What's New: Posting House Numbers

Title

Posting House Numbers

Body

POSTING HOUSE NUMBERS: Residents should post the house number on their home per your local municipality’s specific requirements. Landlords should post the proper house number on the building and a secondary apartment or suite number. Tenants should encourage their landlord to follow the suggested policy.

The house number shall be made up of numbers and/or letters which are contrasting in color with the background on which they are affixed, as near to the front entrance as possible and practical so that the number is legible from the sidewalk (if any), the road, and the opposite side of the street--day or night. Examples are listed below. Again, please check with your municipality for their specific requirements:

Examples:

  • Residences, Townhouse and “In-Town” Businesses: Numbers shall be at least four (4) inches in height.
  • Apartment Building and High-Rises: Numbers shall be at least six (6) inches in height. Apartment numbers for individual units within the complex shall be displayed on or above or to the side of the doorway to each unit.
  • Industrial and Commercial Structures: Numbers shall be at least ten (10) inches in height.
  • Private Lanes and Long Driveways: A resident whose house number is not clearly visible from the street should install a post near the end of the driveway with numbers at least four (4) inches in height, and at least forty-eight (48) inches above the ground.
