In response to your window well cover problem, I have the solution. CUSTOM MADE window well covers can be ordered through Dilworth Mfg. Co. They have been making them for over 35 years and they don't have those ugly supports. They'll make them to your well measurements. I've had them on my home for 25 years now and they are as good as when I first got them. WWW.WINDOWBUBBLE.COM is their website or phone 717-354-8956.
