How Quickly Will Fire Damage Restoration Companies Begin Working?
Our professional restoration company will come and scope or estimate the damage looking for protein residues, natural substance residue, and synthetic residue to get an estimate of the damage. Project managers will show up at your property to come up with a game plan and you’ll find it’ll be emotionally reassuring to have a team in place to help begin picking up the pieces. They’ll take your building from a charred ruin to a working home again.
They’ll begin the emergency board up process right away if needed. Once the fire marshal clears the area or says it is fine to be there, we will use plywood to board up your windows. Plywood is the cheapest option to board windows.
When our professionals are boarding your windows, they have options to secure it. They can use concrete screws, anchor screws, wingnuts or lag screws with anchors.
Our crew members will measure your windows and once the windows are measured the plywood will be cut according to the measurements. To board the windows in concrete, the technicians will use a masonry bit and screws and fasten the board to the house. If your house has aluminum or other sidings, we will use a stud finder to search for the window frame stud. The holes from the plywood will line up with the center of the studs. We will then pre-drill holes in the plywood and then drill through to secure it to the building. You may notice that these boards are doubled up for larger windows and doors.
Emergency board up is critical to your home. Not only does it protect your property from the weather, but it also discourages vandals from breaking into the property as well as helps with structural stabilization. Besides, it’s mandated by the insurance companies.
