Did you know that hiring a contractor for a board up service can help save your home from extensive damage in all sorts of situations? Board up services occur for a wide variety of reasons, but you may not have considered them as they’re not very well known. In short, when you need to have your windows and doors protected, board up service, like what we offer at Smith & Son’s Contracting, will come and carefully secure your property. To help you get a better idea of why you might need board up services, today, we’ll walk you through some common uses.
During Property Vacancies
When a property – both residential and commercial – is vacant, it becomes an easy target for theft, vandalism, squatting, and more. If your property is vacant for any extent, board up services can help protect you from damage. Whether a property faces foreclosure, abandonment, or remains vacant during renovation, board ups will keep it safe.
To Prevent Storm Damage
As weather patterns become increasingly volatile, the need for protection against storms becomes greater. With strong winds tossing debris, hail, and more, your windows can be at significant risk. When windows and weak areas reinforced by boards are better able to withstand these threats.
After A Fire
Many forget that the damage from fires and other disasters aren’t limited to just the effects of flame and smoke. Much of the damage comes from what happens while the fire is put out. Extreme heat and firefighters entering the home can lead to broken windows and doors. If these broken areas are left alone, rain and other elements can enter, which will increase the damage.
While Waiting For Repairs and During Construction
Another reason to use a board up service is if your property is undergoing construction or renovation. Depending on the type and scale of nearby construction, your windows may be at risk of unintentional damage. Ensuring that your windows are safe before work starts helps keep you and your construction team at ease.
