Do you know we service light poles??

Keeping your lights on and performing is so important for so many reasons!

As they approach your business, your customer’s first impression is your parking lot. Does it look inviting? Is it well lit? Does it look safe?

A well lit parking lot increases security and lowers the possibility of crime. And security cameras perform better with better lit areas.

Customers will feel safer walking in and out of your business and feel better about leaving their cars and possessions while they are in your business.

Good lighting can also help prevent accidents-driving or walking.

Thinking about converting to LED? You should! Converting to LED creates cost savings by being more durable and reliable, which lowers maintenance costs. Additionally, LED’s generate better and brighter light.

And, did you know that LED lights don’t emit UV Rays that attract insects? No bugs?? That’s a win for sure!

Here are just a few of the services we can provide:

  • Replacing burnt out lamps and ballasts

  • Replacing or upgrading fixtures to LED

  • Sealing fixtures when possible to stop water ingress

  • Secure hand-hole covers to prevent unauthorized electricity usage or copper theft

  • Installing bird spikes atop light fixtures

  • Washing & painting poles, fixtures, and concrete bases

  • Replacement of rusted or damaged light poles

  • Inspect your light poles looking for things that could affect illumination-dust, debris and tree branches

  • install dusk to dawn lights or motion sensors

Let us know how we can help! Give us a call if you’d like a light pole inspection and recommendations on how you can improve your lights!

Friday, October 2nd is Manufacturing Day #mfgday20 sponsored by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and the International Sign Association (ISA). Manufacturing Day serves to educate local students on how our industry offers rewarding, good paying, interesting and highly skilled career choices. It also expands community awareness of the industry and demonstrates how design industry contributes to the local and national economy and how we, at P.S. Services, as installers, play a vital role in the sign, graphics, and visual communications industry.

We are partnering with ISA and NAM as part of this important day. If this were a different year, we’d invite you to our facility in Anaheim, but being 2020, we are participating virtually with an open house video that is easily inserted in the curriculum. If you or your students would like to participate, please contact us!

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words. And when it comes to sign installation, nothing could be truer. While we’ve always provided photographs to document progress and completion of our projects, these days, it’s even easier as we are all photographers with our cell phones in hand!

We believe that documentation with photographs is important not only for us, but also, more importantly, for our customer, because it augments our written documentation so well. Written documentation can be subjective, but photographs are able to provide objective visual records.

While there are many reasons that we value photographic documentation as a communication tool, here are six that we find particularly valuable:

· Communication tool: Many of our customers are national sign companies who do not have direct access to the sites we are working on. Our goal is to communicate on projects regularly so our customer is aware of its progress. And what better way to show them what is happening onsite than with photographs.

· Changes in site conditions: It is not uncommon to walk onsite to find conditions have changed from the original expectations or the original site survey, which can lead to potential issues with installation and/or product. Photographing the site from the moment we walk on can identify the unexpected and provide clear back up to our written documentation of the conditions from the start.

· Reasons for delays or changes in schedule: As a sign installation company, we are often one of the last trades on site. Trade stacking can cause delays at the scheduled install time. Trades in front of our crews often cause delays if they are running behind schedule—a common occurrence in construction. Photographs, in addition to our written logs can show our customers reasons for project delay.

· Manufacturing changes or defects: We can also show changes/delays in installation on site due to manufacturing changes, defects or damage of product. Photographs can identify these issues and provide visual back up to written documentation.

· Punch list: At the end of a project our photographs can provide a visual punch list of items needed to close out the project.

· Project completion: Photographs showing a completed project confirms that the sign is properly fastened, connected and wired, the sign is lighting properly, level and undamaged and the work area, sidewalks, parking lots, landscape and roof are clean and clear.

Sign installation is a crucial milestone on any project. Most often, it signals the home stretch of the project. By documenting our part of the project from start to finish, our goal is to make the process go as smoothly as possible.

But hey, is our job over at the end of the project? Not really! It’s really just a transition to the next stage of our job--sign maintenance!

Preventative and proactive maintenance and inspections are key to prolonging sign life and performance. And, not to worry, we’ll provide photo documentation for that stage too!
