This home owner in Colebrook, CT called Dr Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions out to his home because he had water coming into his basement from his windows! To fix this we did two things, one was replace the old basement windows with new slider basement windows. The other treatment we did was we installed new Sunhouse window wells.
To do this, first, we have to remove the old metal window well. This was just one piece of metal going around the perimeter of the hole and not protecting the window at all. Then we dig the well deeper than it already was. Once we do that, we had some stone aggregate to the bottom of the hole. Then we install the window well with the cover to let in some nice natural light into the basement. To finish it off we back fill into the open ground with dirt and replace the mulch that was there.
Now that Dr Energy Saver by Eco Energy Solutions came an took care of this problem, this home owner will not have to worry about leaky basement windows ever again!
