How Decorative Street Signs Can Enhance Your Community

Monday October 15, 2018

If you're faced with the task of maintaining the aesthetic of your community, don't underestimate the value of decorative street signs. From stop signs and speed limit signs, to street name signs and community message boards; decorative signage can be the perfect addition to your community. They inject a new consistent themed style into the community that's simply not achieved with generic signs. So, why exactly should you use decorative signs in your community?


Uniform Appearance

Using decorative street signs, you can create a uniform and consistent appearance throughout your community. Some HOAs and developers take the easy route by installing a variety of different low-cost signs throughout their community. Unfortunately, this results in a mismatching array of signs that don't create any visual value for your community. To prevent this from happening with your community, choose decorative street signage in a single, uniformed style. When the signs in your community are consistent, it creates a more attractive landscape that reflects positively upon on your community, regardless of age. 


Improved Aesthetics

When compared to traditional, "u-channel signage", decorative street signs offer a much higher level of aesthetics. Not only are they are made of premium materials that will last longer, you are able to customize the designs to add a unique look that aligns with your community's theme or location. It is common to customize street name blades, frames and scrolls, finishes, and matching entrance and wayfinding packages.

Increased Property Value

Decorative street signs can even increase the value of properties in your community. When prospective buyers drive through a well-manicured community with upscale amenities like custom decorative signage, it may not jump out at them, but a higher-end appeal will certainly have an impact on perceived value.


Breakaway Compliance

If your community includes a mix of private and public roads, you'll need to ensure that they comply with the FHWA-DOT breakaway pole regulations. On public roads, for example, the FHWA-DOT requires street signs to feature a safety mechanism, such as the ability to break away, to reduce the risk of injury if a driver collides with them. This generally isn't required for private roads. But for public roads, you'll need to choose street signs that comply with the FHWA-DOT's rules, such as breakaway compliance. The good news is that you can breakaway decorative streets that follow the FHWA-DOT's required specifications.
