NOTE: This post was written before Hurricane Irma hit Florida
As we write this it seems that Hurricane Irma is heading our way. In West Palm Beach it may be that we could get lucky and it just skirts the edge of the area, but we are not counting on that. Here at West Palm Beach Glass Repair we are rushed off our feet trying to get to as many customers as we possibly can for board up West Palm Beach, but unfortunately we won’t be able to get to everyone before Irma hits, if indeed it does.
It Might Skirt To Our West: Pre- and Post-Hurricane Board Up Services
Looking at the latest forecast a few minutes ago it seems just possible that the hurricane might skirt to the west of us and we only get caught on the fringe. Even so, if we escape the worst of it, there will still be damage with surges a distinct possibility. So it may have to be a case of DIY board up West Palm Beach for some people. Obviously we will do our utmost to get to everyone who has called us, and we are giving priority to businesses in the city just at the moment since they generally have far larger areas of glass to safeguard which make a DIY job difficult to say the least. As the #1 glass repair and board up business in the city of West Palm Beach, we are used to handling large glass panes and we have the knowhow and equipment to carry out the work.
Hurricanes and DIY Board Up
Of course, another problem if we do get a direct hit from Irma is the fact that buildings will still be needing board up West Palm Beach after it has passed. Sad to say that in the 21st century vandalism and theft will be rife, so if your business has suffered damage you are still going to need it boarded up to prevent the unwanted attentions of those who choose to take advantage.
Naturally we are all praying that Irma misses us and slows down considerably wherever it goes, but at the moment that does not look likely. We have not had a hurricane like this in the lifetime of most of us, and what’s worse is that Jose is following fairly closely behind Irma and as we write is described as almost Category 5.
It certainly does look as if we are in for a rough few days in West Palm Beach, but rest assured that at WPB Glass Repair we will do everything that we possibly can to ensure the safety of everyone and keep damage to a minimum.
