Board Up Services

Securing Your Property & Keeping Intruders Out

Our services involve securing a property by placing temporary protective measures on windows, doors, and other openings. Regardless if it is a factory, single-family home, duplex, or corporate office, when a property has been damaged, our crew is on the spot.

What is Board Up and When is It Necessary?

When disaster strikes, it can be a chaotic experience for property owners. Whether it’s a natural disaster, fire, or break-in, the property damaged by these situations can be extensive & costly. Board up services provide an effective solution to securing your property while protecting it from further damage. Here are some of the most common situations when it may be necessary:

?

Natural Disasters

Natural disasters, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, or earthquakes, can cause significant damage to property. This service can help prevent further damage from occurring and protect the property from the elements.

?

Fires

Fires can cause extensive property damage. They can also compromise the integrity of your windows and doors. We prevent damage while securing your property by boarding up all facade openings that an unwanted visitor may use to sneak in. We don’t just use four-by-twos. We use the most state-of-the-art gypsum plyboards that seal every gap, to name one example.

?

Break-Ins

When a property has been broken into, it’s important to secure the property to prevent further theft or damage from occurring. Our services can help protect the property until more permanent solutions can be implemented.

?

Vacant Properties

Vacant properties are often at risk for vandalism, break-ins, and weather-related damage. The Fire Restoration Team (TFRT) can also provide a temporary solution to protect the property until a more permanent solution is put in place.

Our company, TFRT, has a team of professionals visiting your property to assess the damage & determine where this service is needed while evaluating the best approach for securing the property. They will then use the necessary tools & materials to seal off any openings in the property.

The materials used will depend on the severity of the damage & the size of the openings that need to be covered. From there, we provide structural reinforcements and supports to avoid the structure from collapsing. That is especially prone to happen if the building experienced fire or water damage.

These changes in temperature and humidity can severely weaken structural beams and columns that are vital in keeping a building intact. To take extra precautions that most of our competitors do not take, we provide weather-proof materials to prevent the structure from succumbing to the environmental factors.

Lastly, we remove all hazardous materials and debris that would otherwise create an unsafe environment for you. Documentation and insurance assistance is taken care of at the end.

DIY Board up Techniques: Are They Effective or Risky?

Doing it yourself may seem cost-effective, but it comes with risks. If the boards aren’t installed correctly, they may not provide adequate protection. Worse, they may even fall off, causing further damage. Additionally, if the boards are not secured properly, they may provide a hiding place for intruders or wildlife to enter the property, causing further damage.

In addition, DIY board-up techniques require special equipment and expertise. If you do not have the proper equipment, you may risk injuring yourself or damaging the property further. This can result in costly repairs, medical bills, and legal fees.

Why Our Procedure Will Help You Substantially More Than DIY
