Beauty & function. A basement egress window allows more natural light and fresh air while providing safe emergency egress.

RockWell Egress Window Wells

Building codes require that finished basement living areas have an emergency egress - an egress window large enough to allow safe exit out of the space in case of an emergency. A large window well with a step in it must also be used outside the egress window.

Here at Basement Systems USA, we are certified installers of RockWell egress window wells. In addition to providing a safe exit, our egress windows allow more natural light and fresh air into the basement to make the space feel larger and more inviting.

If you're planning on finishing your basement now or in the future, save yourself time and hassle by including egress window installation as part of your basement waterproofing project.

    Adding Extra Living Space with a TBF Finished Basement in Townsend, DE

    This was a fairly new home with a large, unfinished basement. Even though the basement was dry, the homeowner chose to invest in Total Basement Finishing (TBF) waterproof and mold resistant products. A good choice since as a home ages, the chances of having problems with moisture and mold increases. We installed TBF Everlast Wall System, Elite Plank flooring and a drop ceiling. In compliance with building codes, an egress window already existed, so we trimmed it out and made it pretty! 

    We upgraded the customer’s existing sump pump to a Zoeller M-53 with an UltraSump battery backup and installed a SaniDry XP Air System to keep the air fresh and dry.

    The customer wanted to finish the basement, but this basement needed some work done first.  First, we installed the WaterGuard waterproofing system.  Then we added CarbonArmor to repair the bowing foundation wall.  We also had to add an egress to meet code.  The we finished the basement with our TBF finishing system, which comes with a 50-year guarantee against water or mold damage.  We finished the job with some nice barn doors and our grey Thermal Plank flooring.

Protect your Upper Darby window from leaks with the WellDuct® system


The WellDuct® system is the ideal solution for leaking windows.

If you have a leak around your basement windows, your home could be exposed to water damage and mold problems. The WellDuct® system from Basement Systems USA is the ideal solution to leaky basement windows. This system is designed to funnel water into your drainage system and sump pump, keeping your basement dry.

The WellDuct® is installed by creating a small hole just below the window and installing a drainage pipe. This serves to collect water immediately as it enters, where it is funneled to your drainage system. The area is sealed with a polymer that creates a waterproof seal. Once installed, you won't need to worry about water damage from window leaks.
