4 Key Benefits of Oak Doors
JAS Timber proudly supply an unmatched collection of internal and external doors, designed to add both practical and aesthetic value to your property. Among the many timber materials from which doors are produced, one of the very best is oak: in this edition of the JAS Timber blog, we reveal four key benefits of installing oak doors.;
Oak has a beautifully rich appearance, boasting a unique and infinite array of colours, tones, patterns and textures. As a natural material, it complements almost any interior design scheme, immediately adding immediate character, warmth and elegance to a room. Simultaneously striking and subtle, oak has a visual charm all of its own.
Oak is a material renowned for its strength and sturdiness, both of which qualities make it extremely durable. The oldest door in the UK, located at Westminster Abbey and dating back at least 1,000 years, is made from oak panels and is still in use to this day. You can't get much more durable than that!
Though oak doors often cost more than those made from other materials, their aforementioned durability along with low maintenance requirements mean that they offer better cost-effectiveness over time. When seen as a long-term investment, which of course they are, oak doors are vastly preferable to doors manufactured from inferior types of timber.
With an extremely dense composition, oak is an impressive insulator. Keeping rooms cooler in summer and warmer in winter, an oak door can increase comfort levels indoors and can also result in considerable cost-savings when it comes to power bills. In addition to temperature control, oak doors also boast remarkable sound-insulation properties.
