Tree Impact Damage Reconstruction
Heavy winds are unpredictable, and their strength could be enough to topple trees of all sizes, from young saplings to towering, full-grown oaks and elms. Depending on the size of the tree and strength of the wind, the tree can come crashing down on your deck, car or even your home. If a tree falls into your home or business, it is important to act quickly to protect anyone inside the building and remain safe outdoors.
What to Do in the Aftermath
A tree may fall into your building without notice. As soon as you hear the crack or any vibrations from the fall, you need to evacuate the building. Find a space outside that is far away from any trees, in case more fall due to the pressure from the wind, and call 911 immediately. As soon as you contact emergency services, crews from the fire and police department will begin making their way to your home, as well as a building inspector, tree company and the crew from Boston Board Up Services. After the structure is fully assessed and deemed safe to enter, steps will be taken to stabilize the building. The tree company will dismantle and remove the tree, branch by branch, before the Board Up crew will be able to shore and secure the building. Debris left inside the home will be removed as the opening in the structure is boarded up to keep wildlife, leaves, and intruders out. As the building is stabilized, notes will be taken to determine if reconstruction is possible, or if the building will need to be demolished and rebuilt. Any work performed immediately on the scene will only be temporary measures to protect the structure from further collapse. Boston Board Up Services will provide quotes for debris removal, reconstruction or demolition after the structure is boarded up and stabilized.
Vehicle vs. Structure Impacts
Accidents happen, and the slippery roads from rain, snow, and ice may cause vehicles to slide off the road and into structures. Having a car drive into your building is a distressing situation, for both the building owner and the driver. It is important to act quickly to minimize injury.
After the Incident
You and anyone inside should evacuate the structure immediately and alert the authorities. As soon as they receive word, emergency service crews will make their way towards your building. This will include crews from the fire and police departments, as well as a building inspector and engineer. The building will be assessed to determine the safest way to remove the vehicle. Shoring techniques will be used to stabilize and support the structure as the vehicle is safely extracted by a towing company. The team from Boston Board Up Services will then board up and stabilize the structure, removing any debris from the collision. This will be a temporary measure until further assessment can take place to determine if reconstruction or demolition will need to take place. Boston Board Up Services will provide you with quotes for each service after stabilizing your structure.
