I built a porch with 5 x 5 green oak beams seven years ago. I fitted a used uPVC door and frame and of course this has now pulled out of shape due to the oak drying out. I expected this and that was why I used a free door a neighbour was throwing out. I now want to fit a new door and my question is has the oak now stabilized or can I expect more shrinkage?

Pedant mode, sorry.......but they're not beams unless they're horizontal. Vertical members are studs or posts.

As you were.

Yandles sold them to me as beams, I just stood some on end and made them posts :D Thanks for confirming they will now be dry
