Emergency Boarding Up Service

There are lots of reasons why you may want to temporarily board up your property. It provides extremely effective security against intruders, squatters and pests such as cats, foxes etc. Here at Fife Joinery Services we provide a 24 hour emergency boarding up service and can rapidly get to your premises in order to make it fully secure. We cut the timber to size on site and fit it there and then for you. We keep the necessary timber and equipment on hand so will get your property boarded up extremely quickly following your call to us.f

The beauty of protecting your property with boarding is that it can be fitted over glass and doorways with the minimum of damage to existing glazing and door frames. It provides a very robust physical barrier against trespassers, squatters, vandals and local wildlife and we can come to remove it all once you are ready to open the property back up for use.

There are lots of reasons why you may want to temporarily board up your property…

Obviously security is the main reason why you would want to board up your premises. Maybe you are in-between tenants? Or you have had an accident or a break-in? If you are having major construction work it can also be a good idea to board up your property. It provides security against trespassers but also protects valuable tools and equipment that might be getting stored on your site whilst the work takes place. Most boarding up is done on a short term basis but we can equally board up a property permanently if you wish. This is quite often the case of properties awaiting demolition or houses caught up in lengthly probate or other legal cases.

The excellent protection that boarding your property brings saves it from deterioration due to bad weather and damp ingress. A property that is unoccupied with no heating on will rapidly deteriorate. It becomes the focus of nefarious elements locally and can quickly get vandalised, broken into and used for illegal activities. It can also become the home of squatters which makes it very difficult to put the property to use at a later date. All these activities will cost property owners far more than investing in boarding up the property to secure it whenever they first realise that it will be unoccupied for any length of time.
