Rainbow International was highly responsive when we had a pipe burst in the single digit temperatures. The team was very thorough and the local owner was onsite for the entire project. Recommended.

Why Rainbow International?

Our experienced board-up technicians use powerful tools and proven techniques to make sure that all glass shards are collected/properly disposed of. Our emergency board-up solutions provide you with a temporary fix you can live with until the windows can be replaced.

The work we do:

  • prevents drafting of cold/hot air
  • keeps your window frames and exteriors safe from damage in the boarding-up process
  • offers real security

Additionally, our tarp-over service stops water intrusion caused by structural roof damage. Problems on the roof can be hard to spot without a thorough evaluation. Since the roof could be unstable, especially if the damage is severe, you want to leave the inspection to professionals.

Utilizing proven techniques and the most advanced equipment and supplies, our professional IIRCR-certified crews complete every job right, with an uncompromising commitment to service excellence and customer satisfaction. And we provide real-time status updates to you and your insurance company as the work is being completed. To schedule service any time day or night, call (888) 992-4174.

Preventative Service

If you live in a geographic location where windstorms, tornadoes or hurricanes are common, it's wise to look into preventative tarp-over and board-up services. After all, it's better to be safe than sorry.

If you decide it's wise to act before a particular storm hits, Rainbow International performs preventative:

  • window board-up service
  • garage door protection
  • rooftop wind damage prevention services

FEMA recommends certain preventative measures to reduce the likelihood of damage to windows, garage doors and rooftops by strong winds:

“Windows are particularly vulnerable components on most structures. Impact-resistant glazing or permanent storm shutters offer the best protection for windows. A second option is to laminate the glass with a thin film to keep the glass from shattering. You can also board-up windows with 5/8-inch plywood, cut to fit and ready to install. Tape does not prevent windows from breaking. Numerous manufacturers produce certified storm-resistant window and door products. Also reinforce garage doors against direct wind effects by using storm-resistant doors or by retrofitting existing doors with commercially available products. “Roof failures commonly cause major damage to buildings and their contents. Metal brackets and straps can strengthen the connections between the roof and wall systems. Brackets and straps should be attached at the studs and rafters, not to the plywood sheathing. The entire structure can be bolted to its foundation using anchor bolts along the foundation sill.”
