Medium Size Window Wells
Medium-sized wells are non-egress window wells. They have a large enough opening to allow plenty of light and air to your basement. Nonetheless, their projection is lower than the IRC-accepted egress well opening.
Many homeowners confuse the 24”- and 30”-projection items with egress window wells. But they are not. Still, they are a good source of light and fresh air. So check out our medium-sized well selection!

Our experts are often approached by confused homeowners, unsure what size window well they need. Don’t worry! The general rule of thumb is:
- Depth: min 8-12 inches below the lower sill of your basement window
- Width: leave min. 2” on either side of your window’s rough opening
- Projection: Depending on the use of the well (egress or not) might vary. Please, consult an expert.
IMPORTANT: All basement window wells are measured to the inside dimensions. They do not include the 2-inch flange on either side.
There is no easy answer. Everything depends on your budget, the purpose, and the size of the well. In addition, the weather and ground conditions in your area can influence the choice of the most suitable window well.
There Are, However, Several Factors To Consider:
- Egress Compliance – The most critical consideration when purchasing a window well. If the basement window is meant for emergency exit, your window well must comply with your local “means of egress” codes.

- Materials – Nowadays, window wells come in various materials, from galvanized steel to fiberglass and plastic. The higher the quality of the materials, the more expensive and durable the well. So, before you decide, make sure to inquire about the warranty and durability of the well.
We offer a wide array of wells, from economy class to high-end fiberglass creations. Each well is designed to last, not bend under pressure, and keep water out and away from your basement window.
- Aesthetics – Standard corrugated metal wells are a great, sturdy option, but sometimes you want to add some aesthetic value to your window well.
We offer a range of egress window wells such as white wells, decorative stone-look wells, fiberglass stacked stone, and other window egress well solutions. You can also get a decorative liner for your galvanized window well as another option.
- Durability – We proudly offer the best wells on the market. Correct installation and a well-fitting cover will extend the life of your window wells, keep animals and debris out of your well, and most importantly, keep snow and rain outside, where they belong.
Egress codes vary on the State and County level. If you have a question on the window well-sizing requirements to make your basement egress code compliant, please call us at 1-888-650-9355.
Aside from the most common galvanized steel window wells, we also provide a plethora of options. Stone look galvanized steel basement wells are ideal when you want the strength of a galvanized steel well. The product gives an attractive stone look without the price of a stone well’s installation or without a natural stone well’s possible leaks.
Our bright white egress-sized wells have a clean, bright look. Both the Standard Galvanized and our reflective White Wells come in a wide variety of sizes. Please see product pages for specifics.
Stacked stone fiberglass window wells are one-piece egress size deluxe products that have built-in steps. They are available in two widths to accommodate larger windows. In addition, these rigid, sturdy wells will not warp, shift or collapse due to their method of construction like some soft plastic wells will.
Some window wells, like the stacked stone window well, have a build-in egress ladder, so it is unnecessary to purchase anything else to meet IRC code. When buying these, you do not need to buy a ladder.
Standard galvanized, decorative stone look and white window wells still need a ladder to be egress-code compliant. Ladders are sold separately. Please see our egress ladders here.
