30th January 2015
The first month of 2015 is nearly over, which means its nearly time for this months special offer to end. All throughout January 2015, we have been offering you the chance to purchase one of our Yorkshire Solid Oak Ledged Door Kits for just £105.00 + VAT + Delivery.
Our Yorkshire oak doors are made from the same high quality European oak as our character grade oak flooring. These doors are left unfinished, leaving you to stain, wax or oil as you see fit. If you are looking for that completely natural look, the Blanchon Original Wood Environment provides protection for your door without changing its colour.
The Yorkshire kit form doors are supplied with all the screws and plugs required to build the doors up. These doors are not pre-drilled so will require you to line them up and drill them. We can supply your doors in sizes of either 2’3″, 2’6″ and 2’9″.
To take advantage of this offer whilst you still can, give us a call on 01538 304584.

“Our customers can get along without us. We can’t get along without them.”
Customers are everything at JCB, something we also believe at Peak Oak. This is something we learnt first hand earlier this week when Adrian and Tom visited the JCB Headquarters. During the visit they were astounded by this great company, offering a fantastic product with fantastic service. The group were treated second to none throughout the day, for this we would like to take the time to thank all involved.
During the visit, we also took a look at a new machine we are looking to bring to Peak Oak, the JCB 541-70 Agri Loadall. This new tool will be used for a number of different tasks around our yard including the manoeuvring of oak flooring and oak beams.
One of the main features that drew us to this machine is the JCB’s EcoMax engine. For some time now we have looked at ways to be more economical in what we do. This engine offers improved power and productivity, as the unit produces its power and torque at low revs. This means that the engine has to work less hard, which saves fuel.
Some images from the visit can be seen on our Facebook page by clicking here.

The grade of oak flooring you choose is one of the biggest influences in how your room will look once the floor has been laid. On one end of the scale is the Prime grade, offering the cleanest and most minimalist look. On the other end is the Barn grade, for those wanting maximum character from their oak flooring.
The barn grade oak flooring is by far the most rustic of the grades available. These solid oak boards are defined by their high number of knots, burrs, colour streaks, shakes, cracks and holes.
Barn grade solid oak flooring is for those areas where absolute character is required. These boards are best suited for the more rustic properties, such as old barns or Tudor cottages. The more traffic and wear a barn grade board gets, the better it often looks. The increased knots and burrs of a barn grade board, often means that the boards appear darker in comparison to other grades.
In terms of durability, there is no difference between any of the unfinished grades of solid oak flooring we supply. The choice of grade should only be influenced by what best suits your environment.
Our barn grade solid oak flooring is available as our standard 20mm thick board as well as in our 14mm range. To discuss either of these further with us, give us a call on 01538 304584.
