Why build with oak?

Oak is a strong and durable timber with many interesting products. It has a high tannin content which helps prevent decay and attack by insects ensuring its longevity, some buildings have been known to last many hundreds of years.
Its tight grain adds to the strength of the timber while affording an aesthetic look that is very pleasing to the eye and the touch. This also presents several challenges to the carpenter, requiring several years of training and craftsmanship to allow the embracement of different techniques to achieve a consistency between different sections of timber.
Fresh green oak, by its nature, is always moving. It’s exposure to humidity and heat means that it is constantly drying. It is said that this movement gives the feeling of the building “being alive”, a living material having a presence of its very own.


Oak framing is a beautiful and timeless way to build a home because it provides several advantages over other types of framing.  There are many benefits to choosing oak framing for your new home. Here are just some of them:

  • Durability – Oak is a hardwood which makes it highly resistant to decay. It’s naturally rot resistant, meaning it won’t rot away over time.
  • Long life span – With proper maintenance, oak can last for hundreds of years.
  • Energy efficiency – Oak framing is incredibly energy efficient. It keeps heat inside the home during cold winters and cool air outside during hot summers.
  • Sustainable – Oak is a natural product, making it a sustainable building material.

Oak is a hardwood that is very durable and resistant to decay. It is also naturally rot resistant, ideal for keeping out rain, wind and snow! Because of this, oak is an ideal choice for construction because it lasts longer than other types of building materials.

As one of the most common types of trees, oak can often be harvested without farming forests. As such, green oak framing is extremely energy efficient and produces minimal waste. It is also a renewable resource, making it a great option for those who care about sustainability. Where as, other types of building can decay or need constant upkeep, oak is resistant to rot.

An oak frame building will last for centuries if well maintained. The wood used in the construction of the frames is usually sourced from old growth trees, so they should last for generations. However, the roofing, cladding and siding may need replacing sooner depending on how exposed the building is to weather conditions.

The time taken to build an oak framed structure depends on many factors, including the size of the property, the type of work required, and the location of the site. We recommend speaking to our team at Premier Oak Buildings before starting any work to ensure you get a fair price and estimate.

Just like any kind of building, you will need to have planning permission from your local authority such as your town or city council. Approval of the construction will depend on the design of your plan and its impact on the local area.

However, smaller buildings, such as oak garages and similar buildings, may not require planning permission. Contact your local authorities for more information,
