EMERGENCY BOARD UP SERVICES

Glass Inc. emergency board up services for commercial and residential properties are now available for Atlanta, GA, and surrounding areas. When weather disasters, accidents, and emergencies occur, buildings and homes are susceptible to extensive damage, and their windows and doorways are often structural weak points. They require reinforcement to secure a property and immediate repair to prevent additional damage. These situations can be overwhelming and make you feel vulnerable, but Glass Inc. is standing by and ready to help!


Preventative and Subsequent Services


Whether you are anticipating an emergency or you are the victim of a disaster or crime, Glass Inc.’s board up services can help you protect your business or home quickly. Our emergency board up services are available for situations including vandalism, burglary, crime scenes, vehicle impacts, fires, storms, structural damage, and more. Regardless of your situation, Glass Inc.’s team is equipped with the experience and materials to respond promptly to an incident. We have immediate availability, and you can contact us twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Additionally, Glass Inc. can work directly with your insurance company.


Emergency Board Up Process


If you are concerned about your building’s security because of weather or crime or you have been the victim of an incident, the first step you should always take is to contact your insurance company to ensure coverage. In some cases, you may also need to contact law enforcement. Doing this will help you correctly coordinate your property's board up. After getting in touch with your insurance provider, call Glass Inc. We will come to the location quickly and assess the structure or the damage. After the assessment, our technicians will secure the building by boarding up the windows and doors. All the openings and accessible entry points will be barricaded with exterior grade plywood, anchors, and braces. Depending on your building or home, there may be different plywood mounting options. Following the board up of your property, our team will clean up the debris from the damage, like shards of glass, to mitigate potential hazards. Once your building has been boarded up, you will have peace of mind and be able to coordinate the necessary repairs with less pressure and anxiety.


FEMA Board Up Materials


Not all board up solutions are the same. Glass Inc. does not use particleboard, waferboard, masonite, or other similar materials. To provide properties with the best security and protection, Glass Inc. utilizes the materials suggested by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in their publication, Board Up Procedures. Our materials include exterior grade plywood, construction-grade lumber braces, construction-grade nuts, washers, carriage bolts, galvanized or stainless steel ring-shank nails, and comparable deck nails.


Unfortunately, weather disasters, crime, and accidents happen. When they damage your building or home, it is not unusual to get overwhelmed and anxious, but you can take measures to prevent additional damage. Emergency board up services are ideal for the moments following a disaster or in preparation for one. Boarding up your windows and doors will effectively secure your building while also being cost-effective. To receive an estimate or an immediate repair, contact Glass Inc. today.
