Damn! Another acronym!

For your windows it wouldn't hurt having plywood pre-cut to the correct sizes (and labeled ) for ease of boarding up..... Just as useful before the fact (hurricane warning), during civil unrest ( "CU" if you're collecting acronyms :lol: ) or after a break-in* or football/glass interface error.

While I have a range of tarps, I store them in the attic :oops:




*Related note: I once secured a door with broken locks by screwing a second set of hinges on the 'open' side, this would also work if it had been forced

Now THAT is a great idea. Simple and effective, thanks. :)

I do have pre cut boards ready to go.Mainly in case of windows accidentally being broken.Hopefully they will never be needed.
