Why do Window Well leaks happen?
There are several reasons why a window well can leak. Its construction may have been improperly done, or poor workmanship was applied or even disrepair leading to improper fastening to the wall could be the cause. Poor drainage can also be considered.
In case of an old building with windows not having been repaired for a long time, they become damaged and badly clogged. This can cause water to gather in the well. When this happens, it can seep in through the window frame, walls, or through the window itself, leading to dampness in basement, particularly around the problematic areas.
Window Well Solutions
The primary solution to a window well leak is the installation of a quality new well that is expertly constructed allowing for a good drainage to direct water away from your home. Aquatech Waterproofing can undertake repairs to the existing window well, or install new drainage. We can even fit a whole new window well system but it all depends on nature of the problem and most suitable solution to be offered to permanently resolve the matter.
We will discuss possible options with you, and confirm the extent of water damage through free field assessment and consultation. Based on the field assessments, we can dig down to the weeping tiles, unblock the clogging or provide replacement tiles as may be required before fitting the window well, and doing backfilling and tidying up the working areas.
In the event that there are damages to your foundation or basement caused by water leaks along the window well, we can also repair this for you to restore your home to its former glory.
