An entrance sign to an HOA serves a couple of purposes. First would be to identify the community and its main entrances to the homes it governs.
The second would be to help increase the value of the homes in the community and preserve their value, after all, that is why they pay dues to the HOA. A beautiful sign is the first thing a potential home buyer will see.
This sign for Hunters Glen is HDU that has been routed on a CNC machine to achieve the desired depth and shape. A duplicate file is used to cut out the brushed metal, then it is overlaid and adhered to the HDU.
The final step is to mount the sign onto the brick wall with the proper hardware to ensure it never falls off but can be removed for future maintenance such as a repaint. Just like a home, you will need to clean it and paint it every 7 or so years.
