Vinyl window wells are maintenance-free and energy efficient. The cost of installing a vinyl window well is higher than a traditional window well, but the cost is reduced over the lifetime of the window by the savings incurred.
Mold, mildew and rust can cause problems for ground-level window wells that are often exposed to high levels of moisture. Vinyl window wells effectively prevent these problems. Cleaning the vinyl window wells with soap and water removes mold and mildew, and the noncorrosive properties of the vinyl keep rust at bay.
Vinyl windows and window wells seal out moisture and create a moisture and sound proof barrier for the home. The benefits derived from this barrier enhance the quality of living in ground floor structures, allowing the homeowner to reap the benefits of additional living space.
Vinyl window wells are available in a variety of color options to complement the home's exterior. Installation of new vinyl windows and window wells provides up to a 70 percent return on the home owner's investment, making them a popular home improvement project for home owners wanting to recoup their money when selling the home. The price of vinyl windows and window wells varies depending upon the complexity of the installation.
