Information on metal house signs

Giving your house a sign is a top priority when settling into a new community. Living on a street where people value the community and what each individual represents is why you chose that street in the first place. And therefore, decorating your house with a fitting sign to display your house number, family or slogan is the perfect way to integrate and feel at home.

At Signomatic, there are plenty of options for you. We are an well established sign maker offering everything, from acrylic to cast metal signs.

This article will explore why metal signs are right for you, especially if you are looking for an exterior sign.

What to look for in your metal house sign

It is not always easy to choose a fitting house sign for your residence, but some tips can make it easier. When shopping for your perfect sign, consider these three elements:

  • Materials
  • Design
  • Quality

  • Let’s look at them a little closer:


Settling on a metal sign is one of the best choices when considering the material. Cast metal is durable and can withstand all weather conditions. And although you might think it is a heavy option. We assure you it is not. We offer 1,6 mm thick metal signs that have a protective laminate, a perfect coating when moving into a rainy area.


House signs should be customised. When moving into a new home, you have gone through all the effort of bonds, paperwork, legalities, and the list goes on. Putting a plaque up to represent your investment is a big deal. Make sure that you choose a design that suits your personality and speaks your truth. This way, you will love it forever. 


Do we even need to say more? In our instant lives, we have realised how important quality is. And no need to worry here. A Signomatic house sign is a superior choice. We only use superior materials in our production. And so, when we say it is meant to last, we mean it. 

How to know if a metal sign is for you

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you bring up your appliances that are 10+ years old in conversation? 
  • Do you want to place your house number outdoors?
  • Do you want something more versatile?

If you answered yes to any of them, you know that the metal sign is the type of home sign you should go after.

Benefits of metal house signs

Metal home signs are durable, can be placed indoors and outdoors, and can match your style and personality thanks to the variety of available customisation options. For example, from cast iron to steel, a metal house stand will fight the elements alongside the walls of your home. On top of this, metal signs are great for indoor use, too, as they have this rustic and industrial design that matches contemporary abodes.

Manufactured from strong, durable materials

Opting for metal house plaques is a long-term investment, and no matter the climate – rain or sunshine – your sign will survive. And so, if the lifespan is a major consideration for you and your family, you can be sure a sign will probably become a family heirloom. Traditional signs are durable and will require little maintenance in the long run. 

Whatever your house colour or style, we’ve got you covered

Although metal house plaques have a rigid lifespan, they are pretty versatile when it comes to the design that you had in mind. Every household is unique, and so should be your sign. You can choose from various shapes, colours, finishes, and fonts, including raised lettering. Our team of experts can take you through what is available. Your taste should be honoured even when it comes to the entrance of your property. 

Metal house signs are an all-round win

All in all, you will never be disappointed with a sturdy, all-season sign to welcome your visitors to your home. There is plenty of design and styles to choose from. Your taste is of high importance to us, and therefore, we will assist in your signage needs. 

If you can’t find anything to your taste on our website, contact us to discuss the various options or simply what you have in mind. We as a sign maker help you find a modern plaque, spark a house number’s inspiration or customise a sign that will bring a smile to your face every time you get to your door. 


Is cheaper the most expensive option, after all?

Bespoke signs are affordable if you consider all the exterior. Yet, when you hang a cast metal sign on the walls of your house, you can be sure these are made to last for 7-10 years. So, in short, by investing in a metal house sign, you not only make one of the most economical choices but also pick one of the most durable types of house signs too.

Does Signomatic have all-season signs available?

That's true. Most of our signs will withstand the weather all year round. Remember that metal signs (aluminium signs) are the most durable signs you can opt for. But, if you're unsure that the sign you chose can withstand harsh climatic conditions, we recommend getting in touch with a Signomatic consultant.

Can I customise a metal sign? 

Yes, we have the machinery in-house and can create house signs according to your needs and wants. Just customise your sign as much or as little as you desire. You can add, for example, raised lettering, among others. This way, you don't have to worry about letting your creative self loose.

Is it easier to choose a ready-made design?

That depends on the type of design you need. If you need something extremely unique or extravagant, creating a design alone might be the best choice. But if you need a design immediately - then, yes, a ready-made design can be the way to go.
