At LaPointe Construction Board Up Services we offer a wide range of services to our clients from emergency response to re-roofing.  So what exactly is boarded up services or tarp over services?  Read on to find out what these services are and why they may be recommended to you.

Board Up Services

Windows are not unbreakable and sometimes a ball may be accidentally thrown through one or if you live in a hurricane zone you know how easily windows can be blown out.  No matter the reason for your damaged windows sometimes a board up is necessary.  Sometimes you might not be able to address a broken or damaged window right away.  In these cases it is important that you board it up.  This will give you the peace of mind you need as boarding up windows helps make your home safe immediately.  Your broken or damaged windows should remain boarded up until you can have your window replaced by a professional.

Tarp Over Services

Tarping over is another way you can help protect your home.  This technique is mainly used in situations where there is roof damage.  Tarping over will prevent water from leaking into your home until you can have your roof fixed properly.  While this sounds like a simple solution, identifying problems on the roof can be challenging without a thorough inspection and evaluation.  Because the roof may be unstable it is best to leave the inspection to professionals who are trained to handle these situations.  But until you can hire roofers to examine the damage we can offer you tarp services to prevent leaky areas from damaging your home.
