Window Well Solutions

Basement window wells are unique in their ability to bring natural light into your home. Egress window wells are especially important in your basement as they can transform the mood from that of a dungeon to a bright, welcome space in your home – as well as provide important means of exit in an emergency.

At Thrasher, our egress window wells are constructed from a single mold that is large enough to let light in, but is much more energy efficient and durable than older steel and aluminum basement windows.

Our durable well cover also adds a layer of protection against the elements by firmly sealing off the window well itself from the outside, while allowing light to pass through freely. Rated to support up to 500 pounds, our well covers add an element of safety as well as comfort.

Our specially designed window wells offer the appearance of fine masonry with the strength and durability of heavy-duty composite construction. The one-piece design eliminates the potential for leaks and features a built-in step. A clear, polycarbonate cover keeps your window well clear of rain and debris.
