Window well covers

Does anyone have any recommendations for a place that sells and installs polycarbonate window well covers (not the cheap plastic ones)?

Racoons are using a window well as a toilet and I want to put a stop to that.

I screwed metal mesh with L brackets and covered on top with plastic covers from HD (they are not cheap BTW)

They're a bit pricey, but should last way longer than those cheap plastic ones which rot away in a few years.
This is what i wanted to suggest, saw them in store years ago, have a pic somewhere in the phone.

In the end OP can use plywood if its just for raccoons, even at todays high prices its cheaper than this and should do until the racoons move on.
But this is much more permanent and less utilitarian.
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburgers eat people

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I think I'm going to go with the ones HarpreetB99405 suggests.

@HarpreetB99405, for the install, can they be angles so than rain flows away from the house or can they only be installed flat?

I think by default they can only be installed flat. You can in a way install them at some angle by using a tapered wood shim behind the provided aluminium angle.
