Painted Accoya Wood House Signs

Painted wooden house signs have become very popular. We make them in Oak, Accoya and Idigbo. 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. Accoya is very stable and more durable than the best tropical hardwoods. Idigbo is a lighter weight cheaper hardwood.

Accoya starts life as Radiata Pine which is a fast growing sustainable timber. The wood is then modified by acetylation which changes the chemical structure from the surface to the core. This is a completely non toxic process, which introduces no chemicals not already found in the timber. It actually uses acetic acid (also known as vinegar in it’s diluted form) to modify the timber.

Acetylation creates the high performance wood, more stable and durable, mainly due to the fact that it almost eliminates the woods ability to absorb water.

It can withstand the toughest outdoor environments and requires far less maintenance. Extensive testing has shown that paints can last up to three times as long on Accoya compared to unmodified wood.

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 £9.50 per image. If you wanted us to use your own image the cost is £29.50

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


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

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
