Features & Benefits.

New Construction

When developing plans for a new home that includes a basement, it is important that the basement include egress to the outside. In many cases a walkout basement is not possible due to the contour of the property. In these cases a basement bulkhead door, or basement cellar door, is the right solution.

Water and air infiltration.

Basement bulkhead doors typically mount on stairways that lead into the basement. Basement bulkhead doors can be installed on pre-cast concrete stairs that bolt into the basement foundation. It is important that the contractor apply a water sealant between the bulkhead stairway and the basement foundation walls, prior to bolting the pre-cast concrete stairs to the foundation walls. The sealant should prevent water and air infiltration.

Pro Installations

The basement bulkhead doors mount on top of the pre-cast concrete stairway with bolts. Again, it is important that a water and airtight sealant be applied between the basement bulkhead doorframe and the pre-cast concrete stairway.

Custom Doors

Depending upon the size of the bulkhead door opening a custom door may need to be built. At a minimum, a doorframe will need to be installed around the inside perimeter of the concrete doorframe. Use pressure treated wood when installing the door frame, and again apply a sealant between the pressure treated wood and the concrete walls.
