About Oak Wood
Oak is a common choice of timber for doors and windows, particularly in period homes which normally have timber sash or casement windows elsewhere. Naturally stunning, it offers a ‘friendlier’ feel than aluminium or uPVC, and can also be coated in any colour you desire.
Why Oak Wood is so Popular
Here are a few reasons why oak is a favourite choice of wood with many:
- Sturdy. Oak bifold doors have a solid frame and are hard-wearing and durable doors. So, while you may fork out a little bit more than lower-priced alternatives, you’ll certainly get your investment back, for many years.
- Good Insulation. Oak is a dense material making it tremendously energy efficient. Oak doors help to shut in heat during the colder weather, but also work well during the warmer summer months, as they enable your home to get cooler.
- Complements Home Décor. An all-rounder, oak folding doors really add some style to your home décor, and enhance the choice of floor, whether it be tiled, wooden or carpeted. Oak goes with virtually any floor type and is the perfect choice internally or externally. So if you’re thinking of installing interior oak bifold doors, you will make a beautiful choice.
- Noise Cancelling. Oak doors, particularly solid oak bifold doors, create a fantastic noise barrier when shut. This is especially valuable for those living on busy streets or even near the road, or anyone with noisy children. They also work well in office buildings thanks to the acoustic nature of oak.
