Boarding Service and Board Ups in Greater Ann Arbor areas
911 REO personnel are familiar with HUD requirements for boarding and can secure your property if it has been/is:
- Severely damaged by fire, flood or other natural disaster;
- Presents a safety hazard
- In a high vandalism area and boarding is the only reasonable means to protect the security of the property;
- The property is located in a pre-approved boarding area.
Board Up Services
When boarding is appropriate, all first floor windows and doors and all basement windows and doors will have plywood covering the entire opening and frame. The covering will be secured with carriage bolts. We will eliminate any health and safety hazard caused by any protruding bolts used to secure boarding. Nails will not be used Before and after photographs will be provided. There will be no boarding above the first floor unless entry is possible without use of a ladder, and the opening is large enough for a person to easily pass through. Openings above the first floor that do not meet this test will be secured but not boarded. Second story and higher openings are typically accessible only from attached properties, stairwells or fire escapes. If security bars are located on windows/doors, boarding will not be performed unless requested. Openings too small for a person to pass through, particularly pet openings in doors, will be secured but not boarded. To ensure that no hazards exist, we will remove all broken glass from the windows and surrounding interior and exterior areas.
All properties will be boarded in accordance with local codes. If local codes differ from HUD requirements herein, local codes supersede.
