Why Your Property Would be Much Better Oak Framed


Whilst any modification to you need to do to your house is often expensive, it’s sometimes crucial to make those changes. When it comes to your house, it’s a real investment that you need to keep up to date to maintain its appeal in case you ever want to sell the property and move to a new house. Having your house oak framed is a worthwhile investment as it enhances the property whilst you live there but also enhances the value greatly in case you ever felt the need to move out. Here’s why we think your property would be much better oak framed.


Increase in Value


The value of your house will increase by a big amount with oak framing. There’s many reasons for this but primarily because it looks brilliant and oak is expensive. Whilst the fact it is expensive means a significant expense for you to have it installed, it is definitely worth it. Despite the expense, due to the fact it makes your house look better and increases the value for a long time, it’s a cost-effective way to improve the value of a home.


Thermal Insulation


We’ve all experienced a horribly cold winter if you’re a UK resident and it is truly terrible! With oak framed properties, the insulation is much better than that of houses with no oak framing. This is because the oak doesn’t soak up the heat, it encloses it in the rooms of your building. After just a little while of heating, your house can be nice and warm. The only disadvantage to this is that it will contain the heat at all times, including the often-stifling summer temperature.


Sound Insulation


What’s the easiest and quickest way to block out loud noises? Stick something big, heavy and dense between you and the annoying sound. Oak meets all 3 of those criteria so is perfect as sound insulation for your property. It makes oak framing perfect for those who live near a busy road or a train line. You’ll never have to worry about having your quiet evening in spoiled by loud noise anymore with your oak framed property.


Strength / Durability / Lifespan


Oak is a very durable wood. This means that oak framed properties don’t have to worry about the oak rotting or being destroyed within a couple of years. With a wood such as oak, you’re guaranteed a significant lifespan so that your home will stay looking beautiful for years to come. Despite the classic British mix of weather, your oak is very robust. You have nothing to worry about in terms of durability whether the oak has to face rain or snow.


Carbon Footprint


With oak framed properties, your house means you’ll have a much better carbon footprint in comparison to concrete and steel. The reason for this is that oak is a renewable source of material. It’s often mentioned that oak is carbon neutral which means that when it comes to sourcing the oak, processing, manufacturing and delivering the C02 issue is basically non-existent due to the fact that the oak will absorb plenty during its lifetime.
