Best - Window Wells and Covers (3)
Window wells are essential for homes or other structures with underground basements, providing the reinforcement needed to hold back water, debris, and layers of earth. They also allow for basement windows to let in light. Most are made of corrugated and galvanized steel to deliver strong, reliable, and long-lasting performance while also standing up to the elements. There are also acrylic models that provide window protection while increasing light filtration. Choose from many sizes of steel window wells available to fit windows of varying widths and heights.
When choosing a well for a window, make sure that when installed, it will be 4 to 6 inches above the surface of the soil and that the bottom will be at least 8 inches beneath the window's bottom. A window well should also be 4 to 6 inches wider than the window itself. Installation is easy, thanks to pre-drilled holes. Wells also prevent dirt from entering an open window, and help protect a basement against leaks during rainstorms and from other water sources. Some also feature a folded top hem for additional protection.
Window well covers protect basement windows. They come in sizes to fit many popular window well sizes, and they keep natural debris such as leaves and dust from entering the well space. Many of the clear acrylic models are sloped or bubbled in shape to let water run off and avoid accumulation. Others have a hinged feature that easily opens and closes for cleaning access.
Rona also carries a wide selection of window hardware, such as folding handles and crank handles for opening and closing casement windows. Choose from sash lifts in metallic finishes and latch mechanisms to work with cranks. Locking handles keep windows securely closed. There are also sliding windows in different sizes to install around the home in bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms.
