Emergency Board Up Service
Independence Day Board Up Service
Property Recovery 911 was contacted by Jim, owner of Jim's Automotive Supercenter in North East Philadelphia on Independence Day 2014. The storefront lost a plate glass window to high winds and required emergency board up service.
We arrived on site within one hour of being awarded the contract to clean up the broken glass, survey the damage and provide an emergency board up solution that would provide security yet allow continued business operations while waiting for glass repair.
South West Philadelphia Board Up
Philadelphia Board UpProperty Recovery 911 was contacted by an absentee homeowner for emergency Board Up services in the South West section of Philadelphia. The home was accessed by scavengers who stole the copper plumbing, which is usually sold to local scrap yards for far less that the victim will need to pay for replacement. In order to avoid further damages and mitigate any potential liabilities associated with unwanted intruders, we were contracted to board up three points that were illegally accessed. The property is a row home consisting of two apartments that are accessed by separate entrances located on opposite sides of the structures front wall, bisected by a large double-hung window that serves the living room in the first floor apartment. Both doors and the window mentioned above were used by trespassers as entry points.
Commercial Board Up
Property Recovery 911 was contacted by Atlas Glass Repair Co. in the early morning hours on 06/08/2014 for an emergency board up in the North East section of Philadelphia. Atlas Glass Repair Co. contacts us most often after hours for commercial board up jobs, but we have also done residential board up and industrial board up work for them.
The Red Raven
Why Emergency Board Up Was Required?
Property Recovery 911 was contacted by JD Glass and Door Company in the late afternoon on 06/06/2014 for an emergency board up in Bucks County Pennsylvania. JD Glass and Door Company contacts us for 24 hour board up, most often to secure commercial locations so they can remain unattended through the early morning hours while replacement glass and framing is being fabricated for rapid replacement. In this instance, the lug nuts on a car wheel sheared off and the wheel traveling at 60 mph made devastating impact with one of the commercial bay windows of the Red Raven Pub on 250 Lincoln Highway in Fairless Hills, PA. Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident. Property Recovery 911 arrived on location within one hour of being awarded the job and secured the window.
