Emergency Boarding Up & Burglary Repairs

Keytek House Icon

Keytek® offers an emergency boarding up service for both commercial and residential properties across the UK 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

 

We here at Keytek® Locksmiths know that an accident, weather damage or a burglary can be an incredibly stressful time for you and your family, so our aim is to resolve the situation as quickly as possible with our 30 minute emergency response time*.

Our emergency boarding up services only uses the highest quality locally sourced parts  to speed up the process, ensuring that your property is secured quickly and efficiently, until a complete repair or replacement can take place. There are a range of different woods that can be used but we primarily use Plywood. Plywood offers both a visual deterrent when boarding up windows and boarding up a door whilst being durable enough to secure your property and can be used to fit any access point that needs securing.

 

Why We Use Plywood:

  • Suitable for short term or long term to secure access points
  • Budget alternative for securing a property following a break in
  • Can be used to provide security to an unoccupied property
  • Provides a flexible solution for all stages of construction or demolition.

 

Our highly skilled emergency Locksmiths attend promptly and are all DBS (formerly CRB) checked so you can be assured of the high standard, quality services of a Keytek® Locksmith and the security that they bring.

 

The Emergency Boarding Up Process

  • If you have been burgled, you’ll need to inform the police of the break in and any damage that has been caused. Locksmiths cannot do any work to a house until the police have given permission to do so.
  • Once you have been given the go ahead from the Police, it’s time to give Keytek® Locksmiths a call.
  • Our Locksmiths will arrive within 30 minutes* to board up your windows. They only use the highest grade Ply that’s sourced locally when boarding up, to give you the confidence that it will keep you secure. This is usually complete within an hour*.
  • You should get a replacement door organised as soon as possible. As failing to do so is a security risk and will invalidate your insurance.
