Wooden entrance signs on posts are ideal for the end of your drive. As always we have lots of choices. Firstly you can choose between a natural wood with painted carved letters, or a painted entrance sign in a lovely range of colours. There are also four types of post top to choose from. For a natural wood we usually use oak but iroko is another option.
Most of our painted signs are made in oak but there are different post options. Oak is the heaviest and longest lasting, Idigbo is a lighter weight moderately durable hardwood. Softwood is considerably cheaper.
The beautiful grain of the oak does remain visible beneath the paint. If you prefer not to see the grain we suggest you have a Tricoya board.This is a very tough and completely weatherproof wood based board. Sapele wood is another option and this is priced the same as oak. Extensive testing has shown that paints can last up to three times as long on Accoya than on other timbers.
