Oak Exterior Doors For Sale

Hardwood External Doors For Sale
Our external timber hardwood doors have an inside core made up of solid hardwood blocks, jointed with mortice and tenon or dowelled depending on the model. With their robust and solid look, hardwood entrance doors make a strong first impression for any visitors.
Again, they are overlaid with A-grade hardwood veneers. You can also choose from our glazed exterior door models which allow extra light into darker hallways.
Why Are Traditional Single Timber Doors Sometimes Not The Best Fit?
In comparison to traditional single timber doors, engineered external doors have a number of great benefits. Traditional timber doors will often warp, move, expand and contract in the weather.
External doors are particularly susceptible to having one internal warm face and another external cold face. The jointed single members will pull away from each other.
What Are The Benefits Of An Engineered External Door?
Engineered doors are made up of various constituent parts bound together under extreme heat. This ‘core’ is then covered in high grade veneer.
In this way the components of the door hold together to form a solid body which resists movement, warping and expansion.
What Is The Installation Process?
Always employ a qualified joiner to install your new door. We recommend four hinges for external doors and good solid locking mechanisms.
Also, a timber door should be hung in a sound fitting, hardwood, external grade frame. Your external door becomes immediately exposed to UV rays and the weather from the moment it is hung.
How Can You Keep Your External Front Doors In The Best Condition?
All external doors in the UK need good quality weather-proof paints or treatments to preserve them through the extremes of the British climate.
Please see our help and advice section for further advice on this important element.
Of course, if you choose a GRP door there’ll be no painting and next to no maintenance.
