A beautiful oak engarved house sign
You have a number of personal choices to make. The size, number of posts, lettering colour and if you wish to have any arrows or symbols.
The signs come in small or large, small is upto 50cm wide or large from 50cm to 1 metre long. The choice of width can be either made by yourself, or by us. If you leave it to us, we will allow the lettering to dictate the length. Or you could specify a set length and the lettering will be placed in the centre with equal spacing on each side. We recommend on small house names or numbers to have the text centred in a sign at least 30cm long to maintain the chunky look of the sign, but this is your choice.
The sign comes with either one post in the centre, or you can have two posts towards each ends.
The engraved letters can be left natural and oiled or painted black. If your sign needs to be read at a distance black is recommended.
All signs will have with three coats of oil unless otherwise specified.
Wood naturally silvers over time, and we expect all our signs to beautiful silver too. If you wish to delay this weathering process we recommend applying another coat of oil after 3 months, and then every 6 months after that, this will nourish to the wood, enhance the colour and protect from wet weather.
Ask us about any other arrows, shapes or symbols.
At House fo Carving we spare no expense is both materials and time to make our superior solid oak house signs.
Our signs are chunky and strong for stability and long life, your sign will be handcrafted from oak which is hand selected from the wood mill.
Rather than ordering wood in bulk to the workshop, every section of timber is picked and chosen to come back to the workshop. We actually visit the wood yard and spend climbing over and sifting through the timber looking closely at the wood grain structure, colour and a number of other factors which now comes naturally to us. This way we start ahead of the competition by only having the best oak in our products, only the cream of the oak make it!
Your sign will arrive already assembled with guidance on installation. So all you need to do is get it in the ground.
