We specialise in period and architecturally interesting properties, so no two jobs are the same. Our service is perfect for anyone looking to do house restoration since we use reclaimed oak as well as treated new wood. We take great pride in being flexible enough to deal with most wood house restoration projects.
The personal Oakedoake touch.
If you are restoring a historical building, it is very important you have that personal touch. As a family business, we look at each job on an individual level. We tailor-make high quality fixtures and fittings that not only match exactly the physical dimensions of the project but also blend with the design and style of the whole. Since we work with new kiln dried, seasoned and reclaimed oak, the work will fit in perfectly with the original features and work done on the house. Our products are provided in a range of finishes including fuming, shot blasting, different shades of wood stain, waxing and oiling. Oakedoake hand forged hinges, latches and rose head nails are used to enhance all our traditional designs.
What is the difference between Reclaimed Oak and New?
Oakedoake's Reclaimed Oak is mainly recovered from dismantled barns or other disused wooden buildings and as such, once worked on, our wood is hardly distinguishable from the original woodwork in the building. We only use wood that is in good condition and treated against decay and therefore it retains its strength over time. Our method is an ecologically friendly way of building.
New wood which is treated and designed to look perfectly in era, is a cheaper option, due to availability but provides an equally good finish - particularly in more modern properties.
