MHN vs. The Big Box Store

MHN vs. The Big Box Store

Not all house numbers are created equal. Ours are made from 3/8" solid, recycled aluminum. We include a handy drilling template made just for you for a beautiful installation. You'll get step-by-step instructions and concealed hardware for a subtle and sophisticated floating effect. Our products are handcrafted in Tucson, to enjoy for years to come.

Big box stores may have options, but watch out! Theirs are often hollow, flimsy, and lightweight - which you can only see when you turn them over. Many have hardware that can be seen from the front, which diminishes the quality of the installation.
