A good strategy is choosing a wall or other location that is visible from multiple angles, as well as making sure your sign is tall enough or installed high enough to be visible from multiple locations. One survey found that over 81 percent of potential customers become frustrated when signs are too small to read. Letter sizing matters! Letter size determines how far away your message can be read.

Site Survey

Let’s start with conducting a site survey. There are several factors to consider for signage: sign regulations, the size of your signs and the amount of weight your walls and overhangs can support. The type of material plays an important role and are required for the permitting process.

Heavy Equipment

 Installing any sign requires the right tools, knowledge and skills. This may require using large pieces of equipment such as bucket trucks, scissor lifts, ladders, cranes, and sometimes excavators. These overly large vehicles can require lots of space and perhaps several parking spaces and level ground. Safety is always a priority. Installing outdoor signs require different considerations and multiple factors. These all need lots of operating space while ensuring the safety of our team members and those on the ground.


Installing exterior signage often requires dry weather, and little to no wind. Another factor in installing and anchoring, is the sign’s ability to withstand extreme weather conditions. CCS professional designers know which kinds of materials are best and which are most durable. However, there are times mother nature intervenes and its beyond our control.
