Crawlspace Cover

Posted by art_s (My Page) on

Hi all,

Does anyone know of a product that can cover a crawlspace well? I have been looking around the web and only a couple of things come up. My crawlspace is mostly below grade and has a solid door on it. The well is about 3 feet deep and each fall it fills up with leaves and there is a big mess to clean up. In the winter it fill with snow and that is even a bigger mess. I have used some plywood sheeting but it doesn't weather well and is heavy and because part of the opening is above grade stuff gets in around the plywood sheet.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm not sure I'm visualizing the situation, but what about window well covers, which are typically clear plastic formed to fit over such things? Or build such an item with 2x4s and some plexiglass.
