Weather Damage: How Nature Can Affect Your Billboard

A wide variety of very popular billboard advertisements

What kind of coverage comes with billboards? In the event of weather damage interfering with the ad, what are the options? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Effortless Outdoor media can help to give you a solid idea of what happens in this case.

Your ad is precious, sacred even. We understand that your ad is an extension of you. You’ve put time into creating something that speaks for you and engages your audience. Your investment into this medium should never go unrewarded. Here are the protections for when something goes wrong.

The power of nature

Inclement weather causes most of the damage that billboards sustain. This is usually the case with vinyl billboards. It’s not a regular occurrence, but when it happens it can be devastating. “The vinyl [can] get ripped off the structure with high winds”. Luckily there are safeguards for this.

In the event of the elements turning on your ad, your advertiser can grant you that time back. Once your ad comes down, we’ll work diligently to get it back up and running. From there, you’ll be able to get the days it was down back on the backend of the promotion. The same goes for when there’s irreparable damage to the board’s foundation. In this case, we’d locate another setting of equal value to re-erect the ad.

What happens if there’s a weather event and the billboard gets knocked down? What happens?

Bill Hobbs:

If there’s a weather event like a storm or something, and the billboard gets knocked down, the advertiser would… Usually what happens is the vinyl would get ripped off the structure with high winds. And that doesn’t happen very often, but in storms and things like that, tornado’s… Is if that happens, then the advertiser would get credit for the time his display is out of service. And then when he goes back up, the billing would start again, or if the actual structure gets damaged, which almost never happens, we would find the advertiser alternative location of advertising.
