Leave the Board ups to the PROs
Have you ever been driving down a road and see those homes all boarded up; you probably think there's nothing to it right, get some plywood, screws and you're all set. However there is actually more to it; first off let's talk about some reasons to board up your property:
- Before or After a Storm
- After a Fire or other Structural Damage
- Maybe it is Vacant or Condemned
These are some of the most common reasons, if you are boarding up your home before a storm consider thickness of plywood or having them custom cut to fit your windows so you don't drill holes into the siding of your home. If extreme storms are common in your area you might consider custom plywood screens that you can keep reusing. If it is after a storm or fire you probably just need the boards up as soon as possible to keep your home secure from vandals.
Whether it is before or after, boarding up damaged property is a burden that no one should ever have to go through. Especially if it is your property that has been damaged. There will be so many other things that need your attention and this should not be one of them.
