basement bulkhead doors??

It looks like im going to have to replace some basement bulkhead doors this summer. They were installed in the early 90's and rust has taken over.. So when new, the installers popped down some 2x lumber on the block, and bolted the doors down... it did last 27 years, but always looked unfinished... so doing some searching I see them installed on wood like mine were, direct to the blocks, cemented in, and a combo of wood, and steel plates... Seems like all ways are correct....yet wrong at the same time. Anyone install some? what ways have you done it?? Im leaning towards replacing the boards, cover with steel foundation plates, and bolting down... seems to look the most finished....

Re: basement bulkhead doors??

Would you be able to cover the wood with fascia before bolting the doors down?

that's pretty much what the foundation plates are. Just thicker, and steel. Not sure normal Fascia stock would work because the the pressure treated boards, and steel door assy causing all kinds of reactions.
