    Thank you for making and delivering our gift so quickly – it is super and, I hope, will be a long lasting reminder of our son and daughter-in-law’s wedding anniversary and an appropriate celebration of their new house!

    I will recommend your company to my friends and certainly hope to purchase a really good chopping board in the ‘not too distant future’.

    Sincerely
    Pat

    Hi Ben,

    We are delighted with our house sign and the quality of it. It arrived in perfect condition and looks great now that we have “planted” it at the bottom of the farm road.

    We are needing two smaller signs so will come back to you in the near future.

    Kind regards
    Debra

Finish: Untreated, Superior Danish Oil or Diamond Coating

Aftercare: Product maintenance is very important. If you have chosen your product to be left untreated, your product will fade to a pale silver in time. We recommend a pressure wash or a sand once a year to remove any moss or unwanted mess on the timber and then treat with an exterior oil to slow down decay.

Danish Oil – If you have chosen Danish oil we recommend you continue to treat your product with Danish oil or similar timber treatment oil to protect the timber and stop it drying out. This will also help to prevent staining, discolouration, cracking and warping.

Dimond Coating – If you have chosen Dimond Coating, top up kits can be purchased on our website or over the phone. We would recommend you treat your product once a year minimum. Twice a year if you want to maintain full protection.

About Timber: Natural timber will always want to move. It’s going to expand and shrink as the temperature and humidity changes in your home and outside, rest assured it won’t change drastically. Small hairline splits may occur as your product ages, this is completely normal and is regarded as part of the timbers natural beauty. As the seasons change you may see some movement in your product, again this is completely normal.

Air-dried oak: Your product has been made using Air-dried timber. This is has been seasoned for outdoor conditions. Do not keep exterior products indoors.

If you need any help or advise on how to maintain your product please contact us or consult your care guide.

Product Description: Free Standing House Signs

Free Standing Wooden House Sign Sizes:

Traditional stunning free standing house signs, made to order in the UK. These wooden house signs are made by hand, from scratch, using locally-sourced Superior Grade English Oak, all in our Surrey Hills workshop.

We use the very finest English Oak, meaning our house signs are made to the highest of standards. The timber is hand-selected by us to make sure it is clean and perfect for manufacturing into beautiful engraved wooden house signs. All of our free-standing house signs come with one or two solid oak posts and in two sizes, giving you the flexibility for us to create you a house sign that suits your requirements.

Sign Sizes:

We offer two sizes in our standard house sign range. Our Small – 10cm tall and our Large sign – 20cm tall, allowing you to either have your house name engraved on one or two lines depending on how you want your house sign to look. The length of the sign plaque will vary due to the amount of lettering that is required. We will always allow plenty of room either side of your lettering to give your house sign a well-proportioned look. All of our sign plaques are 2.5cm thick and feature carved lettering 5cm tall – Please see the dimensions below:

1 or 2 Posts:

You can choose either a single post or two oak posts to have your sign mounted. The sizes of the posts are 5cm square by 1.2 metres long, so there is plenty of timber to bury into the ground to secure your wooden free-standing house sign. If you require longer posts, please let us know at the time of order.

Personalise Your Free Standing House Sign:

Our oak signs include your engraving. You can then choose to leave the lettering plain or have it paint filled. We offer White, Black and Grey. The paint application we supply is three coats of water-resistant acrylic paint.

Finish:

As with everything we do here at Make Me Something Special, we have spent the time researching and sourcing the perfect materials available. Each oak sign is handmade from one piece of Air Dried Superior Grade English Oak. This Timber is perfectly seasoned and adjusted for outdoor conditions. You can choose to leave your sign untreated, finished in Superior Danish Oil or our low maintenance Diamond Coating finish. If you choose untreated your product will weather to a pale silver more quickly. Danish Oil will not only treat the timber but also bring out the timbers natural colour. This has a UV filter to protect the timber but it does require regular upkeep. 2 – 4 times a year to keep it looking its best. Diamond Coating is more glossy but a lot more harder wearing and only requires a top up once a year, however this depend on the weather and where the product is placed. We would recommend twice a year if you want full protection. Top up kits can be ordered over the phone or on our website – see here. 

Assembled or Unassembled:

You can choose to have your free standing house sign fully assembled ready to place or flat packed. Fitting the sign to the post is a very simple process requiring only a couple of bolts. With fully assembled signs, screw fitting holes will be covered over with solid oak plugs.

Placing your Sign:

When it come to place your sign, we recommend you place 30 – 50cm into the ground and fill with concrete for stability and security reasons.
