Emergency Board Up Hanover Pa

Storms, fires and other disasters can cause a lot of damage to a home, especially when its windows are exposed. Many homes in parts of the country avoid this by having hurricane shutters installed, but a home that is fully protected from the elements is more of an exception to the rule. If homeowners and business owners want to protect their property from severe weather or fire damage, an emergency board up can be a great solution, especially if your property will be unoccupied for an extended period of time.

Most people are aware of a board up, even if they don’t know exactly what it’s called. The windows of a home or commercial property are often covered with plywood boards if the property isn’t currently being used. Aside from sending the message that a building is unoccupied, these boards provide protection from the elements, vandalism and theft. It’s a simple yet effective solution for protecting a property that could otherwise fall into decay.

Naturally, the plywood boards that cover the windows of seemingly abandoned property are often in parts of the country where hurricanes and other severe storms are common. Glass and mesh screens do provide some protection to the interior of a building, but they are far from ideal in many situations. Glass breaks easily, and before long the owners of a property have to contend with shards of broken glass that can present a health hazard, not to mention the costs of replacing a window. Meanwhile, plywood boards are more resilient, if only because they have more give than a rigid glass window pane. They will provide better long-term protection if your home or commercial property is going to be left unattended and unoccupied.
