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.

Emergency Board Up Solution

In order to provide maximum security and minimize damage to the surrounding commercial window frame, we used the tension emergency board up method whereby plywood is compressed around the existing window frame using several lengths of 2″x4″ lumber and carriage bolts to draw the plywood securely into place. The carriage bolt heads afford no purchase to would-be intruders and will not permit unwanted access.
The owner Jim made a point of contacting us Monday morning to thank us for our prompt and professional board up service on a national holiday. We were happy to be of service and sincerely appreciate our customers patronage.
