Radnor Oak™ are a professional oak framing company specialising in the manufacture of high quality oak framed buildings and structures. We are based near Presteigne, a former market town on the Wales / England border. We work from drawings produced by our own design team or by the client’s designer, builder or architect. We are on hand to offer friendly and helpful advice at any stage of a project and will strive to produce the building or structure most suited to the client’s requirements. Our highly skilled team of framers takes great pride in producing hand crafted oak frames which are practical, beautiful and sympathetic to their surroundings. Each frame is traditionally jointed using time honoured methods such as draw pegged mortice & tenons and halving joints. Exposed posts & beams, cruck frames, curved knee braces, vaulted roof structures – just a few characteristics which add to the charm and beauty of an oak framed building. Garages, barns, stables,complexes, offices, studio’s, garden rooms, extensions, swimming pool enclosures, shooting & fishing lodges, boat houses, roof trusses, beamed ceilings – the list is endless. The products shown on this website represent a fraction of what can be achieved working with Radnor Oak™ – your imagination is the only limit.
Why an Oak Framed Building?
The strength, durability and unrivalled timeless qualities of oak have provided inspiration and confidence for centuries. Oak is a natural product which reacts to changes in atmospheric conditions. With the passage of time and variations in weather conditions, the frame will settle and the joints will become tighter. As each new shake appears (a small crack on the face of the timber caused by natural seasoning), new character is born. These subtle variations and mellowing of colour enhance the natural appearance of the product and do not detract from its strength or performance, in fact each building we manufacture uniquely improves with age. To include oak immediately adds warmth and character to your property. Throughout the years it just gets better – that’s the real beauty of oak. The oak used in our frames is sourced from sustainably managed woodlands, generally from the U.K. or Europe.
