needs replacement. There are multiple factors that could contribute to this, including a drain clog, broken window, or issues with window well lining.
