Board up and roof trap secure and stabilize your home after a disaster

After an emergency such as a fire you home will be exposed and certain structures could be weakened. The first priority in a disaster recovery effort will be to secure your home and make it safe for workers and other roll players to enter. This is in part accomplished by a process known as board up.  Board up can also extend to activities such roof covers, temporary fencing, shoring and structural stabilization.


For effective disaster response and board up services in Chicago, Niles, Morton Grove, Skokie, and Lincolnwood you can call on the response team at A Emergency. They are on 24/7 standby and could be on scene within minutes.


After a fire or similar disaster you need to act quickly to ensure safety, prevent additional losses and mitigate and stabilize the situation.  A rapid response disaster recovery team will mitigate the situation and prevent further losses.  After a disaster your property will have open areas, broken windows and other security weaknesses that will expose your home to the elements as well as potential vagrants and predators. The board up, shoring and stabilization process will make your home safe and secure it against elements and unwanted intruders. Once the board up and stabilization process is complete, the tasks of cleaning, salvage and restoration can commence.


A fire or similar disaster will likely damage your roof and leave it exposed to the elements and possible intruders.  Roof repairs can take a long time and may be necessary to first repair other supporting structures. Roof tarp services will temporarily secure your roof, deter unwanted access and protect the interior of your home. A roof tarp can provide temporary protection for up to 3 months and allow the recovery team to commence repairs and reconstruction.


If you are the victim of fire damage, windstorm or similar damage you need to contact a disaster recovery team as soon as possible so they commence with board ups and roof tarping to secure and stabilize the situation.
