Re: Flattening window well flanges


I would get some lengths of steel angle-iron and fasten that to the wall, and then at every second or third hump that touches the angle-iron, put in a nut and bolt. Caulk on the dirt-side if you can get at it.

They are galvanized and that will pop off when metal is worked and then it will rust sooner.
