Basement Door Ideas

Save

Houses feature a variety of basement entry door options depending on the function of the door. Some basements may be accessible only from the interior, in which case there is much flexibility on the type of door selected. Other basements have only exterior access and require a much more secure door that is weatherproof and low maintenance.

Bilco Ultra Series and Sloped Wall Exterior Doors

  • Bilco is a specialty access company that has serviced the construction industry for more than 75 years. Bilco, now a popular manufacturer of basement doors, features the Ultra Series doors made from high-density polyethylene providing increased safety and weather-tight performance. The Ultra Series Door, an exterior hatch-like entry door, is designed to be rust and rot proof. Doors can come with an interchangeable side panel insert to allow you to easily add light or ventilation to the basement area.

    Consider the Classic Series Sloped Wall Doors from Bilco if your basement doors currently are set onto brick, stone, block or concrete foundations which rise past stairs to form an incline on either side of the stairwell above the ground. These Sloped Wall Doors would use a flat piece of metal or polyethylene laid over the slanted frame, with doors in them.

ReliaBilt Solid Wood Pre-hung Door

  • If you only have access to your basement through an interior entrance, replace your current basement door with a door that is solid, pre-hung and easy to customize. The ReliaBilt Solid Wood Prehung Door can be painted in any color to match the space where it will be installed. Choose the same size door as your current door or you will need the help of a professional contractor to redo the framing.

Therma-Tru Exterior Traditions Steel Door

  • For basements with an exterior walk through door, try a secure access door like the Therma-Tru Exterior Steel Door. Therma-Tru's Traditions doors are are available in five paint ready designs, with thick steel and a polyurethane foam core to help with energy efficiency. Doors in this product line feature a solid wood lock block for secure mounting of hardware.
