Our White Oak doors are produced to an extremely high specification from component parts carefully chosen to accommodate the challenges laid down by the UK climate. The laminated timber stiles and rails offer stability against bowing and twisting and the stiles are edged with solid 18mm thick oak lippings. Raised mouldings (where fitted) and beads are of solid white oak. A reminder as with all timber products manufactured for external use, performance is relient on both initial and ongoing maintenance. If a small area of the product is untreated or if the exterior seal becomes cracked, moisture will penetrate (or escape in summer months!) causing the door to expand or contract at an abnormal rate. This is the most common reason for a door to fail.
