What type of signage is a must-have for apartment complex managers? For the owner who goes it alone without a management company assisting, what signs do you need to post to keep residents happy and attract new renters? Cowtown Graphics & Signs is here to help you get your apartment building signage worked out.
Parking Lot Signs
The larger the building, the greater the need for parking lot signage. Identify lower speed limits in areas where pedestrians may cross. Highlight the handicap accessible parking spots. Remember also to reserve a space – or more – for the complex’s management staff. These signs are fashioned from cost-effective aluminum and reflective vinyl graphics.
Set apart your property from others with a monument sign. If your building has a name, be sure to put it on this sign and place it at your parking lot entrance. This allows motorists to easily locate the apartment complex early enough to change lanes safely. If you have been advertising one or more vacancies, this type of sign helps tenants quickly find you and not simply keep driving after they missed the turn.
Do you have a resident-accessible pool, gym, clubhouse, or collection of barbecue pits on your property? Do you maintain a laundry room for renters? Help new tenants find these amenities quickly and easily. There is nothing more frustrating than having to walk around a larger complex searching for the pool or the laundry room. Post and panel signs make it easy to incorporate the names of various destinations with arrows for effortless wayfinding.
If you offer amenities, you need safety signage. These signs may help to limit your liability as they instruct tenants on the correct use of the pool, gym, laundry facility, and other amenities. Examples include vinyl-covered aluminum signs that discuss pool rules, the safe use of the washer and dryer, and instruction on how to light the grills and minimize burn risks. If some walkways get slippery during rainfall or after sprinkler use, have a sign that alerts residents to this fact.
