Life can be chaotic, and emergencies happen often when we least expect it. When storms, accidents, fire, flood, or crime strike, homes and buildings often suffer structural damage. If that damage isn’t mitigated right away, it can quickly become catastrophic for those structures and cost home and business owners even more money to repair. It’s for situations like these that Case Construction offers our board-up services.
What Are Board-up Services
Board-up services are steps taken to protect the home or building from further damage in an emergency - quick but temporary protective measures taken to limit damage from the elements until more comprehensive repairs can be done. This includes boarding up windows and doors to stop rain or thieves from accessing the building, removing broken glass, and tarping up damaged roofs.
Specifically, when Case Construction gets a call for a board up, these are the steps we take to mitigate the emergency:
- We offer assistance to any victims on the property to make sure their immediate needs for safety and shelter are met.
- We board up any broken doors or windows.
- We secure the structure to stop any more damage from occurring.
- We tarp the roof if it has sustained damage.
- We clear any downed trees and larger branches that have fallen on the building.
- We rent generators if the owner needs one to continue to provide power to the building.
- We remove any hazardous waste or burned items from the property.
- We remediate smoke damage if a fire has occurred.
- We clean up any flooding, extract water from carpets, and dry the property.
- We arrange to have any damaged fabrics and electronics cleaned and restored.
To first responders
We ensure a seamless bridge to restoration when you’ve finished your work at the emergency site. We understand where your job ends and ours begins and the importance of securing a property so that your work will not be questioned and you will not have to handle complaints from the home or business owner later. Because we want to be the company you call on during an emergency, Case Construction offers fire departments this guarantee: If the homeowner cannot pay for the board-up services Case provides, it will not hold the fire department financially responsible for the costs incurred.
To insurance agents, claims adjusters, and third-party administrators:
We know that you want your policyholders to be satisfied with we do on their behalf while also being conscious of the cost of repair and remediation. We work with insurance companies to increase trust and transparency and keep costs down while still providing excellent service to the home and business owners.
To property owners:
Many homeowners will wonder if board-up services are covered under their homeowner’s insurance if those services are provided immediately without an insurance agent or adjustor approving the services. We pledge to you to work with your insurance company and to provide you with crucial protective services when you need them the most.
