Did you know that lighting accounts for approximately 40% of the average commercial business’s electricity use? This includes all indoor and outdoor lighting, as well as the power pumped into your lighted signs.
But if your lighted signs aren’t working right, whether it’s due to loose connections, loose bulbs, or software issues, they could consume more than their fair share of energy.
According to one report by the Sign Research Foundation, which surveyed more than 100,000 US consumers, Baltimore businesses are losing thousands of sales opportunities each year due to one recurring visual acuity issue: “driving by and failing to find a business because its signage was too small or unclear.”
In fact, nearly half (49.7%) of survey respondents said they faced this visual acuity issue at least once in the last year. And when those consumers failed to find the shops they intended to visit, they took their business elsewhere.
Although sign design plays a big part in increasing sign conspicuity, even the most eye-catching graphics and color combos fall flat when the sign is in disrepair. Burned out bulbs, missing or damaged parts, chipped paint, ripped vinyl, and faded sign faces all make your message more likely to fly under the radar.
But you can eliminate this costly visual acuity issue with a single phone call. By scheduling routine sign repair and maintenance, you’ll know your sign will always look its best and stand out among Baltimore’s crowded signscape.
According to Section 450.6 of Baltimore County’s Zoning Regulations, “All signs, including structural framework or supporting elements, shall be securely erected and maintained in a safe and presentable condition at all times through replacing defective, missing or damaged parts; cleaning; painting; or other acts necessary for proper upkeep.”
Failure to do so may result in civil penalties of $500 for each sign posted, enforceable in accordance with Article 3, Title 6 of the city code.
Fortunately, you don’t have to decide between paying a penalty or wasting a work day on sign repair and maintenance. Our sign repair service covers all your bases, guaranteeing great results and 100% code compliance, no matter the size or style of your signage system. And whether you need a one-shot sign repair or you want to automate upkeep for life, it only takes one phone call.
