Oak Frame Extensions
An oak frame sunroom or orangery can totally transform how you use your home. Flooded with light in the Summer whilst retaining a cosy feel in the Winter, Oak Country Buildings can help you get the best in form and function from your oak framed extension whether through the integration of rooflights, bi-folding doors or underfloor heating. Gone are the days of the freezing cold or boiling hot uPVC conservatory; our oak framed extensions are a true 'extension' to your living space and are designed to be enjoyed all year round.

What can I expect if I appoint Oak Country Buildings to build my oak frame extension?
At Oak Country Buildings, we understand that working on your home while you and your family are resident carries a big responsibility and is one we do not take lightly.
It's one of the reasons why we are a traditional employer and directly employ the vast majority of our workforce. Our employees are assessed carefully not only for their skills but for also for their approachability, reliability and integrity. Where contractors are used, they have been carefully vetted to check they complement the standards we expect. We trust our team and so can you.
In the past, our clients have found it useful to see the Oak Country Building finish for themselves before committing to a builder. On request, we can arrange accompanied tours of recently completed projects where you can get a first-hand reference from previous clients.
Planning and Programming of the Works
Each project is meticulously planned from the outset and prior to the
commencement of works on site, a full programme of works will be provided to the client detailing expected progress and timescales. All clients will be introduced to a senior team member with whom they can liaise on site and will be assigned a key contact in the office who will assist and oversee their project from start to completion. As each project is sensitively overseen by one of our passionate team, we can ensure that we deliver a high quality standard of workmanship that belies our competitive pricing structures.
Health and Safety
Health and Safety is rigorously planned and all our staff work in
strict adherence to their Health and Safety responsibilities, ensuring the
safety of employees, clients and the general public. Before the commencement of works, we will ensure that you are aware of roles and responsibilities for you as the employer and for Oak Country Buildings in accordance with CDM2015. A Construction Phase Plan will be prepared and shared with you and all attendees. Please feel free to download and read our Health and Safety Policy.
Flexibility, Form and Function
Oak Country Buildings are committed to high quality workmanship that will not only look aesthetically pleasing for years to come but will function well and enhance your experience of your home. For your new extension to feel naturally connected to the whole, we have built up a supply network for reclaimed building materials which allows us to seamlessly blend the interface between new extensions and period or listed properties.
At the same time, we actively embrace new technologies, provide advice to our customers and select the best materials and products to give their projects longevity. Flexibility in approach has brought us a wealth of experience in a large range of techniques and applications:
Oak Country Buildings operates a stage payment system for all building projects over ten thousand pounds. These are always in arrears and are scheduled to correspond with completion of key tasks on a critical path. The payment schedule can be found on the works programme supplied pre-construction.
Oak Frames and Bespoke Joinery will be subject to a deposit system. Our standard terms are: 50% on order, 25% predelivery and 25% on installation.
In addition to this, we have experience of working to contract and under the direction of client appointed architects.
