Subdivision entrance signs typically include the name of the community, such as Braemar, Sorrento Springs or Mayfield. Other subdivision entrance signs advertise the name of an apartment complex, such as The Overlooks at Parkside or Lone Tree Townhomes.
Subdivision entrance signs are commonly accented with routed avonite or corian plaques. Dimensional lettering is common. Many contain aluminum, painted acrylic, PVC or sign foam lettering. Dimensional lettering is also available in plaque form. Wooden signs are also popular, and to preserve their decor, materials such as urethane and western red cedar are often used. Additionally, wooden signs are painted with durable, weatherproof paints. These signs are commonly mounted on stone, brick, wood, metal or trellises designed to provide an airy look.
Subdivision entrance signs are used to advertise the names of communities and leave lasting impressions on visitors or those looking to purchase homes in the neighborhood. They act as convenient landmarks for those travelling to neighborhoods for the first time, and an apartment or townhouse complex owner may utilize a sign to reflect positive aspects of the property.
Many subdivision entrance sign makers offer packages to lower the total expenses associated with the purchase of the signs. Some include sign maintenance and the acquisition of permits along with the construction and installation of the signs.
