Outside Shot of Original Window
Here you can see how easy it is for weeds and other plants to begin growing in an ordinary window well. Landscape and the elements can cause a lot of trouble for basement windows, if they are not properly protected.
Original Windows from Basement
The inside view from this window isn't much better than the outside. Keeping in mind that the goal of windows is to let in more sunlight, ask yourself why would you want to limit that light to less than 2 feet in height?
Foundation Cracks and Water Damage
Cracks like these in walls can lead to leaks and puddles in your basement. Groundwater and soil are constantly battling with your foundation walls, but FlexiSpan offers a permanent waterproof solution and won't be affected by movements in the foundation.
Fully Installed WaterGuard
Here we see a post-production view of the WaterGuard. The concrete has been returned and the slight gap to drain wall leaks is barely visible.
Close-Up Shot of Sump
The flow of water throughout the WaterGuard is directed straight for the drainage point. Usually located at the lowest point in the basement, the drainage point has discharge lines that force water out of your dry basement and keeps it that way. For more reliability, we suggest looking into our sump pumps.
Post-Production Window Well from Inside
Notice the cover over the well outside of the window. Egress windows are designed to fight the elements without taking the beating that a usual window does. The cover will prevent snow and water from filling up the well and causing leaks.
Outside Shot of New Egress Window
The wells for egress windows don't decay or rust like the typical wells. They are also installed deep into the landscape without a dirt floor, so those weeds won't return and block your sunlight.
Let There Be Light!
Now we can see what this basement was missing. Not only does the full sized egress window brighten up the room, it also goes great with the newly repaired walls.
