Use The Best Window Well Cover

Covering your egress window well with a superior cover is a great start to preventing excess water from getting where you don't want it. A SunWolf window well cover helps to protect your home from water in all forms. The slanted design of a SunWolf window well cover allows for the dispersion of rain and snow away from your home's foundation.

Avoid Water Saturation Near Your Foundation

Clean and utilize effective gutter systems, underground gutters, or install long above-ground gutters to help move rain and snow away from your foundation. This moisture would otherwise sit in, or near, your egress window well and foundation. When the ground near your foundation saturates, it is easier for water to make its way into your home. Whether it is a slow leak through a crack on the foundation wall or water coming through the actual egress window itself, any dispersion of water away from the foundation will assist in reaching a dry solution faster.

Fix Leaks Immediately

Investigate and fix leaks promptly! If you already know your home is susceptible to water damage, you should be making routine checks around your foundation for any opportunities to repair trouble spots. If your home's water issue grows to be too much of a problem, you may need to replace your entire egress window well to fix some of the grading issues around your foundation. Don't forget to cover the window well with a SunWolf cover when you are done.


If you have a Monarch window well or a Boman Kemp window well, SunWolf window well covers are the perfect fit. If you cannot find the correct size for your well cover and we will help you find a solution. Keep your family and home safe with a SunWolf, the best window well cover solution on the market.
