Window Well Covers

Safety Precautions

Safety is the top priority when it comes to understanding why you should be buying window well covers.  While it seems that the inconspicuous holes nestled in the shadows of your home don’t need something covering them if no one will notice them. However, this isn’t always the case when kids or pets are around. If there is a hole in the ground they are going to find it, whether by accident or on purpose. Window wells can cause a variety of problems including injuries from the fall itself, the possibility they might not be able to climb back out on their own, and breaking the window when they fall.  Broken glass can cause a minor accident to become very serious.

Beyond Safety

There are also several concerns when it comes to a lack of window well covers that also goes beyond safety and are practical for homeowners.  An open window well is almost an invitation for several different scenarios including all sorts of trash and leaves collecting down in the well, nests and access for rodents and other pests, as well as hard water stains.  A simple window well cover can help minimize and even eliminate hard water stains that have a bad habit of finding their way to your windows. Your windows will stay nice, clean, covered, and protected.

So,whether it is to stop kids, adults and pets from falling down it, keeping leaves and pests out, or just to make sure that your yard is safe for anyone, take the time to purchase window well covers. There are several different styles so you don’t have to compromise your style or taste for safety.  Also, in the interest of safety, window well covers are designed to be easily popped off from the inside so that those below ground windows can be used as fire escapes.
