When there’s a fire in your property, damaged windows, fragile walls and holes in the ceiling and roof can compromise the overall safety, security and stability of a building.
Investing in professional board up and roof tarp services can help secure your property and safeguard the affected area from future damage.
What are Board Up and Roof-Tarp Services?
Board up and roof-tarp services consist of boarding up missing windows and securing walls to mitigate additional damage. If the roof has been damaged during a fire, a tarp is used to protect the roof and the rest of the structure from weather damage and intruders.
As the San Francisco area’s most trusted board-up company, Dry Kings can be there when you need us — 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our team of licensed contractors use a combination of plywood and other building materials to board up windows, secure walls and tarp roofs quickly to ensure your home or business is functional and safe from the elements and outsiders. We can even board up windows and doors that were broken by firefighters to vent the fire.
Why Do You Board Up Buildings After a Fire?
When the doors, windows, walls and roof of a structure have been compromised, it makes your home or business vulnerable to break-ins, vandalism or further destruction including structural issues and weather damage. Boarding up windows or walls and tarping any holes in the roof is essential to mitigating loss and securing your property. Key reasons to use a board-up and roof-tarp service include the following:
- Prevents future damage.
Think of your structure like a game of Jenga – every piece matters. Any damage to the windows, walls, or roof can compromise the structural integrity of the entire building. Boarding up and tarping the structure helps mitigate potential structural issues while also protecting your property against weather damage and more.
- Protects against intruders.
Broken windows and holes in your structure are an open invite for break-ins and vandalism. Boarding up and tarping these affected areas helps deter vandalism and theft while also helping prevent a potential liability issue that could arise if someone enters the building and injures themselves. This is especially important if the building isn’t currently occupied or being used.
- Your insurance claim.
Boarding up your windows, securing walls and tarping any holes in the ceiling and roof, ensures the best coverage for your claim because these steps help prevent future damage from structural issues and/or weather.
