Finish & Optional Powder-Coating
Note: Powder-coating finish is only available on sizes B, C, and extension panels. The standard Basement Door in all sizes has baked-on Shermin Williams primer providing a durable base for painting. If you’re looking to get your Basement Door powder-coated, you can add on an optional polyester powder-coat in 1 of 4 colors: White, Light Gray, Sandstone and Brick. Powder-coating offers a superior finish than conventional paint and the polyester resin provides a durable, weather-resistant coating. Cured at high temperatures than most wet coatings, the result is a tougher and chip-resistant coating, providing both a decorative and protective finish.
Extension Panels (Optional)
Extend the entire length of your basement door using our extension pieces. These extensions are only available for Size C doors. Extensions for Size C also come in an optional Powder-coat finish to match your main door perfectly. Two or more extensions can be used back to back to accommodate a longer areaway length.
