All of our frames are produced using a combination of machine manufacturing along with hand finishing by skilled craftsman. Forest Oak is able to offer the best in technology whilst still using time-tested traditional methods and techniques.
All of our timber goes through a rigorous in-house grading system on-site, in Europe. We achieve this by visiting our mills in person every month of the year, without fail. If the quality is not up to our standards we will not use it – and this, we have been told by our customers, is one of the points that set us apart from our competitors.
Forest Oak was established through a fourth generation oak importer, Border Hardwood, in order to meet the increasing demand for hand finished, ready to erect oak frames.
Our work varies dramatically in size and scale, from simple oak canopies, porches, and pergolas, through to oak garden rooms, orangeries, extensions, carports, garages and entire timber-framed houses.
Whilst a lot of our oak frames are totally bespoke and to our customers’ designs, we can also offer a number of ‘off the peg’ configurations. These frames have become particularly popular with our trade customers, with the set sizes decreasing the period required for full installation. As with all of our frames, we can erect our off the peg frames for you, or offer a supply only service.
We are based in Shropshire, on a large industrial estate, and with quick and easy links to the road networks, are able to operate a fleet of delivery vehicles meaning we can offer a truly national service – delivering and fitting frames throughout the UK.
