Public Housing Sign Monuments

Public housing sign monuments are a typical example of our work. Chapel Hill, NC came to us looking to unify (9) locations for public housing in their City.  As with any City project, there are budget and design factors to consider.

This City had a sign structure height requirement and maximum square footage for the graphics area. We came up with and suggested the falling design to complement each community:

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we brought the work home with us and hand-carved each of the (9) sign monuments in a faux stone pattern:

Once all the units were carved, we went back to the studio and applied hard coat and top coat stucco. We then hand-finished each unit to look realistic by accents each individual stone element.

Sign Monument Cost Guideline

Sign Monument Cost – What To Expect.

The most common question our Sales Department receives is…

Question: “What is the cost of one of your monument signs?”

Answer: “It Depends On What You Want.”

We will listen to your needs by first asking the stage and scope of your project. Do you have an established community, but the developer didn’t think about a sign? Or do you have a sign that is outdated or damaged?

Ask yourself – “Do I want something fantastic, something nice, or just something?”

We house the best designers, the best technology, and the best solutions in the industry. Be open in discussing your budget and your needs and we will deliver the best solution available.

Need cost examples? To get an idea of neighborhood entrance sign monument costs, let us start by looking at some specific projects of real-life sign monuments.

This was new unit to replace an existing dilapidated sign. It has double sided graphics, and the street address on one column. This sign monument cost was around $8k delivered.

And here is an example of a brand new community development that just broke ground. We designed this sign monument to match the architecture of the housing, and faux matched the stacked stone that was common on the construction. This brand new double-sided entrance monument was around $14k delivered with the faux stacked stone match:

In this example, the community needed a modest-sized monument but the faux brick MUST match the leasing office the sign would be installed next to. They sent us a camera phone picture of the brick, and we matched it dead on. This example ran around $9k delivered with single sided graphics.

Can We Use Or Modify What We Have?

While every entrance sign monument is a ‘new project,’ we can of course integrate (recycle) any existing sign elements if at all possible to save costs. Send us photography of what you have on site, and we will gladly recommend any cost-saving options.

Install Yourself And Save!

While we can arrange for installation, we highly recommend doing it yourself as it is SO SIMPLE! You are saving by buying direct from the sign monument manufacturer, why not save more by installing yourself? This community HOA got together for a couple hours to plant this in place without a hitch:
