Benefits of Oak Doors

Choosing internal or external doors for the home can be a daunting process. There are so many different designs and materials to choose from and the selection you make can add value to your home, increase security and so much more.

One of the top favourites is oak doors. These are durable products that are made from solid wood, rather than the hollow options available on the market. Wood is a very strong and durable materials that will last for many years. In many instances when buying solid wood oak doors, you will find the doors will still be in the home or office when you move out and will still be working as good as they did when you first purchased them.

Visual appeal is the other benefit that these doors provide. Solid oak doors look fantastic in any room in the home and blend into any style of home with ease. They give an expensive finish to a room, yet remain relatively affordable in price.

When choosing doors for the home it’s understandable you don’t want to break the bank. At the same time if you want the strength, lifespan and quality that oak doors provide, then paying slightly more can provide you with years of use and enjoyment. For what these products offer to the home environment, they are considered relatively affordable. Yet they are more expensive than veneer or hollow doors, which won’t offer you the same long list of benefits.

The oak doors come in a wide range of styles for you to choose from. There are plain designs, patterned designs, external and internal options and even bespoke solutions. Bespoke doors are ideal if you have custom built your home and are struggling to find regular sizes to fit your openings.

You will find that one of the leading benefits of oak doors is the insulation that they provide. Whether you use them for internal or external openings, these doors offer outstanding energy efficiency. This can help reduce heating costs during the winter and electricity costs during the summer months and can be a welcome addition to any home. Due to this, they can also help increase the value of your home should you ever decide to sell.

Oak doors can also offer welcome noise reduction within the home. When you have a busy family home having the ability to close the door to your bedroom and block out some of the noise is always a welcome relief. Having solid oak doors enables you to achieve this, especially when you have noisy teens in the home that enjoy playing their favourite music on full blast and making it difficult for others in the home to hear themselves think.

Interestingly, these also provide good fire resistance. Veneer and hollow doors tend to burn very quickly in the event of a fire. But solid doors will provide some resistance. They will burn eventually, but most of these products are coated in a fire resistant coating which gives the family more than enough time to get out of the house. By closing the door you can reduce the risk of the fire spreading to other sections of the home.

When it comes to maintenance, you will be pleased to know that oak doors don’t require hours of weekly maintenance. In fact if you care for the doors properly and keep an eye on them, maintenance will be very limited.

These doors don’t chip or peel and while you will need to sand and varnish them every few years, they can provide you with years of use and enjoyment without heavy annual maintenance.
