Emergency Board Up Philadelphia

Property Recovery 911 was called to assist a homeowner with emergency board up service in the North East section of Philadelphia on Saturday March 14, 2015. The heavy stone facade adorning the front of the home collapsed that morning, exposing the first level of the home to the elements and providing easy access for would be intruders.

The steel I-beam supporting the stonework over the first level window-bank had become dislodged and fell out bringing the three windows along. Although the support beam and much of the stone above came down, large sections remained loosely attached, resulting in a precarious work environment. Prior to our arrival for emergency board up Philadelphia Licensing & Inspections erected a temporary fence around the front of the home to keep unwary individuals at a safe distance from this dangerous area.

Safety precautions dictated that we perform the emergency board up from within the house. After clearing contents and debris from the vicinity, we installed 2”x4” framing to support the 5/8” plywood required by city code. Many competing emergency board up companies ignore such codes in favor of inferior materials that bolster their bottom line at the expense of the customer. Such unscrupulous behavior will never be tolerated or practiced by Property Recovery 911.
