Board Up Services help patch up structural damage from fire, car, or weather-related disasters. If your home or business’s windows are damaged, it may be difficult to replace them immediately. Boston Board Up Emergency Services facilitates around-the-clock emergency board-up services to secure and protect your home or business until you can completely replace or fix the damage.
Boston Board Up provides temporary fencing services for home and business owners who need an extra layer of security. Temporary fencing protects your property from accidents or further damage, deter trespassing, and provide privacy.
Different situations may cause your windows to break, leaving your home exposed. Here are a few of the most common examples:
Storm damage: Windstorms, tornadoes, and hurricanes pack a powerful punch. The pressure differential between the inside and outside is sometimes enough to shatter windows. Then there’s the possibility of debris being hurtled at your windows while traveling hundreds of miles per hour, smashing the windows on impact.
Fire: Heat from a structural fire can cause a surprising amount of damage to your home, including shattering glass windows.
Property vacancy: Foreclosed and abandoned properties are often left with broken windows. Board-up services are essential in preserving the home from further damage or vandalism until someone new buys the property.
Preventative measure: It’s wise to plan ahead with board-up services when a big storm is in the forecast. This preventative measure can protect your windows from breaking in the first place. Then after the storm passes, you simply have the boards removed to restore your home to its former beauty.
Prevent damage: Anticipating a storm and boarding up your windows in advance can save you the hassle and money of replacing broken windows. Even if your home has already sustained damage, cut your losses by boarding up the windows until they can be replaced.
Retain insurance coverage: After a natural disaster, your first instinct should be to call your insurance company. Boarding up your windows ensures the best coverage for your claim because the boards help prevent further water or wind damage. Don’t give your insurance company an excuse to deny your claim – pursue board-up services following a fire or natural disaster, and we bill directly to your insurance company.
Keep vandals out: Whether you occupy the damaged home or want to preserve a foreclosed property until it sells, board-up services are necessary. This simple measure deters vandalism and theft and prevents the liability issue that could arise if an intruder entered the building and sustained an injury.
