Finishing Products for Internal Oak Doors
Enhancing and protecting the natural beauty of your internal oak timber doors with the correct products can help to create a fantastic look within your home and bring out the very best in the attractive wood used to construct your door.
All types of internal doors, including french doors, can be treated with an oil based stain or varnish, but it's important to use the right product for the job as some finishes can be detrimental to the door. We don't advocate the usage of any water based or Danish oil type finishes as we feel they do not offer sufficient protection to the door and with engineered doors can cause bubbling and/or damage to veneers and the construction of the door. If at any stage you aren't sure about using a particular product, please contact us. Information can also be found in our Door Care Guide.

On all of our internal oak doors we now offer the option of a pre-finishing service, which for an additional fee we'll supply your pre-finished doors to a professional standard by our french polisher.
This is particularly useful should you wish the receive the doors in a "ready to hang" condition or if you don't have the space/intention to finish the doors in situe.
When selecting this option, doors will be pre-sanded and sealed with a shellac sanding sealer. When dry, the door is then “de-nibbed” with a 400 grit sand paper and hand polished with 2 coats of Finpol French Polish, specially formulated for doors and internal joinery. Each coat is de-nibbed between applications leaving the door with a semi matt, smooth to the touch finish, which is resistant to knocks and finger marks.
This option can be selected on any of our Internal Oak Doors and will add approximately a week on to any estimated lead time.
