Sometimes you ask yourself like “should I need to install egress window well or normal basement window well for my basement.” What is the different between normal well cover and egress window well covers?
Our basement needs to protect pests, small debris from entering from basement window. It is also concern about preventing your children and pets falling into your window well. If your home inspector advises you to install basement window well covers, you need to follow instruction and rule. There is no different if you install normal well cover or egress well cover. The reason to install is your children can be running around with your pets and they need to be safe that is why we need to cover our well.
Another things are to make your home look nice and tidy and more valuable by installing egress or normal window well. There are many local stores that offer many different types of well cover, glass well cover, metal well cover or acryl well cover. That can also be made of plastic or acryl. Just need to find the right size of your well can go to home department store then you will find exact suit of your well.
According to your well there are many size and type of well covers. The instruction of how to install window well is inside the packet so that we know how to fix. If your window well is standard size then you do not need to order custom window well. Just buy available window well cover and save your time. They already have security egress window escape system. It can also be locked incase of thief.
For my point of view it is all the same normal or egress window well that is just called to be egress according to the law.
