Hi I have a 30lb 36"x24" granite sign that I would like to hang above the door to our business. It has a fiberglass backing to increase durability. I would prefer not to drill into the granite but I would definatly like the sign to be secure so it doesn't land on someones head in one of new Englands snow or rain storms. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks Barbie

This is my second post the first one I did before I registered and I can't find it, sorry!

I forgot to tell that the building is an old tabacco barn with wood siding.

Thanks Barbie

Not my area of expertise, but a couple ideas. You could use cleats like the ones you see on mirrors, but larger. These have a hole for a screw and directly hold the piece in place.

You could use silicone adhesive to directly bond the stone to the wood, or use the silicone or epoxy adhesive to attach Z-clips. Z-clips engage a cleat that is mounted to the barn. This hanging method is common for cabinets and swing frames which are similarly heavy.
