Window Well Covers

charlieboringJuly 30, 2013

I am trying to build or buy window well covers that last for a longer period than those normally available through HD and others. The size and shape are an issue. The wells are semi-circular and concrete/rock bordered as opposed to metal, since they are set in a concrete/rock-covered patio. The approximate sizes are 52 inches across at the wall; 22.5 inches radius of the semicircle and 12 inches high at the wall. Since I cannot find a suitable cover to buy, i am cosidering building them with wooden frames and plexiglass covers. I am attaching my ideas (which appear difficult to cut the pieces) in the hope that someone can offer suggestions.

Most everything out there is going to be intended for egress and therefore much deeper projection from the building.

I don't know of anything to recommended to you to meet those shape criteria as pictured.

Rockwell does make a pretty well but it is an egress compliant design.

windowsonwashington. Can you suggest the best material to use to make the semi-circular frame with a 6 to 1 incline on which I can mount the plexiglass?

At that point, you might be best suited to do it out of some brick or block.
