Address Plaque Cost


How Much Does an Address Plaque Cost?

 
low costWood Address Plaque: $6-$20average costStone Address Plaque: $30-$90high costMetal Address Plaque: $20-$300

An address plaque spells out home addresses on mailboxes, fences or the sides of houses, making the houses easier to identify for mail carriers, delivery and service people, and guests. They can be plain, complex, fanciful, elegant or just numbers and letters attached to a mailbox or fence.

Typical costs:

  • A complete address plaque costs $1.80-$300. The plaque to which the address letters and numbers are attached costs $6-$300. Letters and numbers cost $0.58-$50 each. The cost varies based on the number of plaques required to spell out the address and the material used to make the plaques. Cheaper plaques are usually made of wood, lightweight cheap metal and stickers; moderate plaques are made of stone, heavier metal and plastic; the most expensive plaques are made of solid metals like brass, expensive stones like granite and marble, and solid vinyl.
  • Metal address plaques cost $20-$300. Individual letters and numbers[1] cost $1.28-$50 each; plaques with or without numbers integral numbers cost $20-$130. Thin, cheap metals like aluminum and nickel cost the least, while quarter-inch or thicker metals like brass and copper, and chrome finishes cost the most. For example, a simple arch-top plaque made of cast zinc from Home Depot costs $29.98, while a cast aluminum plaque[2] with a leaping marlin decoration costs $87 at Sears. A designer cast aluminum plaque finished in antique bronze or copper available from Frontgate, which homeowners custom order with house number and address, costs $169-$295, depending on the size.
  • Stone address plaques cost $30-$90; they must be custom ordered so the lettering can be engraved or painted; Home Depot[3] sells stone address plaques including solid granite in a variety of colors[4] ; Plow & Hearth[5] sells a crushed stone address plaque for about $80.
  • Wood address plaques cost $6-$20. Wood numbers cost $3-$8 apiece and can be purchased from Amazon[6] and other retailers. Homeowners often attach brass or steel numbers and letters to the wooden plaques.
  • Solid vinyl and plastic address plaques cost $25-$100. Individual letters and numbers cost $2-$4; plaques cost $16.50-$30. Home improvement stores like Lowe's[7] and Sears[8] sell vinyl address plaques.
  • Individual letters and numbers cost $0.58-$3 each, depending on the number of stickers required to spell out the house number and address. Cost of stickers varies by the toughness of the paper or plastic and whether the stickers are reflective. For example, Home Depot[9] sells reflective and utilitarian sticker address plaques.

What should be included:
  • Address plaques should include either mounting holes (for screws or nails) or adhesive backing.
  • Address plaques that have been custom-ordered should include the complete address as requested by the customer affixed to the plaque or sign. Custom address plaques should include mounting holes or brackets.
Additional costs:
  • Mounting hardware for address plaques usually consists of screws or nails, and costs $1-$5.
  • Custom address plaques must be shipped from the manufacturer to the homeowner. Shipping costs about $6-$25, depending on the size and weight of the plaque.
Discounts:
  • Address plaque kits[10] that include letters and numbers, plus mounting hardware can be cheaper than buying the plaque and numbers and letters individually.
  • Homeowners with woodworking expertise can either purchase materials or use scrap wood to create an address plaque or letters and numbers. Lowe's offers a how-to article[11] for building a wooden address plaque.
Shopping for an address plaque:
  • Before purchasing an address plaque, decide where the plaque will be placed. Stickers work well on mailboxes, but will fall off of stucco siding. Heavy metal and stone address plaques can be mounted onto fences or home siding, but should not be attached to mailboxes.
  • Choose a material that will not be damaged by rain or snow, or faded if the plaque will be mounted in an area that gets a lot of direct sunlight.
  • If the address plaque needs to be easily visible at night, consider purchasing a solar-lit address plaque; these are usually made of vinyl and sold as all-inclusive kits.
