Sign Permitting and Site Surveys

Sign Permitting and Site Surveys

Your sign design is important, but so is following the law. Most exterior signs require proper permits. Different cities and towns in Indiana may have different permitting requirements and ordinances too. This means that the permitting process is fairly complicated. At Schaefer Sign Works, we work with you through the entire process. Our professional team has experience with permitting, so we make this difficult task simple and take the hassle off of you.

We’ll Work With the Right People

We work with local officials and check with local authorities before we start creating your sign. We’ll make sure that your sign is right for your business and fits local rules and regulations. Even if you don’t own the property where your business is located, we’ll work with the property owner or landlord to make sure that your sign fits their requirements too.

Surveying Your Property

Once we have the proper permits and permissions, we’ll begin a survey of your property. We’ll take the important parameters of your local ordinances and use those in our site survey. We’ll look at things like elevations, dimensions, and your facility to create a sign that will help your business stand out, but stay within required specifications. We can even look at the distance between your sign and major roadways or other high-traffic areas to make sure that your signs are being seen.

We also consider what types of signs your business needs. Depending on what you do, where you do it and who you are as a business, we’ll choose signage that works best for you and your location. Of course, at the end of the day, you’re in charge. Most importantly, we make your signs to suit your idea and your vision.
