There is nothing like natural light to add cheer to a dark basement, whether it’s a finished family room or a utility space. However, windows often are the biggest source of unwanted moisture and leaks and should be one of your first areas of concern when you consider basement waterproofing.

When it comes to basement windows, we have seen them all. After more than 20 years of experience in basement waterproofing and window replacement, we know what types of windows will keep your basement dry and energy-efficient and which types of windows just do not work.
If you have any of these types of basement windows you should consider replacing them:
One of the most common types of windows are single-pane, steel casement windows with a steel sash frame that pivots outward to open. Part of the reason these basement windows are so common is they are inexpensive, so they not designed for dry, energy-efficient performance.
Here are just a few of the disadvantages of steel windows:

Old-fashioned basement wells are still around, and they can be some of the worst offenders when it comes to energy efficiency and maintaining a waterproof basement. The window wells are typically made of steel or aluminum and are installed as a half-oval that protects the basement window, but they also serve as traps for debris.
Here are just some disadvantages of old-fashioned basement window wells:
If your waterproofed basement will include bedroom or sleeping space, the building code requires a larger “egress” basement window to provide an emergency exit. Some homeowners elect to install this larger window just for the additional natural light it provides.
We can enlarge an existing basement window opening or cut a new opening for an egress window. We’ll also install our specially designed egress window well, featuring built-in steps and corrosion-proof composite construction.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, consumers can cut their energy bills by 30-40% simply by sealing their windows. Chances are that when it comes to energy efficiency your basement windows are the worst offenders. What wastes more energy and introduces more moisture and corrosive elements than outdated, corroded basement windows?
