If you’re looking for external front and back doors for your home, then towards the top of your list of suitable materials will probably be oak. Oak is a timber which needs no introduction; it’s among the most aesthetically pleasing woods, which might explain why it’s been used in and around the home for centuries. Oak doors work brilliantly in just about every setting: they look great, they insulate fantastically and they’re tough as nails. Small wonder, then, that they’re proven so popular with our customers over the years. Here at Doors & More, we sell both unfinished and pre-finished oak doors in a variety of styles including solid and glazed as well as more intricate designs and super-sleek contemporary ones. Whatever you design preference, we’re sure that we’ll have something to suit your tastes. Why not have a browse through our selection of oak external doors and see if anything takes your fancy.
Oak is an excellent choice not only for aesthetic reasons, but for functional ones, too. It’s solid and sturdy, and makes an excellent insulator of both sound and heat. The material will keep heat locked in during winter while letting it pass through during the summer. Since energy-efficiency is especially important when it comes to external doors, this is a consideration which should on no account be overlooked!
Here at Doors & More, we sell both unfinished and pre-finished oak doors. Our pre-finished external oak doors are delivered to you ready to hang, with no further work required. For those looking for a convenient and attractive solution that’ll present minimal hassle, a finished door is the ideal solution. For those who struggle to find doors to match their existing decor, then our range of unfinished oak doors might just be the answer.
These doors require a little extra work before they’re ready to hang. Like any timber door, an oak door can be painted or finished in just about any way you like. A coat of gloss paint will help to protect the door against the elements while colouring it just about any way you’d like. If you’d prefer a natural finish, then a layer or two of varnish will help to bring out the inherent beauty of the underlying oak.
For those of you who are concerned about the environment, you’ll be pleased to know that we take sustainability very seriously. Our oak doors are certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council, so you can ensure that the timber has been responsibly and sustainably sourced.
