Hey there. I’m currently doing a turnaround on a big park (150+ lots).
Typically for entrance signs I will do some type of Vinyl with aluminum and it looks just fine and is cheap (under or around 1,000). For this park, I was considering perhaps doing a “Monument Sign” of sorts, and wanted to know if this is something you guys have done and would recommend? The point would be to get a better appraisal years down the line, but would it be worth the x10 expense?
I was quoted 7,400 for a sign similar to this monument below, it’s about 6ft tall, plus shipping and labor, it’s likely going to be around 10,000 or slightly more all in. I would do some landscaping around it to make it look better than in this picture, but this is the gist.
Make sure that – whatever you do – it cannot be defaced easily. I guarantee that some idiot will spray paint F*** Y** on that sign within the first six months. You need materials that can have paint removed easily, which means no stone or sandblasted wood. If you want to go metal and surfaces that are non-porous, then that’s fine. Otherwise you’ll have a $7,500 sign that says F*** Y** in perpetuity.
