Boarding windows on a vacant property serves several important purposes:
1. Security: One of the primary reasons for boarding windows is to enhance the security of a vacant property.
Vacant buildings are often attractive targets for criminals, vandals, and squatters. By boarding up the windows, you create a physical barrier that deters unauthorized access, reducing the risk of break-ins, theft, and damage to the property.
2. Safety: Boarding windows also helps to ensure the safety of the property and surrounding areas.
Broken or damaged windows pose a significant hazard, as they can shatter easily and cause injuries to people nearby. By boarding up the windows, you prevent accidents and potential liability issues.
3. Protection from the elements: Vacant properties are vulnerable to weather-related damage.
Unprotected windows can allow rain, snow, wind, and debris to enter the building, leading to water damage, mold growth, and structural deterioration.
Boarding up the windows provides a temporary barrier against the elements, minimizing the potential for weather-related issues.
4. Preservation: Boarding windows on a vacant property helps to preserve its condition. Exposure to the elements, vandalism, and unauthorized entry can lead to severe damage and devaluation of the property.
By securing the windows, you protect the building’s interior from further harm and maintain its overall integrity.
5. Neighborhood appearance: Vacant properties with broken or damaged windows can be an eyesore in the community.
Neglected buildings can reduce property values and contribute to a sense of blight in the neighborhood.
Boarding up the windows improves the appearance of the property, which can positively impact the surrounding area.
It’s important to note that boarding windows should be considered a temporary solution, particularly if you’re looking to sell or lease the property.
Long-term vacancy or neglect can have negative effects on the property’s appeal and value.
It’s generally recommended to address the underlying issues, such as finding a tenant or implementing proper security measures, rather than relying solely on boarding up the windows.
