Oak House Name Sign

Carved Oak House Signs
Oak is a beautiful timber and without doubt incredibly durable, strong and heavy. It has a lovely variations within the grain and sometimes has small knots and burrs which are most attractive. It is the most popular timber for house signs, but it does have one disadvantage - if you want to keep it looking at its best you must oil it regularly. However providing it is maintained it will last a lifetime.

White painted oak signs

White Painted Oak House Signs
This type of oak house sign has recently become very popular. Maybe the simple clean lines are more suited to a contemporary setting. The oak is sanded to a fine finish and six coats of white exterior paint are applied. The lettering is then painted on in a font of your choice. Quite detailed images can also be included.

Chestnut house sign

Wooden House Signs - Chestnut
Sweet chestnut is traditionally known as poor mans oak! We don't look at it this way - more of an interesting alternative to oak. These wooden house signs certainly do look very similar to oak and have fairly dense grain. Chestnut also has a high tannin content which makes it very durable.


Cherry Signs
This is a timber which reddens when exposed to sunlight and the colour does improve with age. It does need to be well maintained when used outside though.

Rustic Timber Slice

Rustic Timber Slices
Rustic timber slices make interesting wooden house signs and they are reasonabley priced. Each piece of wood is different so each sign is individual. The bark is left on and the top surface is varnished. They are made in three different size brackets.
