Coping with a disaster affecting your home or business is often a difficult process in itself, but handling an exposed building during a restoration can make that process even more difficult. When fire, floods, or other disastrous circumstances leave your building exposed to the elements, the damage can quickly accumulate. ServiceMaster DSI teams are experienced and well-equipped to handle all your restoration needs. When it comes to a comprehensive recovery, there is no replacement for our emergency board up services in Lakewood, CO.
Any open areas in your home or business, such as broken windows, structure wounds, or roof damage, can compromise the safety of untouched areas in your building. While vandals and thieves can play a role in further damaging your property, wind and weather are the primary concerns for buildings undergoing restoration. In cases of long-term restoration or severe damage, any exposed areas in a building must be sealed immediately.
Our board up services act as a way of temporarily weatherizing your home, protecting it against rain, wind, severe temperatures, humidity, and more. While most cases of weatherizing buildings are designed to make energy consumption more efficient, many methods of weatherization also work to seal a damaged or vacant building against the dangers of the elements.
These methods can include:
- Insulating and protecting exposed pipes
- Installing building wrap and temporary protective siding
- Securing proper ventilation to protect interiors
- Installing storm doors and windows
- Adding insulation where needed
- Sealing cracks in doors, windows, and other entryways
- Adding drains and waterproofing unprotected areas
- Sealing non-functioning air ducts and ventilation passages to the exterior
- Boarding up damaged areas
- Securing entire building against trespassersWeatherizing a building is beneficial in many situations, whether its purpose is energy conservation or emergency board up. Our board up teams can quickly secure your home or business, making it ready for a comprehensive recovery.
