    If you’ve finally decided and you are on the market to buy a window well cover, then make sure you choose the best there is. The first quality they should have is strength. You can choose one made of steel or polycarbonate. These types of custom covers have the ability to hold up to 750 lbs of weight. Make sure that the company you’re buying from offers a guarantee, preferably one that lasts a lifetime. Do your research, ask around for opinions, read some reviews and choose the best company. At least you’ll know you’re getting the quality window well covers that you deserve.

    If you want more safety you can also install a lock down system. After all, most home break-ins occur through basement windows and you can never be too safe. Another accessory you can choose is a basement window well escape ladder, which is required by law on new homes with basement window wells. Safety is the main reason for installing a basement window well. If there were ever an emergency, the occupants can safely leave the basement, or emergency crews can enter the basement.

    Custom window well covers fit better, hold more weight and another advantage is that they are built with the InnerFIT system. The InnerFIT system is a unique way of building window well covers. It includes using a 2†angle iron frame that follows the inside lip of the window well, giving you the safest and most secure fit available. These covers are also easy to remove in case of emergency. To remove a custom window well cover, lift the cover up until the frame is above the window well and then slide or pull it off the rest of the way.

    An uncovered well can be a serious danger to your children or animals, even if you tried to hide it behind some bushes. It can also collect rain, snow, leaves or grass, which will ultimately affect the foundation of your home. Leaves and debris can clog drains and damage your storm windows. Uncovered wells can lead to pest infestation if stray animals and insects will find that is a good place for their nest. These are just some of the reasons to buy a window well cover. Make sure you give your contractor the exact measurements so they can tailor the item to your exact specifications. Don’t forget to mention if you want it round, square or rectangle, black or transparent. This way then will give you an exact estimate and they can properly prepare for installation.

    If you don't receive a response to your post immediately, it's only because you posted during the 4 hours we normally set aside every weekday evening for silent meditation and self awareness.

    That might be the best response to a spammer I have ever seen.
