Fire damage to a home / business many times results in windows or doors damaged to the point where they no longer function. Sometimes this is because of the fire department’s efforts putting out the flames. Other times it’s from the fire itself. After the fire has been put out it is important to secure the property from intrusion, theft, etc. The process we do to secure / board-up a property after damage is as follows:
1. Arrival at property with customer after or during the fire suppression
2. Use of plywood, 2×4′s, etc to secure the broken windows and / or doors
3. Use use of interior clamps to secure the plywood from the inside so that someone from the outside cannot simply unscrew the material to enter the building. This adds more protection.
