Why Should You Choose Oak For Your Home Conservatory | Tips From Carpenters London

One would think that with so many construction materials available on the market, oak will seem outdated and inefficient. However, that is not the case. There is a reason why it has been in use for centuries and continues to be in demand. Oak posses a number of qualities that make it the best fit for your new home conservatory.

First of all, we are all at least a little bit vain and want our homes to be the envy of our friends, family, neighbours and even the occasional passer-by. Even though PVC and metal would mould into fascinating designs, wooden conservatories have an air of elegance and lush that can't be rivalled. Probably, we owe it to our deep and colourful history and epochs of splendour and luxury, during which wooden designs, structures and ornaments were a constant presence in the lives of our ancestors.

With the constant drive to make our homes more environmentally-friendly, it is no surprise that we start to consider the eco-friendly benefits of the materials they choose. Furthermore, you must have already heard that the government is planning to implement a green tax on conservatories, starting from April 2014. One of the exclusions to the mandatory 10% levy will be made for houses that already have high energy performance ratings.

In this line of thought, the oak has great insulation and thermal qualities. In the hot summer days the oak actually stimulates the air circulation by pushing the hot air out, thus cooling the air inside the facility. On the other hand, during the winter, wood keeps the hot air from leaving the conservatory. Combine oak framework with double-glazed windows and you will have the ultimate insulation. By caring about the insulation and thermal qualities of the used materials, you will be able to cut your energy bills at least by half – claim electricians in London.

The qualities of the oak do not end with this. It is also very easy to maintain. A lot of the home owners avoid getting wooden structures as they consider them “unreliable”. However, the truth is that you can find manufacturers that produce wooden material of such a high quality that it will endure hurricanes and earthquakes and last for over century with just the occasional re-varnishing. Actually, carpenters from London believe that while metal and PVC could deteriorate over time, wood, and especially our European oak, is naturally immune to internal damages.
