As businesses grow and change, one item that needs to change is their interior and exterior signage. At Houston Graphic Signs, we offer debranding and removal of old signage in Houston and the surrounding cities like Katy, Sugar land, Cypress, and Spring.
Debranding and Sign Removal
Debranding services are necessary when the signs of an establishment need to be removed. Usually, this happens when a lease or business moves. Most lease agreements require the building to return to the original condition described in the lease. Doing so will require the signage to be removed and repaired. Many businesses often forget this step when it comes time to move or vacate their current location. Leaving the signage to be removed by the landlord is usually more expensive as the landlord will use the security deposit to remove the signage. When this occurs, often, the landlord will seek any sign service company and will not get competitive bids as they are applying the costs to the security deposit.
Best Options for Sign Removal
A business that is vacating a location is in a better position to leverage signage removal. The opportunity to remove the old signage with the possibility to reinstall or install new signage at the new location will provide the business with the most cost-effective options. Businesses can obtain competitive bids with reputable sign companies and ensure they are providing the level of service and capabilities needed. Not all sign companies can remove and install signs, especially with permitting and height requirements.
The hidden cost of a low-quality sign removal
There are a lot of low-cost sign removal companies; however, you will generally get low-quality work. When removing signs, the mounting and penetration holes need to be patched and repaired. The area around the repair will also need to be painted. Paint to blend is a common term used to blend new paint over a repair to older and sometimes faded paint. A good paint job requires matching and blending the new paint to blend well with the older color. A poor repair and paint match can sometimes require a business to repaint the entire wall or surround area to return it to the original condition stated in the lease. Many municipalities and property management companies also have vested interest to ensure the repaired and painted area is satisfactory. They do not want inadequately painted and repaired areas and can require the job to be redone if poorly repaired and painted.
