(81.1) Customary Maintenance. For [accessory] all signs, customary maintenance shall mean all manner of maintenance, repair, or component replacement of a legally permitted or lawful sign that is done to keep the structure and its various components in good repair. This definition applies to all parts of a sign, including the supporting structure, walkways, sign face, and all other component parts, except the foundation of an accessory sign (in the case of a non-accessory sign, "customary maintenance" shall include the maintenance, repair, or replacement of the foundation).

Nothing in this definition is intended to relieve any sign owner from applicable building permit requirements under Section A-301 of the Philadelphia Administrative Code.
