What to Expect from Window Well Installation?

Window Well Installation 
Process

Window well installation is no ordinary task. If you are looking to get all the benefits of using a window well, it is important to get it installed properly. One of the crucial elements of window well installation & maintenance is proper drainage system installation. Proper drainage will prevent water from accumulating around the window, as a result, you won’t get a basement water leak and won’t need to repair it.

 

While the details vary, here is an example of our window well installation process in Toronto:

 

  1. Excavation – is often the first step in any type of window well installation. Our team will excavate deep enough to reach the weeping tiles to ensure your window well is connected to the drainage system. This will prevent floods around the window well in the future.

  2. Weeping Tile Test – a crucial step needed to prevent repairs soon after the window well is installed. Our team will make sure the drainage system functions properly and that the window well can be connected to it without weeping tile cleaning.

  3. Wall Waterproofing – digging deep to install the window well will expose the wall. Our team will seal it with liquid rubber to help prevent basement water leaks through the cracked wall in the future.

  4. Air-Gap Membrane – second step in waterproofing the exposed wall. While the liquid rubber may be enough on its own, we recommend adding an additional layer of protection – better safe than sorry.

  5. PVC Pipe Installation – our team will use a 4-inch PVC pipe to connect the window well to the weeping tile system.

  6. Window well Installation – finally the prep work is complete and now the window well can be installed. This process will vary slightly depending on the type of window well you would like to install. Our team will make sure the window well is installed properly and remains in place after the installation.

  7. Backfilling – our team will use a layes of backfilling soil and drainage gravel to make sure the water flows to the weeping tile properly. In addition, we will help remove the remaining soil, so you don’t have to worry about it.

Window well installation is an excellent way to enhance the look & functionality of your property. Get one of our experts on the phone to discuss your window well installation today!
