Why Does This Happen?
There are a few reasons why a window well can leak. It may not have been built adequately in the first place. Bad workmanship could mean that the well is not properly fastened to the wall, or has not got the right sort of drainage to stop water from pooling.
Your window well may also have got damaged over time, or the drains could be badly clogged. This can cause water to gather in the well, defeating its purpose. When water pools like this, it can seep in through the walls, the window frame, or through the window itself.
This can lead to damp problems in your basement, especially around the affected area.
