Question DetailsAsked on 10/10/2015

We want to make our basement a walkout basement and how much it would cost?

We have three windows in our basement and need to cut one in the front yard and install a door instead for walkout purpose wondering how much it will cost?

Here are a prior similar question with response - of course, if any excavation is required to "daylight" it that increases your cost and probably changes your contractor type from Door to Remodel - General Contractor. Likely at least $500 with cheapest type door, more likely $1000 range for a normal 36" wide entrance door with maybe a very minimal shed roof overhang.

More if you have drainage issues that need to be addressed so the door does not become a water entry point to the basement.
