About Window Well Covers
While still filtering in sunlight, window well covers protect your basement and lower level windows from outdoor elements, including weather and small animals. Basement window well covers can be purchased in either flat or raised designs depending on if and how high your windows sit above ground. Flat covers are generally referred to as “low-profile” and raised models are called “bubble window well covers”.
Upon determining the cover rise you’ll need, you may be pleasantly surprised to discover installation is relatively simple. Most window well covers quickly snap into place. Plastic window well covers also improve the insulation of your basement by providing an additional layer against wind, rain, snow and other debris.
When you’re looking to add a level of protection to your lower level windows for the first time or replace cracked or broken components, Ace Hardware can set you up with window well covers to suit your needs.
