Black Granite

Granite House Signs are maintenance free and durable in frost and heat. The lettering is engraved or sandblasted into the stone and then we paint the letters. You can choose your letter style from hundreds of fonts. The letter colour does not have to be white, we have a big range of colours.

Dark Grey Granite House Sign

Granite is a fine coarse-grained crystalline igneous rock with so many different colour formations! All our granite signs have a polished finish and are approx 10 or 15mm thick.  We do offer 20mm 30mm and 50mm thicknesses also in Kerala Green, Classic Dark Grey, Black, Celtic and Bahama Blue.

The black, Celtic grey, classic dark grey, Kerula Green and Bahama Blue granites can be cut to sizes up to 600mm x 400mm. The rest in sizes up to 295mm x 600mm.

As these are a lighter weight slate sign, the easiest way to fix it is with an exterior tile adhesive. However, if you prefer we will drill holes in the slate.

 

 

 

 

We can include a simple image on the Slate sign. It is essential to choose a bold image as it is impossible to sandblast very fine lines. We have a huge range of images for you to chose from.

Slate is a fantastic material for a house sign. Rustic Slate is a thinner Slate at 6-8mm thick so easier to mount.

These rustic edge slate house signs are excellent value for money. They are made with a rough edge finish. The letters are carved into the slate by sand blasting and then painted with a very tough and durable external paint.

 

The softer colours such as Farrow & Ball Purbeck Stone or Lichen look very effective on this type of slate house sign.

Hello

I just wanted to say thank you for our new sign – it’s exactly what we wanted and is absolutely perfect. We’ve just been out to put it up on the handy telegraph pole at the end of our drive – and I’ve attached a photo so you can see how brilliant it looks in its new home.

Many thanks!

Valerie
