- Roof Tarping: roof leaks, big or small, can cause significant damage to your home. In fact, if roof damage is le untreated, the resulting water damage that can occur could be even more costly than the roof damage itself!

WHEN DO YOU NEED A ROOF TARP OF BOARD-UP SERVICE?
A home ravaged by flames may suffer from a compromised structure, fragile walls and holes through the ceiling, and possibly, the roof. After the fire is extinguished, emergency board-up service and roof tarping prevents additional destruction and property loss until restoration can be completed.

Flood or Water Disaster
In the case of flooding, the source of the water could impact the type of home services required. For instance, a leak in the roof from heavy rainfall calls for tarping to temporarily cover the holes. On the other hand, an underground pipe burst or flood caused by a natural disaster can permeate flooring and drywall materials, destroying the integrity of the walls and requiring immediate board-up services.

Severe weather conditions are capable of causing many types of home damage. Strong wind gusts can uproot trees and send branches flying through windows, while hail pellets and rain wreak havoc on roofs. Let’s not forget a tornado’s ability to tear siding from homes and rip shingles off rooftops, too.
In any of these cases, you’ll want your windows, walls and roofs covered to prevent additional weather and damage from affecting your home.
Unfortunately, vandals can generate their fair share of damage, too. Windows smashed by rocks and doors destroyed by forced entry are a couple of situations that may require board-up services.
You’ll want to make sure your home’s points of entry are secured while you wait for your new windows or doors to be installed.
Accidents happen. From minor incidents, like a baseball shattering a window, to major events, like a car crashing into the side of your home, emergency board-up services provide the temporary security solution you need while figuring out your next steps.
You can rest easy knowing your home is protected from natural elements and intruders until repairs can be completed.

In fact, if a natural disaster is the reason your windows are broken, local installers are probably already inundated with replacement requests. When your appointment is delayed, you should pursue board up services for peace of mind.

Is it really worth pursuing board up services?
Once you realize the many money-saving benefits, you’ll discover the services often pay for themselves.
- Prevent damage: Anticipating a storm and boarding up your windows in advance can save you the hassle and money of replacing broken windows. Even if your home has already sustained damage, cut your losses by boarding up the windows until they can be replaced.
- Retain insurance coverage: After a natural disaster, your first instinct should be to call your insurance company. Boarding up your windows ensures the best coverage for your claim because the boards help prevent further water or wind damage. Don’t give your insurance company an excuse to deny your claim – pursue board up services following a fire or natural disaster.
- Keep vandals out: Whether you occupy the damaged home or want to preserve a foreclosed property until it sells, board up services are a must. This simple measure deters vandalism and theft, and prevents the liability issue that could arise if an intruder entered the building and sustained an injury.
