Construction dust signs usually come in two different sizes. For less than ten acres, a 4ft x 4ft dust sign is required and for properties over 10 acres, a 4ft x 8ft dust sign is required by the Air Quality Management Board. On these signs, the text has to be a certain size along with certain wording on the sign as well. For example, the name of the project, expiration date of the project, contact information, etc. need to be on the sign. The signs nowadays are generally made out of aluminum versus the older style MDO board ( wood). Construction companies like the lighter weight signs because it only takes one person to install a aluminum sign and in cases of where the sign gets hit or run over by large construction equipment, the aluminum sign can be straightened out versus having to replace a broken wood sign. The cost of a 4ft x 4ft sign is $99.00 and the larger 4ft x 8ft sign is $175.00. The sign is printed on a vinyl substrate and then laminated for protection against the weather elements. The aluminum is weather proof and can withstand rain and the intense heat of summer. if dust renewals are needed, you can simply put a vinyl patch over the dust sign to give your dust sign more life.
