So easy! We wanted to get covers for two of our basement wells. I went to the Mountainland Covers website to find out more information and saw how easy the process was, so I provided my info, picked out my options and paid the initial deposit, all online.

I was contacted shortly after that by email with a confirmation and approximate timeframe of when they would come out and make the templates. The best thing was that I didn’t have to wait around to be there in person. They came and went before I knew it.

About two weeks later, when the covers were ready, they contacted me about the install date and again came and went without me needing to be there. It was all so easy!

We just got the plain metal mesh covers and they look great! They fit well and they support my weight without flexing. We are very pleased with the company, their process and their products.
