Commercial Sign Inspections
Commercial sign inspectors conduct inspections of all permanent commercial signs for structural, electrical and placement compliance.
Prior to any construction or alteration to a sign or any part of a sign, it is important to ensure that a permit has been obtained prior to starting any work.
City inspectors review the following types of signs and sign-related work:
- signs attached to a building/structure that are installed outdoors or indoors (i.e. when visible from a public right-of-way)
- permanent free-standing signs
- air supported signs
- structural components of signs and methods of attachment
- electrical connections
- placement where signs project on private/public property
Note: The above list is not inclusive, nor is it intended to exclude any other type of installation/construction of signs.
