What are the advantages and disadvantages of oak?

Oak has been used extensively in both boat and door manufacturing throughout the ages. Oak is hard and rot-resistant with distinct, beautiful veins. Its only disadvantage is that it is a bright wood and if you want to keep it bright outdoors, it requires more maintenance than a darker type of wood. More info about oak and how it should be maintained can be found on the page “Maintenance & installation”.
