WOODEN FRONT DOORS
Wooden front doors are our passion our reason to get up in the morning. It is our pleasure to make a front door and the frame, add all the locks hinges etc, to see it open and close smoothly still gives us a sense of deep satisfaction and pride in what we do. We have been making and supplying wooden front doors for more years than we care to mention and much more to come. So we thought we would offer you the benefit.
OAK FRONT DOORS
European oak  [ scientific name quercus robus ] and I can tell you well named as we can ‘cuss’ this timber on occasions when things are going wrong ]
But we still love it, eastern euro oak from Poland, Croatia, Ukraine very cold climate countries these Oaks tend to be very straight grained and show a colour spec of a silver nature in the wood grain.
Whereas French and German oak is clean with a straw colour, I often refer to it being of a blonde colour as customers often ask the difference between hardwood/mahogany, and white oak. Both the materials are excellent for making front doors and windows. English oak tends to be asked for very very occasionally, I believe it to be a very descriptive appearance with more of a floral flare to the growth of the grain.
OAK FRONT DOOR AND FRAME
The Front Door Shop carefully hand pick our wood materials from our timber supplier. I am sure the owner of the timber yard ‘cuss’ me on occasions as we are particular with our selection of oak timber boards. As they all come in random width boards, these need to be checked for shakes, Knots, defects and also sap wood this is at a cost of our time and labour. But it does give pay back to ourselves in the workshop.
We know the wood will cut well, look well, and give us the desired look for the job, or your job really as it’s your door we could be making.
 
BESPOKE FRONT DOORS
We try to put the front door together in a basic design as this will hold all the sections straight as they can move when cut and give the occasional bow but with the correct procedure, it all pulls together giving a good appearance for the entrance door you want for your home.
Then all hands as the door is measured for the glass to be made and installed all hinges locks letter plates to be fitted, then put in the door frame. We then dismantled everything for stain and polishing.[ Please note we will not paint finish this has to be done by others ]
