Making High Quality Timber Garage Doors
As we wish to maintain the integrity of our Classic barn designs we try not to fall short on the joinery. Therefore we have written this piece to highlight the detail that goes in to the construction of our Classic barn doors.
Firstly we use Iroko instead of oak, we have found this timber to be far more stable. It is also very attractive and presents a nice contrast with the oak frame and cladding. The first step is for the craftsmen to reinforce the door with a frame, ledge and brace formation to its rear, then the front planks are rebated into this frame, all of this is designed to control any future movement in the timbers. We don’t stop there, the doors are braced with considerably long wrought iron hinges, again to control movement but also very attractive, these wrought iron hinges are complimented with a fine rose head nail detail running across the entire width of the door to add a traditional touch to the finish. A hefty wrought iron pack is also added, including kick pedals, locks, push bolts and holdbacks. Finally the door is treated with two coats of high quality treatment, something we recommend the client maintains over the forthcoming years.
Once our craftsmen hang the door the barn is finished and stamped with a nickel-plated brass plaque to authenticity, this being a genuine Classic Barn structure. Get in touch and ask for more information regarding the benefits in our doors and barn designs.
