This Battle Creek, MI homeowner was interested in a replacement basement window. The standard basement window is a small rectangle occasionally equipped with an aluminum or metal well encasement. Windows like these work well in most basements because lighting usually isn’t a huge factor, but when homeowners go through the effort of finishing their basement they prefer to be able to see it. At least that was this homeowner’s viewpoint.
To replace the original window, the team had to excavate the soil around the well and recut a larger hole into the wall. Our egress windows are vinyl framed and designed to never rust or decay like steel or wood-framed basement windows. The wells are the same way. Being made from plastic instead of metal means the well will keep the new window protected from a variety of elements without ever needing another replacement. As you can see in the after photo, the new well was installed with a cover on top and deeper into the ground than the previous unit. The cover allows light to reach the basement, but the homeowner will never have to worry about water getting in and ruining his window or walls. The one-day installation finished up just in time for the owner to enjoy the summer sun shining in through his new basement window.
