If your home in Warwick, RI, sustains a fire, there is a good chance that it has compromised areas that may provide an opening for additional damage. After it is safe to enter the property, the next step is to board up any broken windows or holes in the roof. This may involve attaching temporary boards or tarps.

Benefits of Emergency Board Up Services

While it may be easy to get lost in the loss itself, covering exposed areas is beneficial in many ways, including:

In many cases, your insurance provider will require these services. If it doesn’t happen, it means risking your insurance coverage. While every policy is different, it will cover the damage from the event and not secondary damage caused by not securing the property.
Avoiding secondary damage is essential to maximizing your claim and reducing the amount of work that will be needed. If there is a hole in the roof and it starts to downpour, that means increased odds of mold growing in your home.
Tarping exposed areas minimizes the chances of critters and people entering the home without your permission. Avoiding vandalism and property loss are key benefits of board-up services.
