This job in Gaithersburg, Maryland we did we used a white Boman N Kemp corrugated steel brilliant white window well. The window well itself is a marine grade galvanize steel just like they use in ships so it will never rust. We installed an ALUPLAST European tilt and turn window there was 30 inches wide and 60 inches long easily one of our favorite and most requested sizes. This window size makes it very easy to get in and out of the window in case of an emergency because of the height off the floor is sill is. We dug to the footing, but found no good drain tile so we had to add a primary drain system. In this case we use in external sump pump system the drafts at the footing level, not to allow any water to build up past the top of the footing before it is injected to the surface through a backflow prevention valve under the bottom of the well and up to grade. In this case the basement was unfinished so we did not add any trim or finish work inside. The homeowner was going to use this room to create a new bedroom in the basement that is safe and legal and full of vibrant natural light. This is the first step in the process to making the basement. Welcoming, safe, and usable. We pride ourselves in making basements safe, not cutting corners in any project and the quality of craftsmanship at every corner.
