Glass Block Windows
Glass block windows are a great replacement option for your aging basement windows. The benefits of glass block windows include:
- Thick break-resistant glass enhances home security.
- Attractive look will increase curb appeal from the outside.
- Greater sound damping reduces exterior noise.
- Increased energy efficiency over single pane basement windows.
- Optional vents to allow in fresh air.
- Transmit light but maintain privacy.
We offer glass block windows in all sizes to perfectly fit your current window opening.
Vinyl Basement Windows
As homes age, one of the primary enhancements are vinyl replacement windows. Unfortunately, the basement windows are often forgotten when the other windows are replaced. Vinyl replacement windows for your basement offer all the advantages of other vinyl replacement windows including:
- Increased home value.
- Lower heating and cooling costs.
- Maintenance free, no painting.
- Eliminate drafts in the basement.
- Easy open and close.
Window wells are small retaining walls made of metal, masonry or poly-carbonate installed around below-grade basement windows to hold earth away from the windows. A properly installed window well will protect your basement windows, reduce the likelihood that the window will leak, and allow more natural light to enter your basement.
In the past, most window wells were made of galvanized steel. Over time these steel window wells rust and decay allowing increasing amounts of water to build up near the basement window and frequently resulting in basement leaks. Most current window wells are made of durable poly-carbonate that will not rust and are designed to reflect additional light into your basement.
A properly installed window well provides a means for any water entering the window well area to drain away rather than build up around the window. To accomplish this, the window well requires a gravel bed underneath it and possibly a drain. We recommend that all non-egress window wells be kept covered with a clear window well cover. Not only will the cover eliminate falling rain from entering the window well, it will also provide additional security and protect the window. Window wells should also be cleaned out if any debris settles in them to prevent clogging of the gravel bed. We offer full service of window wells including window well installation, window well cover replacement, window well waterproofing, and window well cleaning. We are here to keep your basement dry!
