Why invest in a made to measure oak front door?

There are many benefits from choosing a naturally strong, durable, and beautiful wood like oak. A made to measure solid oak front door creates a beautiful, welcoming entrance to homes in Surrey and Sussex, adding real character, warmth, strength and value to the property.

Oak, when crafted in skilled hands, is the most naturally beautiful and long-lasting material for a front door. European oak is particularly suited to front doors. This heavy, dense hardwood will stand the test of time and give your home the look and feel of quality it deserves. A solid oak door has a warmth and weight that exudes a reassuring sturdiness.

An oak front door is better for the environment

The European Oak we use at Acorn Bespoke Carpentry and Joinery is renewable, natural and sustainable. At Acorn Bespoke Carpentry and Joinery, we source and select the most sustainable FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) timber, which ensures forests are replanted and responsibly managed.

A custom-made oak front door is strong and secure

Custom-made doors, crafted using traditional time-honoured mortice and tenon construction have great strength and durability. When made to measure by a skilled artisan, a heavy oak front door provides unsurpassed luxury and security.

A handcrafted oak front door is a natural insulator

Solid European oak has tremendous thermal and sound insulation qualities. Expertly fitted, the oak door and frame will help to conserve energy and insulate from noise.

A bespoke oak front door is perfect for period properties

Oak is ideal for external doors in conservation areas where a traditional look is vital to retain the character of a period home, whether Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian or 1930s.The timeless quality of oak is particularly suited to listed buildings and rural dwellings. We specialise in traditional styles for conservation and listed buildings and we can carefully match your existing entrance door, or work with you to create a unique design that stays true to the character of your property.

A bespoke oak front door can be simple or ornate

Handcrafted oak doors look equally stunning in a minimalist design or a grand style with panelling, mouldings, edging and glazing. At Acorn Bespoke Carpentry and Joinery, we can match a like for like door or create an original design built to your specification.
