Basement Doors

basement-doors from west michigan glass blockWMGB proudly installs basement doors from Bilco. Bilco manufactures a few different types of basement doors that we at WMGB have trusted for years.

Bilco Classic Series – Steel Basement Doors

This type of Bilco door is now offered with a factory-applied polyester powder coat finish. Go ahead and check out their site for specific details!  These doors are covered in a heavy-duty coating that is meant to resist anything weather can throw at it. Additionally, Bilco’s classic series steel door coating is cured at a higher temperature than other coatings, which makes it especially chip-resistant. The Classic series door is offered in four colors (white, light gray, sandstone, and brick) and in all standard door sizes.

Ultra Series – Polyethylene Construction

The Ultra Series from Bilco offers safe access to your basement with complete code-compliance. They’re exceptionally easy to operate and require no upkeep. These polyethylene constructed doors won’t rust or rot, and the textures (simulated wood or driftwood color) match most home exteriors and won’t need to be painted.

A unique advantage to the Ultra series is that they have an interchangeable side panel insert that allows light or more ventilation into the basement easily. Take a look here.

PermEntry Precast Concrete Basement Entrance

bilco-basement-doors from west michigan glass blockPermEntry is by and large, the quickest and most economical way to ensure safe and immediate access to your basement. Ideally, PermEntry entrances are installed in new home construction. Inside, Bilco PermEntry doors have a precast concrete stairwell and a bilco basement door (pictured).

The stairwell is precast in one piece, and is of exceptionally high quality manufacturing. It is thoroughly vibrated for maximum density, and adheres to rigid specifications to ensure safe and fast emergency egress access for your basement.

The Bilco basement door is either made of heavy gauge steel construction (classic series) or polyethylene (ultra series) with no maintenance. It is weather-resistant and has a side bolt locking mechanism for added safety.
