Oak has been used as a building material for thousands of years. It is a strong, versatile material that will last for hundreds of years and actually becomes more attractive with age, ensuring that oak framed garages or oak carports will continue to provide that all important, aesthetic ‘wow’ factor decades after they are constructed. Oak frames will support a considerable weight, allowing for oak framed garage structures with large expanses and multiple bays. In addition, the versatility of oak ensures almost limitless bespoke garage design opportunities and garage configuration and styles.
When a green oak frame is manufactured, there is still a high level of moisture within the oak. The advantage of this is that when the joints are made using timber pegs, the shrinkage process pulls the joints even tighter and strengthens the timber frame.
Oak is also an eco-friendly choice. It is a sustainable material and has incredible thermal properties making it an excellent insulator. Country Buildings only source green oak from sustainable sources, so you can be assured that your oak framed garage kit is truly a renewable product.
As well as impressive single storey garages, Country Buildings are known for beautiful Room Over garage ranges which provide additional space above the garage structure. Aesthetically, whilst other materials may offer similar solutions, none offer the warmth of exposed natural oak gables and beams. Features such as this truly set traditional oak frames apart from alternative construction methods and one of the key reasons why oak is regarded as the perfect material for creating the dream oak garage or timber carport.
