Can you use oak for window sill?
Oak is one of the most popular woods for window sills. Native to Europe, oak is durable, strong, and relatively easy to work with. Its warm yellow and brown colour makes it a popular choice among interior designers. Oak is also fairly elastic, making it less susceptible to water damage than other woods. Therefore, it makes for a perfect material for window sills, which typically range in width from 24 mm to 400 mm.
A full length stave solid oak window board will transform the look of any window. Whether it is a sash or bay window, a full-length board will bring a new level of sophistication to your home. The material is easy to clean and is also available in a range of different colours and finishes.
Wooden window sills require regular maintenance in order to retain their protective qualities. Exposure to weather can cause the paint or varnish on wooden boards to fade over time, exposing the wood to moisture.
