Hire a Pro To Install That Signage

Friday, November 22, 2013

freestanding signDon’t be a DIY. Don’t be a do-it-yourselfer, especially with your signage. It’s important to have a professional sign manufacturer install your sign for several reasons. First, he or she can “sneak a peek” at the type of signage you’re planning and provide feedback both on sign maintenance and installation. Second, even with freestanding signs, it’s best to have them professionally installed. These professionals install several signs a day, and hundreds in a week. They know how to position them so they will be as safe as possible against stormy weather. They also take into consideration the drive-by factor, the property size and shape, the easements and the town rules on signage size and installation. If at any time they have a concern, they should voice it to you so that you can provide direction on the next steps to take.

Be sure your signage professional has experience in the installation method you select. Signs can be mounted to the side of a building, fence, wall or door by drilling holes and hanging the sign. They can also be mounted to a pole or to a mounting stand. Larger signs that are specially designed for your business may have many other requirements. For example, a monument sign requires ground to be prepared ahead of time to be sure that the monument sign can withstand the contraction and expansion of the ground during freezing and thawing in the winter. Vinyl banners also need careful attention when being installed inside and outside. Inside, they need a sturdy anchor like a railing or a wall. Outside, the installer needs to check the wind factor and design a sign that will be supported against the wind and other elements. Supports can be rope, web mesh, pole pockets or grommets. Your professional sign manufacturer can be a wealth of information and service, if you let him know your objectives and your needs. He’ll help make your job easier.
