We are Licensed Sign Hangers in NYC & NJ
Every company in NYC would be better off if they had a sign outside that helped bring in new customers. However, before you can hope to benefit from this kind of marketing asset, you’re going to need the proper permits. Installing a sign without the necessary permits could put you at risk for fines that may take away any of the value of your sign display.
Fortunately, Metro Sign Services Company doesn’t just design, create, install, repair, and maintain signs. Our expertise also extends to what permits you need to have a sign and not run into any legal problems.
Sign Permit Services in NYC
For an advertising sign like a billboard, zoning laws must be consulted first. Usually, you need a PW2 permit. The laws are different across every district, though. In some, they’re not even allowed. If you were to accidentally violate one of these laws, you’d most likely have to pay a fine of at least $5,000 for each infringement.
Any storefront sign that’s more than six square feet must first be approved by NYC’s Department of Business. Then, before it can be installed, a sign permit (by NYC licensed sign hanger) must be issued. In some districts, even signs smaller than six feet require a permit prior to installation. Lighted signs also require additional permits, whether they’re an advertising or storefront version.
The entire processes involved in receiving a permit for any of these signs can be a bit complicated. That is why many people seek out professional help from Metro Sign Services – an expert in recognizing and understanding sign permit and sign installation needs.
