Safety

Sign removal is a job that you should outsource to professionals. This is not a DIY project–especially if electrical signage is involved. When it’s time for you to look for a team to safely remove your exterior building signage, you need to make sure that the professionals you choose are fully bonded and insured licensed contractors. 

By choosing to work with professionals like Starfish Signs, you can ensure that your old signs are removed safely and in a manner that is up to local codes and ordinances. Our technicians will be able to remove your signs with 

minimal damage to your facade and without endangering themselves, pedestrian traffic, or other tenants in your building. Our trained specialists will also be able to disconnect your electric signs from their circuits in a way that is compliant with local codes and ordinances. 

Facade Restoration

Aesthetics

The ghost-outlines of long-gone business signs on a fading facade can be a dreary foreshadow for any tenant. (Here’s a classic song that colorfully makes this point https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJRx4QU37DM). As a building owner, property manager, or commercial building association, having a pristine facade will inspire more confidence in the businesses involved and be more inviting for your customers. It is in everyone’s best interest to upkeep commercial building storefronts by repairing and restoring facades–especially after a sign removal.

Your exterior building signs are usually anchored to the front of your building. When your signs are removed, there will be holes left in your storefront from the sign’s anchors. If your sign was also electrical, its electrical conduits will need to be cared for. When Starfish Signs handles your sign removal, we make sure that your storefront is properly repaired. 

Starfish Signs has experience restoring facades of all types: stucco, concrete, metal, brick, wood, and tile just to name a few. We have the tools and the know-how to properly restore your business facade to pristine condition. 

Liability

If you are renting your business space, your lease agreement will likely hold you accountable for the condition of your facade after signage removal. You could face extra fees for an improperly restored facade. You can save yourself a lot of headaches down the road by having your facade repaired as part of your sign removal. 

Conclusion

When it is time for you to remove your exterior business signage and restore the underlying facade, you can count on specialists from Starfish Signs to handle every aspect of your removal. We would love to help you with your signage needs. Contact us today!
