Cast metal house signs individually made to your personal requirements.

Traditional house signs are first moulded by hand in foundry sand to produce a negative of your chosen sign shape, house name and motif. Once the mould is ready the molten aluminium at approx 750 C can then be gently poured into the mould, when the casting has solidified, it is then released from the mould.  At this point you can see the detail of the raised/embossed sign lettering, outside border and motif, producing a high-quality solid cast aluminium sign.

The embossed text/lettering and outside border is cast as one piece, formed when the molten metal flows into the sand mould, producing a solid cast sign.  The text/lettering sizes available are 1″, 1.5″, 2″, & 3″ we use the largest that looks best on your sign, should we have any difficulty then we will contact you.  The sign is then fettled, a process of grinding, filing, sanding and working the surface, before being carefully hand-painted.

The Ridgequest signs are available in six standard background colours with a further five optional extra lighter shade colours, our text and border colours come in four choices.  Alternatively, we can do any colours you wish as an optional extra.  We have a range of sculptured house sign motifs that are embossed and like the lettering are part of the solid casting.  Should you wish to have a motif on your sign, then please phone or email to check if the motif will fit your chosen sign.

All our signs include stainless steel fixing screws, wall plugs and vial of matching paint for screw heads plus free delivery. We also provide the option on having your road – street name on these house number signs as well as the sign number (select this option in the order drop-down menu).
