ASSEMBLING THE MODERN SQUARE WINDOW WELL
When you receive the Modern Square Window Well, ensure you have all pieces before proceeding with assembly. You will have the front panel, two side panels, and and package of assembly hardware. Always handle the panels with caution as edges may be sharp.
Lay out your panels, ensuring that you correctly allocate left and right panels (see video below). Take one side panel and align the holes on the top, bottom, and inside to the corresponding holes in the front panel, ensuring that the panels are relatively square. Insert the bolts into the side and bottom holes and loosely secure with the nuts.
If your window well consists of only one 12” high section, then you can go ahead and add the top bolts and secure with the nuts. If you have another section to add on top, assemble it using the same procedure outlined above. Tighten all hardware before proceeding to next step.
Once the entire window well is assembled. Lag it to the wall in the appropriate location using the lag holes drilled in the back tabs of the side panels.
A NOTE ABOUT PROPER INSTALLATION
For small window wells (less than 50″ width), place the well 4″ below the window opening to allow for 4″ of drainage stone. Windows larger than 50″ place the well 4″ below the window opening to allow for 4″ of drainage stone ALONG with 12″ of drainage stone behind the window well so the backfill material doesn’t settle against the well. Any failure to install wells accordingly will result in a void of warranty.
