External doors were traditionally manufactured using hardwood, but in recent years Oak doors, furniture and kitchens have increased in popularity and have replaced the more traditional hardwood trend. Our ranges of traditional Oak doors have been chosen, with the knowledge that timeless classics are still in demand. This range allows the character of traditional homes to be sympathetically updated and be better insulated, by keeping out those drafts.
The Empress traditional Oak external door is one of our latest editions to the range and is designed to offer you a unique look. This Oak door has a detailed design and comes with leaded double glazing providing that traditional style with up to date performance standards.
