How to Decide Between Sandblasted Redwood & HDU Signs

To some, Sandblasted Redwood and High Density Urethane (HDU) signs may seem and appear quite similar.

But the truth is, the materials themselves as well as the benefits of each are as different from each other as a fine red wine is from a fine white.

"But if the materials are so different, how do I know which material is right for me?"

Let's talk about Sandblasted Redwood Signs first.

Redwood lumber is a lightweight but strong material that boasts a natural beauty. TheSignChef uses only select grade, clear heart redwood on all of their Sandblasted Redwood Signs. We offer 1" and 1.5" finished dimension Redwood, and our standard blast depths are 1/4" to 3/8" varying to the wood itself.

TheSignChef uses beautiful redwood that is:
  • Knot-free
  • Flat grain blasted
  • Solid and Strong
  • Beautifully Carved with Raised Grain

Reasons why some people prefer Redwood Signs

  • Redwood lumber is a very natural material.
  • Since each piece of wood blasts differently, every redwood sign is completely unique.
  • Redwood is a very strong sign surface that is rarely affected by the wind. While HDU is durable, it is lighter and more flexible than wood. Windy weather can bend and damage long, thin HDU signs stretched between two posts.

Some people come to TheSignChef searching specifically for Sandblasted Redwood Signs but then opt to use Sandblasted HDU Foam Signs instead. HDU foam is a flexible, durable material and is much thicker than most types of foam. It was designed specifically to make signs, and can be made to look dimensional just like redwood signs.

Our HDU signs come in 1", 1.5", 2", 3" or 4" finished dimension. Because HDU is a synthetic material, sandblasting each piece produces a predictable result every time

Reasons why some people prefer HDU Signs

  • We live in a world that is "going green" more and more with each day. So let's face it…some people choose HDU signs over Redwood to save trees!
  • HDU Foam Signs are lower in price than Sandblasted Redwood Signs. The material itself is cheaper, and manufacturing costs are lower because the material itself is easier to shape than wood.
  • As a petroleum based material, HDU is naturally waterproof. This means that HDU lasts longer than wood and doesn't need to be replaced as often.
