Making Your Outdoor Signs Weatherproof

There are few better ways to enhance the look of your home, business, farm, or any other building by hanging a custom wooden sign outside of it. However, we understand that you may be concerned about your sign being out in the elements. We’re here to give you a few pointers that can help you ensure your sign is weatherproof for decades to come.

One of the easiest things you can do to protect your wooden signs from adverse weather conditions is by applying a water repellent preservative to its surface. The best thing about coating your sign with a water repellent solution is that it works in two ways. Not only does it protect the wood itself from rain, but it will also prolong the life of any paint you apply.

Speaking of paint, it is very important that each panel of wood be coated with an acrylic paint. This paint will protect your wooden sign in a few ways, but most importantly it will negate the effects of it being out in the sun. Your wood sign will fade over time if it is in direct sunlight, so panting it can ensure it lasts much longer than usual.

Finally, apply a wood sealer and your work should be done. These simple steps can go a long way towards protecting your wood signs, which is something you should always be concerned about with your investment. No one wants to get rid of a beautiful sign, especially one that has meaning to your home or business. Protect it today so you never have to!
