Note the diagram of a typical window well drainage system. This is a builders grade drain system. The problem is the pipes over time get clogged and that is one main reason water seeps into your basement from the window and creates Hydrostatic pressure which then causes cracks in or around your window.
First we clean the concrete wall then epoxy the cracks. Secondly we add Dimple Board which allows water to footing drain below the foundation wall. Third step is to add clean gravel and geo fabric (block the dirt) . The gravel relieves any hydrostatic pressure with the Absolute Sure Flow System.
I can not stress how important it is to maintain your grade around your house. The source of foundation damages and your basement water leaks are caused by improper drainage in your yard. Downspouts need to be either connected underground and directed away from your house, or simply by extensions. Go to your landscaping supply store and have them deliver their dense top soil to add around your foundation walls, compact it and create a slope away from your foundation . Clean your gutters twice to three times a year. Increase the size of your gutters to 6". You would be surprised how inexpensive any or all of these items cost compared to repairing cracked, bowing, settling foundation walls. In addition to personal property damage.
