Painted Wood House Signs

Painted wooden house signs have become very popular. We make them in Oak, Sapele, Red Grandis and the wood based board Tricoya. Oak is heavy and has a beautiful grain which can still be seen. However with oak is there is some movement in the oak and on the larger hanging signs this can occasionally be a problem.

Sapele is a very hard timber and durable timber as well being very stable. This means there will be less movement in the timber which is perfect for the larger painted signs. Sapele is a highly sustainable, relatively fast growing hardwood. Painted sapele has a very smooth finish.

Another excellent option is Red Grandis It is a straight grained, durable hardwood suitable for varnishing or painting. It is a good eco friendly option as it is fast growing - a great absorber of carbon dioxide and sustainable as it only comes from plantations. FSC 100% certified. It is a stable timber so ideal for painted framed sign.

The other option for painted wooden signs is painted Tricoya. This is a wood based board made using a high performance resin. It is very stable, strong, durable and weatherproof. Tricoya itself comes with a 50 year guarantee. It is also environmentally friendly. It comes in two thicknesses - 12mm and 18mm although we can bond sheets together for very large boards. It is a very useful material, maybe not quite as good looking as actual timber, but it is cheaper. Click here for more details of Painted Tricoya

The paint we use is a two component polyurethane paint which is much more durable than standard brush on paints. It is not only much tougher and longer lasting, but is also more resilient to chemicals

Black, white, pale grey F&B Purbeck Stone and a pale green F&B Lichen are the standard paint colours. There is also cream, heritage green and Farrow & Ball Estate No.84 green blue, Stiffkey Blue, French Grey among others available at £5 per order. See our Stock Colours. For colours we don't stock the cost is £55 per colour per order. We can match Farrow & Ball colours.

Painted can be as small as 20mm and the cost includes up to 50 letters. Extra letters are £1.65 per 25. We have a large range of fonts to choose from - click here.  We create a stencil using your chosen font and the letters are then painted - white, black, Farrow & Ball Purbeck Stone (light grey) or Lichen (light green) as standard. Stock colours also available @ £5.
NB We do apply several coats of our tough commercial paint so the letters will feel very slightly raised to the touch.

You may also want to add an image and again we have a huge choice of designs - click here. As these are to be painted on and not printed, please choose an image without very fine detail. The cost is £12.50 per image. If you wanted us to use your own image the cost is £34.50

A cheaper alternative to painted wooden signs is the Painted Tricoya Signs - Tricoya is a wood based very stable and long lasting board.

We do have some painted signs on Special Offer - Click Here


For single sided signs it may be better to use an adhesive rather than spoil the clean look with holes. This are available from any builders merchant. We can supply CT1 or Power Grab N Bond at £15.30.

NB Single side signs are painted on the reverse, but you will see a small hole which is used to hang the sign from during the paint spraying process.

We also supply a range of hanging brackets for double sided hanging signs, along with various fittings

NB The paint completely encapsulates the sign so great care must be taken if you drill holes or screw into the sign. You are creating a weak point where water can penetrate, which will in turn cause the paint to bubble. If you have to drill a hole for fixing then make sure you fill the hole with a sealant such as CT1 before putting in the screws or bolts

Wooden house sign with posts

Painted Signs with Posts
Painted wooden signs and painted posts have increased in popularity by huge amounts in the last year. While the signs and posts have a clean modern feel there is something very traditional about them. Normally posts come ready to be buried into the soil. (at least 450mm)  We also have a large range of other posts - softwood and hardwood in various lengths - click here

Painted wood framed signs

Painted Wood Framed Signs
These are an alternative painted solid wood sign. The frame is 30mm hardwood and the internal panel is 6.5mm waterproof Tricoya Board. This wood based composite product is exceptionally stable, strong, durable and weatherproof. These can again be single sided wall mounted house name signs, or double sided hanging signs. We also make blank boards for you to paint your own lettering. These are available painted in all our stock colours and in portrait or landscape.
