WINDOW WELL INSTALLATION AND MAINTENANCE IN BARRIE
When rain and melting snow has nowhere to go but into your house, you’re going to have a problem! Proper drainage is key to basement waterproofing and healthy homes.
- To start with seal your cracks. Fill in the cracks and crevices in your foundation and walls with concrete sealers to prevent leaks. Check the seams of your basement window for a proper fit.
- Next inspect the gutters: Basement floods start at your roof. Check your gutters for overflowing areas during heavy rainstorms, and be sure to keep them clean year-round.
- And always to be safe, install window well covers: During the winter months, snow may begin to build up inside an exposed window well, which could eventually leak into the basement through the basement window or cracked foundation. And during the summer, intense rainstorms can pool water up to a few inches in a matter of minutes.
- That is why a properly fitting window well cover can protect your well from rain, snow, and debris build up and prevent basement leaks.
