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.

Pros

  • Durable
  • Hard
  • Heavy

Cons

  • Not completed waterproof
  • Cutting trees down unnecessarily results in loss of habitat for animal species and may increase the likelihood of flooding in local areas.
