This customer in Wethersfield, CT called us due to her bulkhead door leaking water into her basement.
Unfortunately, the homeowner had an oversized and old bulkhead door that was not properly sealed. During rainstorms, water leaked into the basement. Since it did not sit right and leaked, it had to be covered in a tarp, meaning it was not used. However, the homeowner still wanted to keep a bulkhead due to the extra means of egress it provided.
Luckily, Fogarty's Home Services was able to help this homeowner. We were able to install a beautiful new bulkhead door that was the correct size for the pre-existing concrete. We caulked around the edges and installed flashing behind the door to ensure a tight fit. Combining this with our other solutions ensures that this homeowner and her wife will have a safe, warm, and dry basement for years to come!
