When a home or business is hit with a sudden disaster it can cause an emotional shock. Going through a disaster of any kind that forces you to abandon your home or business can not only be devastating emotionally, but also financially.
A fire or hurricane tears up the lives of people, and it takes time for them to process the reality of their situation before they can begin their recovery. The victims feel their lives are turned upside down, but when they are able to take control of their situation and start the cleanup, that is when the healing begins.
When a disaster severely damages your home or business to the point that it is no longer habitable, you need to call in a professional disaster recovery team. When your home or business has been rendered structurally unsound, the first immediate need is to board it up and tarp it over until it can be renovated or demolished. This is an important first step to avoid further damage that can be caused by intruders or weathering.

Each one requires a plan of action specific to its own granular needs. We begin with a general set of routine guidelines that ensure quality service to each, and build a specific plan to fit your project and your desired outcome.
Inspecting the premises
First thing to do is inspect the premises to compile the details of your project and come up with a plan to accommodate the details of your project. After determining what type of materials we will need and the quantity, we can draft a plan with a feasible bid then present them to you.
Tarping Over and Boarding Up
Protecting the structure from the weather is an important part of the process, and one of the first things that must be done is covering the roof against the elements. Whether dealing with an old house or the aftermath of a fire, the roof will likely be compromised with holes or at least small leaks. Large thick covering will be laid on the roof, overlapping and secured keep the interior of your property dry, protected from the natural elements.
Another method for protecting your home is to install a tarp. This prevents further water intrusion caused by roof damage. Problems on the roof can be hard to spot without a thorough evaluation. Since the roof could be unstable, especially if the damage is severe, you want to leave the inspection to professionals. Between now and the time you can get roofers up there to examine the damage, utilize tarp over services to prevent various leaky areas from causing more damage to your home.
Windows and doors will be secured with barriers that will block intruders. Plywood sheets are attached to with four-inch screws to block any possible entrance onto the premises.
When the building is secured, and all entrances are blocked, we will conduct one last inspection followed by a walk-around with you to show you what has been done and to answer any questions.
