About Our Solid Oak Doors
Why choose a Solid Oak Door?
Solid oak interior doors have been the choice of the door throughout the country for years, and have a range of benefits.
- Durability - Oak is a durable and long-lasting material, which means a solid oak internal door also carries these properties. Solid oak doors are incredible hard-wearing, lasting for years, which is often not the case with other alternatives.
- Insulating - Solid oak doors are a great source of insulation. Instead of hollow core or more modern doors, which can be less efficient at reducing heat loss, solid oak doors prevent heat from leaving a room, meaning less energy is required to heat it. Additionally, solid oak doors work as an acoustic insulator, meaningless noise passes through. This can be incredibly useful in kitchens and living rooms, and the hallway, preventing sound from passing through the rest of the house and disturbing others.
- Aesthetics - A solid oak door can provide the perfect finish to a more traditional or period property, maintaining the classic style and replicating what would have been used in the past, without needing to compromise. Matching with traditional wooden flooring, chairs, tables and other period furnishings in your home, solid oak doors help you step back in time.
Do Solid Oak Doors need treating?
Interior Oak veneer doors can be treated with either a wax, oil or varnish. Using a clear door oil or varnish will enhance the natural grain and character of the wood, they will also slightly darken the wood to give it an almost damp-like appearance.
