Branding your business is crucial to its marketing success. At Golden Gate, we know that all too well – we’ve been creating custom signage solutions for businesses since 1969. Putting a face to your business is what we do best. We take pride in making our work beautiful, effective and resilient. At a certain point, however, some of the maintenance responsibility falls on the shoulders of the business owner. We can’t be there day-in and day-out like you are, so here are some tips that’ll help make your sign last:

Guard Against Blistering Highs & Dangerous Lows:

Weather extremes can cause your sign to expand and contract, which, ultimately, will lead to cracks, tears and breakage. At Golden Gate, we’ll be sure to get all of the information about where your business is located so that we can apply the right precautionary materials to your sign. Adding plastic or metal trim, for example, will prevent water and snow from seeping into the sign.

Proper Installation:

Talk about important! At Golden Gate, we promise to install your sign correctly the first time – there’s no question about that. Over time, however, it’s your responsibility to keep an eye on your signage. After a big storm, for example, always inspect the integrity of the space around your signage to ensure that nothing has compromised it. And if you see something wrong – if anything at all doesn’t look right, call the pros.

Schedule Annual Maintenance:

At the end of the day, there’s only so much you, as a business owner, can do to protect your signage. Often times it comes down to professional maintenance. At Golden Gate Sign, we offer scheduled maintenance and emergency response. We can:

  • Wash your signs every few months to keep them looking clean and fresh.
  • Apply protective sealant to your wooden signs.
  • Replace any cracked or peeling elements of your sign.
  • Touch up any paint.
  • Do a thorough cleaning on your electrical signs.
As a premier San Francisco sign company, we’ll do everything we can to ensure your equipment is working day-in and day-out for years to come – guaranteed!
