Fire Board-Up

Protect Your Damaged Property With Fire Board-Up Services

Boarding and tarping exposed areas after a property fire is crucial in preventing additional harm to your home or business from weather, theft, and the elements. Improper installation leaves them vulnerable before restoration is completed.

The Restoration Group in Milford, DE follows established protocols to safely secure fire-impacted structures of any size. Our IICRC-certified technicians carry the necessary supplies to safely secure the structure. We address urgent board-up requests 24/7, safety permitting.

Types of Fire-Related Damage

Flames, extreme heat, and related destruction damage homes and businesses in minutes. However, the damage can escalate over subsequent hours, days, or weeks.

Several elements require rapid response following fire related damage, including:

Water Damage

Suppression water permeates buildings, harming finishes and structural components. This moisture enables mold, warping, and corrosion that continues to increase property damage.

Smoke Damage

Residue from burnt materials bonds to surfaces and penetrates deep into porous construction materials and fabrics. Toxins and particulates contaminate HVAC systems, causing them to spread beyond the fire-affected area.

Structural Instability

Supporting infrastructure, including floors, walls, and load-bearing elements, may be left severely compromised after extreme heat exposure.

Security Vulnerabilities

Forced entry by first responders and damaged windows and doors create opportunities for trespassing, theft, and additional vandalism at affected sites.

Weather Intrusion

Roof or wall destruction enables ongoing water incursion anytime storms strike before repairs are complete. These broken components can magnify restoration costs dramatically over time.

Fire Board-Up Process

From initial dispatch through site departure, we adhere to company protocols when securing fire-damaged buildings. Our step-by-step fire board-up process includes:

1. Emergency Dispatch

TRG maintains continual readiness to mobilize fire board-up crews. Both administrative staff and field technicians participate in an on-call rotation to ensure prompt availability 24/7.

2. Assess Damage On-Site

Upon arriving at a fire-damaged property, our team will prioritize safety and stability. Crews will assess all compromised areas that require sealing or reinforcement. Our teams take thorough notes, photos, and videos to best coordinate with restoration contractors on permanent repairs later.

3. Boarding and Tarping

Our technicians install temporary board up materials, including tarps after inspections are done. We carry all necessary supplies to safely secure the structure.
