I'm looking to protect some wooden exterior basement window casing so that I don't have to re-paint it so regularly.
I've seen window well covers like so:
...which could be useful except that this particular window is right next to a sidewalk that I walk by and drag garbage cans on frequently, so something that sticks out more than 6" or so from the wall will be an obstruction.
I searched for low profile window well covers, and I've found things like:
...which is low-profile in the wrong direction (low to the ground).
What is an easy solution that will not stick out far from the wall?
