Boarding/Re-glazing of Windows

Broken windows are boarded secure using the required thickness of plywood. The broken glass is removed, plywood is cut to size to fit the existing opening and secured in place with screws. On occasions, openings may be "bolt boarded," with bolts drilled through a 2 x 4 secured to the interior and through the plywood securing the material in place. Depending on City Codes the boards may have to be painted to match the color of the home to deter further vandalism by preventing the dwelling from "standing out" in the neighborhood. If the client or city requires re-glazing of windows, the broken glass is removed, the opening is measured and a piece of glass is cut to size and installed and caulked securely in place.
