Egress Window Well Replacement...New Town, ND

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012 by Keith Hansen


A homeowner in New Town, ND, contacted Innovative Basement Authority when water started running into her home through a basement window. The water interrupted the use of her basement living space and would likely get worse without intervention. Upon inspection, the Innovative Basement Authority specialist determined the leak was due to an improperly installed egress window well. When egress window wells are correctly installed, they should be carefully fit to ensure proper drainage. The homeowner's well did not prevent water from coming near the home, nor did it efficiently drain the water that did get in.


Because the homeowner frequently used her basement living space, it was important that the leaky window be dealt with immediately. After our specialist discovered the old egress window well was installed too far below ground level, the Innovative Basement Authority team installed a new egress window well made from durable metal. The new well is deeper and at the correct 3” above ground level. The new deeper well will ensure that water cannot easily flow into the it, keeping water away from the window and out of the basement. Because the well has been fit to ensure drainage, it will guard the owner's home from damage if water does make it into the well. With the water issue solved, the homeowner was able to continue enjoying her basement.

If you have a problem similar to the homeowner's, Innovative Basement Authority can help you! We will send an expert to your home to identify your problem and find a solution that will help you achieve your goals.
