Oak remains the BarrJoinery decorative hardwood of choice, where the finished product is stained rather than painted. Hard wearing and with its unmistakable classic aesthetic. Oak has traditionally been used for external joinery in Britain for many centuries and will continue to be used for years to come.
Acetylated timber has become a favoured alternative for external joinery. Outstandingly stable, durable, rot resistant and engineered to prolong the life of its chosen finish, it’s properties lend themselves to life in the British weather. The chemical process of acetylation structurally alters the timber at a molecular level, rendering it incapable of being altered by moisture.
