Did You Know? The Bilco Company
Did You Know? The Bilco Company



Bilco is not a style of basement door. It’s a brand name, just like Kleenex is a brand of tissue. However, Bilco has had such successful branding that people now call their basement doors by the brand name instead.

The Bilco Company has served the building industry since 1926 and basement doors are the very first product we ever installed back when Jim Lett, Sr first started A.B.E. Doors and Windows in 1974. We find the Bilco Company to be a pioneer in the development of specialty access products. With their network of factory-trained representatives, they are always ready to keep us on top of our installs and assist us in making our customers happy.

It’s not just their customers that the Bilco Company cares about either. Bilco has been working to reduce their impact on the environment as well. They have an Environmental Policy in effect currently that works to use natural resources as efficiently as possible, minimize the generation of waste, and source their materials responsibly from environmentally conscious vendors and suppliers. They also have ongoing efforts to utilize recycled materials, use natural lighting in their manufacturing facilities, and replace welding equipment with more energy-efficient machines.

So, when you purchase a Bilco Brand basement door, you not only get a quality product, but you also are making an environmentally conscious decision not only for your home, but for the planet you call home. A.B.E. Doors and Windows is proud to partner with Bilco in bringing you the best we can offer.
