Solid oak doors, naturally, tend to be more expensive than their counterparts. After all, it’s necessary to wait for the trees to grow to harvest them sustainably. There’s a way of offsetting this problem, however, and that’s through the creation of engineered doors, which are comprised by a core of many varied materials, packaged inside a veneer of high-quality oak.
This allows the door to maintain the attractive aesthetic qualities of oak while still being affordable. This design provides another advantage, particularly for exterior doors: it helps to eliminate warping. This effect occurs when the fibres of a piece of timber expand and contract in response to changes in local climate. Over time, this effect can cause the door to change shape – and if it’s an external door, this can lead to draughts forming. An engineered door counteracts this effect – each piece of timber is tethered to its neighbour, and so is better able to hold its shape over time.
Oak is a famously attractive and durable timber, and it’s sure to look the part outside your home. Take a look at the external folding sliding doors doors we have to offer, and you’re sure to find something that matches your preferences!
