Grates can be made for any shape or size well (square, rectangular, half-circle, U-shaped, etc). There is no such thing as “standard” here. Each well is unique, and we go into each project with that mindset.

We can give your grate a “finishing touch” with powder coating colors of black or gray, or a custom color to work with your home’s colors, and customize your grate with an escape hatch.

Installation of these window well covers couldn’t be easier.  All that needs to be done in most cases is to remove the cover from the box and set it in place.
