House Names and Numbers

11 October, 2009 – 9:00 pm

Why not add something specially hand carved to your house.

A new name plate or number doesn’t have to be expensive, for as little as £20 you could have a bespoke number carved for your house.

Obviously hand carved stone house names tend to be a little more expensive, but bear in mind the impact that these have on the look of your property. It is something that you as the customer have a role in the design of.  They are long lasting-I have just restored a 150yr old date stone-still clear after all this time!!

I appreciate that we are not here for 150yrs, but it is a legacy for the next generation.

The prices are charged per letter or number and can be carved in a variety of styles. These can be finished with a range of colours, or go that little bit further and have the carved figures gilded with 23 and 3/4 gold leaf.

The Forest of Dean Sandstone and Delabole Slate don’t need to be painted or gilded to stand out-it is entirely up to you!

The limestone that I use is Tetbury from Veizeys Quarry, or Portland Limestone from Dorset. Although these generally need a colour in the letters or numbers in order to stand out.
