When shopping around for internal oak doors it is tempting to head straight down to your nearest large chain store to see what doors they have in stock and whether any doors would be suitable for your home. The main reason for this is down to cost and a lack of other options. Most people tend to think of these national retailers as their only option and a hassle free route to getting the oak door or doors they require. The truth, however, is that by choosing to buy from one of these larger shops as opposed to using a local craftsman is that quality and finish may be compromised. This is due to the mass production that is undertaken by the suppliers to these stores in order to meet the order demands placed upon them. Internal oak doors should be a quality, long-lasting item that has been given lots of attention to detail and not simply rolled off a production line as is often the case.
There are many local wood joinery (http://www.devonheritagejoinery.co.uk/
) companies throughout the UK which are able to offer a much higher standard of service and deliver quality internal oak doors at competitive prices. By using a local joinery business you can take expert advice from the start of your project to the end and make sure that the doors you purchase are perfect for the space they will fit. If you are looking for specific grain markings for your internal doors then contacting a local company is the only way to find what you want. Larger retailers tend to import their timber in huge quantities before distributing it throughout their network of stores without the same quality control that local craftsman use for their own oak doors.
As nearly all local joinery businesses make most of their oak doors to order you will have a much greater level of control on how your door will look. With a choice of wood including light oak, dark oak and natural oak as well as other customisable options such as ornamental hinges and different styles of handles to choose from you will not just be buying a generic internal door but will be getting a fully bespoke door designed to suit your home and decor. Also, any odd shaped spaces will be no trouble for a skilled craftsman meaning that no matter what size of internal door you require they will be able to offer a solution with the addition of architraves, skirting’s and door linings all made to suit.
So whether you are fitting internal doors to a large development, an entire house or just need a single oak door to replace an old one, don’t just jump in the car and head to your nearest DIY superstore. Instead, go online and search for your nearest local joinery company (http://www.devonheritagejoinery.co.uk/)
and enquire how they can help. You’ll be surprised just how helpful they can be and rest assure you will be getting only the very best internal oak doors for your project.Photo:
