If you’re planning on putting up new signage for your business, chances are you will need a sign permit. While some smaller signs don’t need a permit, most other large and outdoor building signs, such as monument signs, awnings, and LED signs, will require you to undergo the sign permitting process. The steps of sign permitting aren’t exceedingly difficult to accomplish, yet the average person may not be the most familiar with the necessary paperwork and information to get a sign permit approved. Here are three sources to find more information on sign permitting for your business so you can get a great new sign installed sooner!
Conduct Internet Research
An obvious place to start is online. Conducting your research on the internet brings up some relevant information quickly. However, it’s helpful to know what sort of inquiries to look up that will guide your search in the right direction. You can begin with searching “sign permits in” and enter your locality. The results should bring you to your local government office or department that handles matters dealing with building requirements, zoning ordinances and sign permitting. From there, you can follow more detailed instructions on applying for a sign permit.
Ask Local Business Owners
Another good place to look for some answers is to visit other local businesses or businesses with similar signage that you plan to install for your property. If you ask politely, many business owners are happy to tell you how they followed the sign permitting process. Plus, you’ll know they did it correctly because their final sign is up, although they could disclose any hiccups they may have encountered in the process. In that case, you’ll have gained some valuable insight as well.
