Window Well Drains Installation for Hoffman Estates and Chicagoland area

Window Well Drain Installation In Hoffman Estates And Chicago Il

What is a window well? A window well, a square or semicircular embankment, is built close at the ground level used to light basements. It is positioned in front of the window to emit sunlight into the basement through the window. One problem with window wells is that they hold water, dirt and leaves that usually doesn't escape unless you clean them out. Rainwater and snow accumulates inside, causing water leakage and foundation issues. Inadequate window well drainage can also be caused by improperly installation. Water seeps through poorly installed window wells leaving stains on foundation walls. If you notice water seepage, you don't need to replace the window because the problem is with the window well.

Look for visual signs of water intrusion such as:

  • Sediment contamination of the gravel in a window
  • Poor drainage that leads to wet basements
  • Soil staining under the window frame
  • Cracks at the corner of the window
  • Aging materials that are rusting, corroding or decaying
  • Mold growth on wall or floor surfaces
  • Water puddles underneath the window
  • Trickling water down the basement walls
  • Water stains on walls
