All-s well that drains well

Full story: Newsday

I have a basement window that leaks. Every year, when the ground is frozen and we have a heavy rain, my basement gets a couple of inches of water from a certain window.

I had water flooding my basement coming through the window wells and adjusting the grade with wheelbarrows of dirt to pitch the water away from the house solved the problem. I made sure the pitch ran for about 8 feet and it was easier than digging all those drain pipes in.

I desperately need to buy window well covers for the windows in my basement. The ones that Home Depot and Lowe's sell are not big enough. Therefore, I need to get them custom made. I found a place in Pa. that does them but you have to send the measurements. I'm afraid that I won't measure correctly and then I'll have to eat them! Anyone out there know where in the Tri-state area NY NJ and/or Conn. I can find a place that does this???
Help!!

Liz:

Have someone handy or a local handyman that advertises 'no job too small' measure your window wells and contact me. I will ship the correct covers to you and the handyman will usually install them for between $30-$50 each. They are the most secure covers on the market and the handyman will custom fit them.
