In this example, the customer had a rot issue with her basement door. The wooden door, brick molding and threshold had fairly severe damage. We replaced with a much more weather resistant steel door, added proper flashing above the door and replaced the threshold with an aluminum model. While we were at it, a new oiled bronze lock set was installed and a fresh coat of paint was applied, resulting in a much more functional and pleasing aesthetic.
And if you noticed the door bell removed from the after picture, who needs a door bell on your basement door anyway?
