Tampa Bay Board-Up


  • Drivers crash their cars into buildings an astonishing 60 times per day on average. Our Emergency Response Team will have your property secure within hours of the call.
  • It’s Hurricane Season. Do you need professional board-up services to protect your home and family? Don’t wait until the storm is knocking on your door to call.
  • Fires are the most common reason for board-up services. When fire trucks pull away, damage is still happening. Don’t be a victim a second time.
  • No power on site means no security… and thieves know it. Thieves listen to police band radios, and know what properties to target.
  • Your home or office is there to secure your valuable possessions. Without power, your windows are only as secure as the closest rock.
  • Non-invasive board up process maximizes security and minimizes secondary damage.
