House Signs made using English Oak Wood

english oak

English Oak is a popular choice of material when it comes to house signs due to its exquisite look along with its durability and strength, leaving it to be an excellent investment as it will withstand weather conditions.

Despite this type of wood being durable, maintenance is required due to it not being thoroughly water resistant and should water absorb into any cracks; this can lead to fungal growth, causing the grains to blacken. English Oak comes in a variety of colours which tends to be light white to a medium brown.

If you’re looking for a house sign that is immune or less likely to be damaged by weathering, then we recommend you take a look at other materials because house signs made from stone are going need to a lot less maintenance than wood and will last much longer.
