SIGN INSTALLATION SURVEY
Before signs are installed, removed, or altered, a site survey can be useful – or even required – as a way to make sure that your sign can be placed safely and in accordance with all local laws. We closely examine the site of your potential sign and create a report to help guide the fabrication and installation process.
As sign professionals at Blue Dot Signs, our knowledge of sign manufacturing and permit needs in NJ allows us to create accurate, detailed surveys to meet any building code requirements. We can also use these surveys to provide recommendations for the plans and design of your sign.
For any large signage project, a site survey by a professional is an important first step. We collect essential data during a survey which will show areas of opportunity and any potential challenges with your sign before fabrication begins. This makes it possible to make any changes and prepare your site for the final installation. During a site survey, we will create a report detailing:
A sign survey will also examine various factors that impact the readability of the sign. We consider the viewing angles, the distance between the sign and the viewer, and how long a viewer will be exposed to the sign while passing.
The survey will help guide next steps in terms of design needs. The comprehensive overview of the site also makes it possible to develop a plan for installation. With these details, we can provide a more accurate estimate of the total cost up front for budgeting.
Outdoor signs are the ones that most generally need a site survey, especially when they are larger. We often perform surveys for signs such as:
A site survey can also be required for sign removal or if you will be making changes to an existing sign that can impact viewers or the local landscape.
Even if your sign does not require a site survey per local building regulations, it can still be a helpful step in choosing the best signage for your business. We can assist you in determining if a survey is recommended or required for the type of sign you plan to install.
