Emergency Board Up Services Following Fire
Wednesday, February 5, 2020
As a result of a building fire, openings in the structure can occur and windows can break for any number of reasons including: explosions (which likely preceded the start of the fire), thermal expansion of window frames and other building materials, warping of the building, occupants or fire fighters breaking the glass, etc. What’s left behind is fire damage, of course, and the need for emergency board up services.
Emergency board up services are often necessary if a home or business incurs storm or fire damage resulting in fissures in the building. Property owners need to see to it that any openings in a structure are properly boarded up in order to ensure the following:
- Protection from weather. There’s always the chance that a storm will occur while your property is being restored. Without emergency board up services, your property can experience water damage or further structural issues, leading to a higher cost in restoration and a longer timeline to address the additional damage.
- Vandalism prevention. Homes or businesses that are severely damaged as a result of fire, a storm, or the like will most likely require the property to remain vacant during restoration and reconstruction. If your property is left open, it can leave room for vandalism, theft, or even squatters. By using emergency board up services, a temporary solution is provided to repair gaps, broken windows, and empty doorways, keeping unwanted people out.
- Peace of mind. Dealing with the restoration and renovation of your property is stressful enough. The last thing you need is to be kept up at night worrying if your property and surviving belongings are safe. By using emergency board up services, you can breathe easier knowing that your property is secure and protected.
