Traditionally house signs are made from stone which includes Slate, Welsh Slate, Marble, Sandstone, Yorkshire Stone, granite and limestone. When using signs made from stone, you are graced with beautiful natural carvings that you can treasure for a very long time. Stone signs will last through years and many weather conditions without much maintenance.

Metal signs can look modern and traditional with personal markings etched onto them; however, metal signs need maintaining as they don’t tend to last as long in most weathers.

Metal signs are more practical to use indoors at a company for example when marking office, kitchen and toilet doors. Once your sign has been chosen, its time to install it into the wall.

The most affordable and more accessible way to do this is to use vertical bonding adhesives. Applying vertical bonding adhesive to the back and the sides of your sign will allow you to fix the sign into place with minimal effort and will hold it securely in place.

You should be aware that if your sign is up to 10kg in weight, CT1 constructive adhesive would be best to use. If the sign is 10kg to 50kg, then Power Grand n Bond adhesive would be best to use to ensure there is a firm hold on your sign.
