Window Wells for Rural Living

If you’ve got a rural house with a basement, odds are you either have window wells or need them. That’s where we come in: no matter where you live, Window Well Experts can help. We were founded in 1975 in the small town of Delavan, Wisconsin, and since then, we’ve been making and selling high-quality window well products for homeowners and builders. Just call or email us seven days a week, and we’ll offer you good advice and a free estimate. With shipping across the United States and Canada, it’s easy to get window wells, covers and accessories custom made to fit your home and your needs.

The Benefits of Rural Window Wells

Window wells are the answer to a lot of common problems the rural homeowner faces. Whether you’re on a farm, in the woods, high in the mountains, or beyond, a window well protects your home from water damage. Without a well, rain, snow and ice can collect in the area around your windows, damaging your home and raising the risk of flooding. If the ground collapses around your basement windows, it can easily cause damage that will cost thousands of dollars to fix. In addition, a home without properly covered window wells is vulnerable to dirt, leaves and other debris collecting beneath your windows, as well as rodents, insects, spiders, and other animals, who’d love to make a home next to your home. A securely covered window well keeps them out while providing your basement with clear, beautiful natural light.

Emergency Exit Wells

Do you have a finished basement? No matter where you live, if you have a bedroom or other finished rooms in your basement, your local building codes almost definitely require a window well suitable for emergency escape or rescue. Whether or not your basement is finished, egress is a particularly important factor in choosing window wells for rural living. In case of fire or other disaster, it’s important to have a way to get out, or for emergency personnel to get in. We offer galvanized steel and composite egress wells in many shapes and sizes, and we’re able to comply with building codes across the U.S. and Canada. (Ask your local building inspector for the specific requirements in your area!)  

Big Selection in Small Towns

It can be hard to find a good selection of window wells and accessories in many parts of the country. Big box hardware stores frequently offer only a small selection of window well shapes and sizes, and their products are often cheaply made and flimsy. Meanwhile, many homes in rural areas have window wells made of lumber or stacked stone, which are prone to leakage and collapse. Thankfully, Window Well Experts is here to solve your problems. We have window wells in dozens of heights, widths, depths and shapes, and can make wells to order if we don’t have what you’re looking for. Because we custom make all our window well covers, you can be sure they’ll fit securely on your wells, and because we use practically unbreakable, UV-treated Lexan (TM) polycarbonate to make those covers, you can be sure they’ll last for years to come. No matter where you live, Window Well Experts is proud to bring the largest selection of high-quality window wells and accessories to you.
