Why choose Oak?
From our base in Mirfield, West Yorkshire, we supply quality oak framed constructions to customers across the UK. Our oak framers are expert in the skills necessary to produce high quality oak framed structures guaranteed to last.
Oak is fabulous for construction.
Due to its flexibility, Oak is a perfect building material, providing strength & durability.
Natural and Environmentally Friendly
Oak’s flexibility means that it can be used to create any type of building including: houses and swimming pools, garden rooms and extensions, garages and stables, orangeries and conservatories and porches and gazebos, It can also be used to build commercial properties and add character to establishments such as restaurants and farm shops.
All the oak used by Paragon comes from sustainable, managed forests so our customers can rest assured that, for every tree cut down, many more will be planted helping to reduce carbon levels in the atmosphere, helping their families do their bit for the environment and assisting companies in being more socially responsible.
Given that it’s a completely natural material, oak framed constructions exude a sense of warmth and comfort which man-made materials simply cannot emulate. Oak is also a breathable material which helps a in maintaining a healthier living environment in the building.
An oak framed building will dry out naturally once construction is completed and a certain amount of shrinkage and splitting may take place. This is to be expected and will not affect the underlying strength and integrity of the structure.
In fact, once completed, an oak framed building needs very little maintenance. The green oak we use in our constructions can be left bare and untreated – indeed many of our customers prefer it this way.
The untreated oak will then turn silver grey over time. Some of our customers wish to retain the colour of the oak as when newly constructed, in which case, the oak timbers can be treated with oil to preserve the original look.
Oiling would then need to be repeated every couple of years to avoid irregularities in the timbers’ colouring.
