Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get my frame delivered?

Yes, we run a fleet of delivery vehicles to offer our customers a nationwide delivery service, offering flexibility on times to suit your needs. We do not have a hi-ab, so it is advisable that the customer/site has the use of suitable lifting equipment at the delivery address to offload larger frames.

This includes everything from ground works, brickwork, frame installation, specialist glazing, through to door and roof lantern installation, roofing and the final oiling of your frame.

Can Forest Oak help me with the design?

Absolutely, if you only have an idea and are stuck for design, we have a number of specialist oak frame architects that we work closely with. We will work with these designers to turn your idea into a finished product that you are happy with. We can turn your ideas into full working drawings usually within 3-5 working days.

Once you are happy with the design, we can then assist in taking the drawings through the planning process.
