Superior Board-Up Services for Reinforcement and Vacant Property Protection

Whether it’s poverty, misfits or criminals, there is no sight more inviting than a home standing unoccupied with fragile glass being the only thing between them and getting inside. When we say “vacant property” we aren’t just referring to a home that is lacking tenants, our specialized services extend to all properties that require reinforced safety and security on their investment.

Board-Up Services: Protection and Reinforcements for Vacant Properties in Hermosa Beach.

There is a limited of Hermosa Beach number of board-up companies and services so why choose us? Guard Dog Secure was created by David & Joe whose niches were securing and restoring vacant properties to their former glory or into better versions of the original.

The gentlemen would often arrive at their property investments and find evidence of vandalism, vagrants, and general destruction due to the timber plywood boards being easily removed for access to the building. Because of this, they joined forces and brought Guard Dog Secure to life.

Reinforced Protection

As David and Joe knew that any normal board-up services would no longer suffice as protection for their investments, they made contact with local metal fabricators to assist in bringing their revolutionary idea to life.

After settling on design and material, the board-up panels were created and tested on vacant properties and the outcomes were phenomenal.

Not only did the galvanized steel panels deter vandals and vagrants, they also served as reinforced security when an attempted entry was blocked by panels that were impenetrable.

Why Choose Us?

At Guard Dog Secure we don’t believe that using timber plywood (even the heavy-duty CDX plywood) is enough to fully secure your investment.

More often than not, we are called out to replace timber board-up installations that have failed due to subpar materials used which have either deteriorated in wet climates or could not withstand forced entry in a Hermosa Beach home.

Not only do our boards get installed using specific equipment to avoid tampering, but they are made from galvanized steel with carefully placed vents to allow ventilation as well as prevent water damage from occurring during the rainy seasons.

Due to the material used and installation design, this also allows for our boards to be used in another area once you are done with them. This lowers production costs and allows us to provide you with services that are at a lower and more affordable rate. We also provide emergency board up services in a pinch.

Estate Agencies and Investors

There is always an ebb and flow in demand when it comes to renting or selling properties, but its always the better option to board up vacant properties for a few reasons:

●       Deter potential trespassing

●       Help keep the property in a good state

●       Open opportunities to have the property noticed by potential buyers/ tenants

Property Expropriation

Often, one of the most targeted of all vacant properties is a foreclosure or expropriated building as they are the most vulnerable.

It’s difficult having to manage or be responsible for such a property and the last thing you need is for the property to be vandalized or unauthorized occupants taking up residence.

With Guard Dog Secure you can focus on moving forward knowing that the property is secured and threat-free.
