Lrg Post Sign Survey



Here at Stetts Signs, we've literally done hundreds of Sign Surveys. From Elevations to Plot Plans to Pole & Tenant Signs. One thing we don't do is fill out customer Forms. We know all what is needed for Sign Surveys so well, it is a waist of time to fill out Forms. We go better by providing either Sign Survey Drawings or Picture Drawings, showing all the relevant information required. Every Sign Company we have been hired to do Surveys for has come back and said we have provided the Best Survey work they ever got, and were very impressed with our work. None have ever been dissatisfied except once when they forgot to ask us to get something surveyed. Surveys include: Detailed Pictures, Drawings or Picture Drawings, Details & Measurements of Single or Dbl. Faced, Retainer Moldings, Visible Openings- to calculate Face Cut-Size, Face Material Type, Graphics Type, Mounting Type, Pole Sizes & Distance between, Wall Thickness if possible, Height off Grnd. & OAH, Pole J-Boxes, Photocells or Timeclock info. if needed, Sign-Band Measurements, Color Similar Matches- PMS or S.W., Hinge-Face or Slide, Set-Backs- if needed, anything else important noticed, & Clerical Labor. Surveys Exclude: Opening Cabinets, Face-Thickness, Interior Condition, Electrical Internal Parts, Drivers, Ballasts, Number of Lamps, Wires, Circuits, Voltage or Amps Draw, Pole Plug-Welds, Cap Rings and High up Plates. All these items are part of a Service Call & take a lot more labor for multiple signs. They can be purchased separately at Extra Costs approx. equal to a Service Call for each sign.

This is when you would want to apply for a Variance to see if you can get an Exception to the Codes for your New Signage. You need someone to be able to attend a Variance Hearing or Counsel Meeting to competently describe your needs and requirements for the Code Exceptions you are requesting to the Review Board to try to get approval for your New Signs.

PennDot Off Premise Sign Permits
Red Hexagon Background



Notoriously difficult, the PennDot Off Premise Sign Permit is required whenever a Sign is not on your primary property along a State Road, Rout or Highway. The best example of this would be- Billboards. They advertise for a business that is not at the Billboards location. Another example is a Remote Sign. A good example of a Remote Sign, is a Directional type Sign on a Rented or Leased property along a State Road, Rout or Highway, which could be several miles away directing traffic to the main location. Such as maybe a Church. Some things you have to be careful of, is to fill out the Applications many pages very accurately and completely. Also knowing certain Regulations like Distance between Off Premise Signage, Led/Flashing Copy Sign Regulations and Special Setback Regulations along State Roads, Routs and Highways is very important. These types of Permits are a Huge Hassle even for Experienced Professionals like us. We have successfully dealt with PennDot on several occasions and have Successfully Obtained Permits for our customers. Of which, they were very pleased to get the job done right after their own failed attempts to get the proper Permits approved.  We got them Approved!
