Do you need the foundation under your Bulkhead to be raised?

Installing basement doors Red doors

In many cases, Bulkheads are installed below the grade of your soil. In these situations, the Bulkheads should be raised with a concrete foundation before your new Bulkhead is installed.

This will keep water from leaking into your basement.

Need your Bulkhead painted?


It's important to paint your Bulkhead with two coats of rustoleum before it gets old and rusty.
