Vacant properties. Firstly, it’s ideal if properties aren’t left vacant, but we know this can’t happen all the time, so if a property is to be empty for a long period consider having them boarded up to avoid vandals, squatters, arsonist, opportunists, etc.
Check your insurance policy. Make sure that your home and commercial property insurance covers you for any eventuality and that you’re still covered during glass replacement services.
Look for a company who can not only offer a boarding up service but who can also provide emergency glazing and repairs too. This saves you time and effort using different companies and can save you money too.
Leave all the glass in the window until the qualified team arrives. They will be able to handle and discard of any shards of glass appropriately and clear away any debris in the surrounding area.
For commercial properties, make sure all health and safety requirements are followed, and employees and customers are not put at further risk of injury.
Contact the police if necessary, especially in cases of burglary and vandalism.
Don’t leave broken windows unattended. They will not only get worse, but they can also cause injury, open up your property to further damage and attacks, and can invalidate your insurance policy!
Call an emergency boarding up service repair company immediately.
