    If it's corrugated, I'd opt for a panel of sorts. Probably just print on dibond. I'd also give them an option for HDU painted, but still mounted to some panels.

    Panel it and fasten to building with painted sheet metal screws. It will look fine. You can get 5x10 ACM to do it

    I like ACM (Dibond) with a French cleat. Once the cleat is installed you just lift and set the panels. secure the panels once in place.

    Better check with City & County Codes.

    Weld up an aluminum frame with vertical & horizontal ribs where panels but together. Mount ACP to the frame with pop rivets.
    Attach two horizontal french cleats to the building and two to your sign one near the top, one near the bottom. Lift the sign and drop it onto the french cleats. Be sure the sign is mechanically fastened to the building. I agree with Karst41, check zoning. Don't be shy on pricing

    We've done them in sections on 1"x1" aluminum tube frame (with the corners & Ts that screw or pop rivet). For getting it on the building it can be assembled on site and lifted in one piece
    or installed in sections. Depending on the design it may require some "touch-up" if graphics don't align perfectly. We usually use shoes screwed to the high point of ribs, and lots of them. We often add a raised aluminum border made with .040.
