Question DetailsAsked on 11/20/2014

what kind of contractor can remove and replace a window well

At a home I am purchasing in Longmont, CO one of the many window wells has come loose from it's original position and is allowing dirt and gravel to work its way through and into the well. It is a typical corrugated metal well semicircle about six feet wide at iits circumference. I will like to have it done in the spring..
In another well the escape window is coming apart and needs replacement. can you suggest a contractor?

Basically, as a stand-alone job, a small one-man general contractor or a handyman would be your Search the List category - a conventional window installer can certainly do the window but I don't know about the well - some might, others not.


When having the well reinstalled, remember sealing at the wall, and also at the concrete base pad if it has one - peel and stick bitumastic sealing strip (in the concrete joint filler materials area) works best. Smeared-on bitumastic sealant out of a can will work too but looks ugly if it gets out of hand so if they can't find the strip at their normal place, caulk tube bitumastic would be my recommendation. Regular caulk does not last well in that environment.
