TX electrical sign contractors: Crackdowns based on 2012 TDLR changes & revisions

Recommended Posts

There are apparently sting operations being performed to ensure electrical sign contractors are adhering to the latest TDLR changes. In particular, attention is being given to whether or not contractors are following the stipulation to include their name, address, phone number, license number and the verbiage shown below on proposals, invoices, and written contracts. The sticky part: a dollar amount written on a business card and given to a customer is considered a proposal, in which case that business card must then also include the verbiage below:

Regulated by The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, P. O. Box 12157, Austin, Texas 78711

1-800-803-9202, 512-463-6599; website:

I'm in no way an expert in the area, just thought this might help TX contractors avoid any potential headaches.

Government "gone wild" strikes in the lone star.

Well they must be thinking of ways to revenue farm it appears, like when they send the highway patrol on selected "let's write ticket" days because the state is bankrupt. In CA, it's the same except for the "Complaint" line added.

In fact we have to have our lic# on everything marketing and on vehicles. Only, our "Do nothing" Contractors Board hasn't had a sting to enforce such a stupid rule unless there is a complaint that winds up in court and a judge notices it or some sort of malice / ill will, or evade. Which as I've said before, sometimes "Doing Nothing" is better than "doing something"

This all sounds like when the city decides to install a new stop sign and then deploys patrol car hiding behind a bush up the next day to see if they can catch anyone who doesn't notice it.

Wonder what the TSA has said, if anything? Or did they go CSA/ISA and be MIA on the issue and program it out so it's members won't go KIA. :crazy:

You would think there would be more interest in busting the people who are doing wrong in the first place, like not licensed activity and not the people who have gone through the proper channel and not bust those that make a slight unintended omission. Obviously poor spending of our governments means fit the bill elsewhere. Most of the time if there's money to be made in enforcing an issue, some look to make money making it known. Such is the revolving door.

Then again, A EMC Board user just got sent to jail for 15 days for helping out in charity work. LINK So what can we expect?

    • make that 2 legs & i love it!
    • At 68 and still installing part time for other companies. We are in the same boat, companies having problems finding good help. One problem is that employees need benefits, can't raise a family with out them. Surprised how many employers do not offer this and also underpay. When some employers get an experienced employee the tend to jam the long hours to them. So guys like others do not. In my case I worked out of town last week and put in 62 hrs in 4 days and the guy I am helping out was pissed when I didn't want work the Friday.  I ran my ran my own company for 44 yrs, from my experience a lot of companies do not have a company policy that is review and signed with new employees, I find a lot of employers their communication skills suck, resulting in new and old employees screwing up, and tend to slam the work at their people. When my employees were acquiring a huge amount of overtime, it was time to put another crew on the road. For our Royal Bank in Canada, I have mentored many business, not too many in the sign business, but finding good reliable help is every ones problem. I tell it how it is during the hiring process, and encouraged my employees to vocal their problems with me without the risk of being fired. I don't know with I am an expert, but when i retired I ha 3 employees with 20 plus years and 1 with 30yrs.  And sure if found a good employee who was willing to learn, we taught them, but also rewarded them with bonus's and gift cards. I figure it takes a good 2 yrs or better to train some one and a sure loss if you lose them to your competitor. Thanks for letting me ramble on.
    • Just my personality showing thru!  Some old Grey farts still appreciate craftsmanship! 
    • Gary;   I think you and the other posters are being way too harsh and just not showing appreciation of the Creativity of this repair and the one listed by my friend Angie.   These are the times we currently find ourselves navigating...........   Peace out  
    • PK HOUSINGS   PK, or Neon P-K Housings are harder and harder to find these days with no major Neon Manufacturer still producing the Metal Shroud portion of a PK Housing.  Westrim??  Nope....Transco?  Nope....Allanson?  Nope...    In fact, it's been nearly impossible to find New complete PK Housings.    The only way in the last couple of years if you had a Neon Project for a client has been to find existing stock from a sign company that has had some just sitting on a old dusty shelf somewhere, or possibly a sign supplier who didn't even know they had any, and with LEDs flooding the market it's doubtful a supplier rep even knows what they are/were, and that dusty case they do have with all those strange metal & glass components was possibly spare parts for some old delivery truck their company use to have from the 90's???      Think of how many have just been straight thrown out in the garbage   Well, not every Neon wall project calls for #200, #300 Housings, the difficult Masters Technologies Boots and Sleeving System.  If you want a Neon attached to on a wall for a clean look & without a raceway, YES...it IS still possible!!!   We've been sitting on these for some time, sorry for the late public announcement   Store Link of Neon Housings http://www.thesignsyndicate.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/8-neon-housing-components/       Call or Email us for questions or orders!!  orders@thesignsyndicate   (858) 880-1400
