What are Oak External Doors
Oak is always a popular choice when it comes to external door materials, for many reasons. It's hardwearing so can withstand the elements. It's sturdy, for optimum security. It's a great insulator, so helps keep heat inside where it belongs. And it's also incredibly beautiful to look at.
Our Oak External Doors Range
Vibrant Doors offer quality solid wood front doors and oak veneer options. We also have many double and triple glazed patterns in our oak door range, including leaded, frosted, bevelled or zinc double glazing, with some great coloured glass doors available too. We offer all our solid oak doors and oak veneer doors with a range of glass sidelights and vestibule frames so you can create that perfect oak front entrance door.
Oak Warmer Doors
We also offer external oak warmer doors, ideal for both front door and back door uses. Oak warmer doors are doors that have been designed using the latest technology in composite core materials, which achieve great U values, suitable for achieving part L compliance - ideal for new build extensions, but retaining that classic oak door look.
Available as either glazed oak door or solid panelled options, our traditional external oak doors such as the Cottage 4L and 6L and Stable 4L and 6L continue to be extremely popular, with pattern 10 oak garden doors also a stylish option. For more modern tastes, our Modena, Goodwood and Newbury timber doors pair contemporary panelling with the classic and timeless natural beauty of oak.
Glazed Oak External Doors
Glazed doors are ideal for letting in plenty of natural light to your home. Our glazed oak external doors are available in a range of stylish designs, both traditional and modern. If you love the look of glazed doors but are worried about privacy, we offer obscure glass panels, which still allow plenty of light in, while keeping nosy passers by out! Double glazing keeps these oak doors energy efficient and your home warm and cosy, while toughened safety glass means they're safe for children and pets, as well as being highly secure.
How to Treat External Oak Doors
As your external doors are exposed to the elements, it's important to make sure they are properly protected. Without proper treatment, timber doors can warp, rot or split. Treating and protecting your doors is an ongoing task (you'll need to do it every couple of years), however the results are well worth it, as you'll see!
There are a variety of different treatments for timber doors available, including both oil-based and water-based options. Whatever you choose, it's vital to clean your door thoroughly before applying any treatment, to ensure an even finish and to avoid any damage to the door's surface. You can find out more in our article about choosing the best treatment for your external doors.
