Green Oak verandas are ideally suited to the U.K. We live in a country which is equally famous for two things:
1. our finely kept and tended gardens, and…
2. our unyielding drizzle.
Verandas, when constructed and installed in certain ways, can cheapen the look of a house. By constructing the veranda entirely from green oak, this problem is alleviated.The water content of oak at the time it is cut is over 20% – as the material loses moisture to the environment and stabilises, it will move and shake. Most oak that is used in application today has been dried in a controlled environment to limit and control this movement; green oak has not been through this process. This type of wood was used regularly in Tudor construction and is responsible for the warped beams and shaked external timber that adds so much character. This also gives an idea of longevity for this type of material.
We use SGG Planitherm, toughened, single pane glass and superior cappings as standard. We fix the structure with steel feet into solid concrete. We then clad the steel feet to continue the timber feel.
