What is a Bulkhead Door?

A bulkhead door is a large door that is installed in a basement to act as a bulkhead, which is traditionally a wall used to keep water from one section of a ship or boat to another. The door is usually near the floor of the basement and is installed in place of a wall.

Some bulkhead doors will have a window installed in them and the door itself can double as a window. The reason bulkhead doors are used is that they are an effective way to prevent water from entering the basement and help to separate different sections of the basement. Bulkhead doors can also be used as an emergency exit in case a person is trapped in the basement during a flood.

Do I Need Bulkhead Stairs?

Most homeowners want to make decisions for their home that will increase its value and make it more attractive – especially if they’re planning on selling it in the future. Installing bulkhead precast concrete stairs is one way to make your basement stairs more accessible, and they are a great way to achieve this while also adding to your home’s curb appeal.

The first step in installing bulkhead stairs is to measure the opening to your basement so we can get an accurate size for the door and stairs. Once we have the measurements, we’ll work with you to choose the style of bulkhead and stairs that you want. One of the options Rescon can provide to add accessibility to your basement is precast concrete stairs and entryways. These steps are durable and can add safety and aesthetic appeal to your home.

We understand that every basement and its owner are unique, which is why we approach every project individually—ensuring that our customers are getting exactly what they want every time.

Benefits of an Egress Window

Basements are often the most underutilized areas of a home. However, they can also be used as living spaces and are subject to strict fire code regulations. An egress window installation is important to ensure basement functionality. An egress window is a vital element of a basement’s emergency escape route.

An egress window is a window that is large enough to allow a person to escape if they ever needed to. Egress windows are used in basements because they are often the only emergency exit. Because egress windows are so important, it is imperative that they are installed by a professional to ensure that they meet code standards.

“I have been a Rescon customer for 3 years. From day one they have been great. From the initial call, to the friendly staff, to the clean and efficient work, everything is top motch. Typically, I have only needed them for yearly maintenance, but recently we had a major storm and my pump stopped running. I contacted them through their website, recieved a call shortly after, and an after-hours tech was dispatched. Their prompt follow up saved me from a flooded basement and the destruction of personal property. Short answer, these guys are great!”
