Question

"roof" for basement door well


Help! My daughter's basement gets water with big rains. One of the problems is that the drain in the door well (about half below grade) feeds into the sump pump. The rain water just pours down the basment stairs. We will be stopping the water at the top of the stairs, but would like to build a "roof" over the stairway- possibly one with a hinge that could be secured to the house when not in use. Any ideas or plans??

Try looking at Bilco doors.
