- Why Choose Hearts of Oak?
In these challenging financial times, one often finds many suppliers all claiming to be superior, and making an informed decision is sometimes a bit of a lottery. Perhaps I may offer you a few points herein which might assist you.
Our oak framed buildings are the highest quality available within our industry whilst costing less than most of our competitors. Supplied by Oakcraft, a long established manufacturer of high quality oak framed buildings, the oak used in our frames is sourced from sustainably managed woodlands in Europe and the U.K, and is, as far as I am aware, the largest section (8 ” x 8”) used in the industry. Each post or beam is carefully inspected so as to ensure that it is suitable and is structurally sound before it is included in the frame. If left in its natural state, with the passage of time, your building will take on a new appearance – subtle variations and a mellowing of colour will add warmth and character to your home. Our oak frames will last for centuries, will create invaluable additional space and will add value to your property.
We don’t consider our structures to be ‘just another oak framed building’, we consider them to be an extension to your property. Every frame is designed to be practical whilst looking distinguished.
Each building is designed to comply with modern building regulations and is accompanied by a structural engineer’s report where required.
Our buildings are designed so that they remain weatherproof and secure. Concealed saw cuts are incorporated within the oak frame to accommodate lead and damp proof membranes where required. Our buildings normally have oak sole plates as standard which many competitors omit.
The oak we use is carefully selected for suitability and its intended use it is not purchased entirely on price – cheaper oak is often available to us but we insist on using the appropriate grade.
All of our frames are traditionally hand crafted from constructional grade oak in our own workshops in Wales, (not machined overseas as is the case with many of our competitors).
Our buildings improve with age – the older they are the better they look!
We can build everything from a complete house, to garden rooms, conservatories, swimming pool rooms and covers, garden offices, pavilions for private gardens and clubs, garages, log stores, open bay buildings, barns, stables etc. The directors have many years’ experience in building timber framed buildings as well as yachts and have their own horses. They are therefore able to discuss with you your personal requirements with a certain degree of knowledge.
