When it comes to addresses on historic houses or new houses in historic neighborhoods, I try to relate back to when Washington houses were issued addresses in and around 1870. I incorporate these house numbers in the transom or elsewhere in the traditional manner.  The House Number Lab is a historically accurate vinyl decal company that won’t break the bank to bring your house back into historical context where it should be.

Great DIY experience. The results look awesome and authentically “classic”. I’m very pleased and highly recommend them.

Thanks for the numbers. I am a restoration and remodeling contractor in Berkeley and looked into finding gold leaf numbers several times, over the last 15 years, with no luck. Now that I have found you I am determined to install a bunch of these.

We were thinking about getting transom house numbers but had no idea what our options were. You were the first thing that popped up in Google and I couldn’t believe my luck. We decided to go with you because of the quality of the work and the options.
