I think it was an unhappy day for horse summer when she felt through the basement window well covers. She felt off from her back side all the way through to the basement. Luckily she was not really hurt by breaking the glass window well covers.
It was about 9 O`clock in the morning when she fall through the front side of well cover in the house. It was made of glass and it couldnot stand 1100 lb horse weight. Now we need to think about how to protect heavy weight animal falling from the basement well cover. To rescue the house, it takes more than 4 hours for the whole Elbert Country homewoner offer staffs and Rattlesnake Fire Protection workers. Elbert Country Roand Bridge Department were there to help with the crews.

So it was lots of work when this happen, it wourld be better choice to install quality basement window well covers that can protect heavy weight horse summer. To get the horse out of the basement they need to dig down the well so that she can get out the same way back.
Just hearing the new and video on TV about the happening, installing the right quality frame with glass well cover is the solutiong, metal frame will protect the heavy weight and glass cover will give enough light. But need to make sure all are correctly installed so that horse or other animals cannot fall and break into it. That just point me how important to use the right well covers to keep this kind of occation away. This is awful that all the people have to work till midnight to repare the well can cover up safely. Avoid this kind of thing by putting quality basement well cover in your well.

Even if the rainning season is over, it is still rainning heavily. If there are thunderstorms and rain showers everywhere, then the soil will not get dry by spring sun. That is why we have problems for the well cover. The basement windows should carry light and fresh air to the basement, but this season it is hard because of bad weather. There can be other reason why the well cover grid is blocked, such as small animals, frogs, toads and mice. Also leaves, grass clippings, dirt and sand that can keep the fresh air and sunlight away.
I think our basement window well cover should always be kept dry. The natural light will come through the grid slot, but it should also be air and light permeable, to allow enough fresh air through the window. No matter what size the well cover you have, there is every conceivable custom window well covers available. This is distinguished from the quality of customer service, the customer choose right window well covers.
To get the custom cover, it is not normally very long. The well cover grating can be assembled very easy to install. Yesterday I just saw on TV about how to renovate the basement and showing example of hobby room, personal bar and sport gym in the basement.
Some also keep as a club that can celebrate the family party. So that is sure animals and dirt will never find in the basemnent. The advantage of installing special well cover is that there is no air circualtion problem inside. It looks modern and no burglar can come in as you can lock it. This accessory allows the grid of the interior and the lock, without blocking the possible escape rote. So that all your things are safe. I am sure it is the best time to replace the basement well cover to make ready for spring.

It was raining heavily yesterday unexpectedly there was water leaking from the frame of the basement well. The glass window cover was not good enough to protect the heavy rain. Even in Winter I always have problem with water from melting snow. So I have to find the good quality basement well cover now. I need the right basement window well covers that protects rain or snow water and insulates well for home. Even heavy snow or debris it can resist bad weather. This time I am thinking to buy custom cover which can also supply for water pipe, wires that already have in basement window. This will meet the important safety codes like Egress windows. Readymade or standard basement well covers may not be strong enough or protective and cannot have safety reason.

Basement window well covers and egress well covers come in any different shapes, size and design. Normal covers can be found in normal home stores and usually keep only standard sized covers, and many will break under heavy rain or snow. That was why I decided to buy custom basement window cover that will fit for my metal well frame. I find that they have 3 years guarantee to fit with weather. I provide natural sun light and provide room temperatures in the basement.

According to the rule I have to use egress well covers that must have exact guidelines. It needs to be in International Building Code requirement. Any basement room is use for sleeping than must have opening of up to 5.7 square feet for emergency escape. It is a bit complicated to think about covering of the window well now. It is necessary to drain the window well sometimes to the foundation drains or I need to have them to connect with a stone in the drain. It is extremely valuable to fix it before installing the well. But I am lucky to finish it at the end by ordering the custom well covers that protect all unnecessary disturbances.
