Finishing Treatment for Wooden House Signs and Large Wooden Sign Boards

All wooden signs need to to be cared for if they are going to last. It is important to keep the water out and protect against UV, fungus and algae. The only timbers which need little care are those high in oil eg Iroko, Red Cedar, Balau and Opepe

Standard Finish - Satin Finish Varnish

Our standard finish is a vapour permeable and flexible acrylic varnish which is sprayed onto the timber. We apply one base coat and two top coats. This product gives excellent long term performance but is only available to the trade.Varnishing has an advantage over oiling in that it will last several years without being touched. The only disadvantage is when maintenance is required the sign will first have to be sanded down. At The Sign Maker we do offer a refurbishment service. If Varnish is used on signs with white letters it will cause a slight yellowing of the letters. Not to be used for oily timbers eg Iroko, Opepe or Balau.

Danish Oil

Danish Oil

A superior blend of natural oils and resins that penetrates into the wood to nourish, feed and protect. It gives a tough, durable and waterproof finish which brings out the beauty of the timber. It leaves a natural, open grained, soft lustrous finish. It is suitable for all timbers and easy to use -  just wipe on with a cloth. The only disadvantage is the timber will need to be treated 3 - 4 times a year. 

We can sell small tins of Rustins Danish Oil (250mm) with your sign @ £7.50

Osmo protection oil

OSMo - Extra Protection Oil 

Osmo UV-Protection-Oil Extra, based on natural vegetable oils is microporous, and does not crack, flake, peel or blister. The natural oils penetrate deeply into the wood, keeping it elastic and healthy, and preventing it from drying and becoming brittle. The wood is allowed to breathe, yet is protected against the elements with a clear satin-matt finish. It also blocks the greying process by UV-Protection factor 12 in comparison to untreated wood and it contains active ingredients for protection against algae and fungal decay. It also has the advantage of less treatments than Danish Oil - a once a year treatment is sufficient to maintain your sign (in shelter sites - every two years).Extra cost for treating your sign with Osmo - £3.50

It is however not suitable for the initial treatment of wood which contain a lot of their own oil eg Iroko and Balau .We can sell small tins of clear Osmo 420 Oil (125ml) with your sign @ £8.50

Ronseal Yacht Varnish

Ronseal Gloss Yacht Varnish

For wood exposed to the elements, Ronseal Yacht Varnish flexes with the movement of the wood, resisting cracking peeling and blistering. The weather proofing formula protects the wood from damaging UV rays whilst waterproofing to prevent water damage.
Extra cost for varnishing your sign - £5.50 please add 2 days to production time.
