Q : Are these doors made of solid Oak?
A : The veneers of these doors, are made of solid and genuine American White Oak. The same applies to the lipping range, which again, is made of solid Oak. The cores of these doors however, is a combination of a particleboard core to give doors their solid structure. So although these doors are not a solid core of Oak, we still classify these doors as " Solid " Oak doors.
Q : Are these glass panels secure?
A : All glass panels implemented in our doors are safety regulated. They meet criterias set nowdays for all glazed units to be toughened. If for arguments sake a child is to smash a glass panel, if the glass breaks, it breaks off into very small minor peices which will minimise the chance of hurting someone. All manufactured doors with glass panels, are bonded together and run through various inspections before being sent off to you as the customer.
Q : Do doors always need plaining?
A : They do indeed! Our carpentry team cannot remember a time where we've put a 30" door in a frame and haven't needed to do some trimming down. It's part of a normal fitting process, to where you will need to take the door out and back in again, just to get the alignment as perfect as you can. Please view our lipping thickness on your items to review how much can be took off.
Q : Are Oak doors okay for External doors if the door is exposed to the weather?
A : No! We don't care what company recommends this, but we have been fitting these doors for over 15 years and if your door is exposed
to the weather, you WILL encounter many problems further down the line.
You may not notice any problems in the first year or two, but we've had countless issues with Oak doors that are not protected by a canopy of some sort, or situated back and protected. We strongly advise looking at an alternative which we can discuss with you a little more in detail via our contact number - 0116 270 1234.
