The Timber We Use

In our workshop in Oswestry, we use kiln dried American White Oak which has a moisture content of approx. 8-10%. which is ideal for use in a home environment. We always recommend that all solid oak products are kept in the room where they are being fitted for at least 48 hours to acclimatise. We have three grades of Oak; Rustic Oak, Character Oak and Prime Oak. Whether you’re looking for something traditional, contemporary, classic or modern, we’ve got it all! If you’re planning on a total overhaul of your home, or a simple room refurbishment, Blueprint Cottage Doors is here to help. We offer a friendly service where we work with you to get the right products for your home, from standard door sizes to made to measure doors, we are sure we can help. Come down to our workshop in Oswestry and choose the solid oak for yourself.

More About Manufacturing

Our Solid Oak Skirting and Architraves are manufactured from Character Grade Oak and are supplied by the metre up to 3 long.

Our Solid Oak Cottage Doors are available in any of the three grades listed; select the grade that best suits your property.

Doors are manufactured from solid oak tongue and groove planks which are held together with horizontal ledges. As standard Ledges are pined and glued into position, however we can drill and glug the Ledges into place if preferred. We make our range of cottage doors in our workshop in Oswestry.

Doors are manufactured with 2mm gaps between boards, this is to allow the door to move freely within itself due to temperature and moisture changes that occur naturally in the home.

Other Things Worth Noting

  • All Solid Oak products must be laid flat when being stored
  • Do not store solid oak doors standing on any edge
  • Allow your solid oak timber products to acclimatise for at least 48 hours before fitting
  • Do not store your solid oak products in a damp environment.
  • Ensure all wet trades are completely dry before introducing solid oak products into the environment
  • Ensure doors are fully finished including hidden areas such as top and bottom edges, behind hinges and latches. This will stop any moisture ingress
  • Your solid oak products will need to be maintained on a regular basis
  • If you have any questions or concerns about any of our products please contact us via email or drop-by our workshop in Oswestry.
