NE Des Moines before
Here is another inferiorly-designed and installed window well that was attached to the window frame with inferior anchors, this time in NE Des Moines.

The window well pulled the window frame in (an egress well should NEVER be attached to the window frame, but always to the foundation itself).

So each heavy rain allowed massive amounts of water to run into the basement through the bowed-in window frame. The customer tried holding the well’s sides out with boards, but that technique didn’t help.

We came in and installed a top-quality window well that was properly sized and attached to the foundation with stainless steel anchors.

We're happy to report that after heavy rains, the basement now stays dry! All that’s needed now is for the customer to clean and repaint the window frame.
