Measuring & Choosing the correct cover for your window well.
How to choose the correct cover
Begin by measuring the width (along the house) and then the projection (out from the house) of the window well opening. DO NOT be concerned with the shape at this point. Choose a window well cover large enough to cover the entire opening of your window well plus include enough for a 1" lip overhang around the perimeter of the window well. Browse the Covers category found in the Products tab at the top of the page and choose a cover from our 21 in stock sizes that are ready for next day shipping. Choosing the correct size window well cover will allow you to trim your cover to the profile of your window well (if needed) giving you a perfectly fitted window well cover. To quickly find the correct window well cover, also use our Window Well Cover CALCULATOR found to the left. The calculator will bring you to the recommended in stock window well cover that will fit your window well. If a recommended in stock cover does not appear, please Contact Us at 877-467-2122.
In the case you would like an exact fitting window well cover, you will have to send us a template of your window well, and we will build your custom cover for you. Read how to make an exact window well template below.
Creating an exact template
First, take a large sheet of cardboard and lay it over your window well. Next use a hammer to indent the edge of your window well onto the cardboard. Now flip the cardboard over and use a marker to trace the indent that your window well made on the cardboard. Lastly, mail us the sheet of cardboard to the address below.
