Preventing Vandalism

  • Talk to your insurance agent. Your current policy may not cover compensation for damages due to vandalism.
  • Ensure that adequate lighting surrounds your property. Whether they turn on at sundown or are motion-sensing, bright light can deter trespassers.
  • Install a security system complete with cameras, motion sensors, and alarms connected to the police or other security agency.
  • Install fencing if you’re able to.
  • Keep doors and windows locked.

 

What to Do If You’ve Been Vandalized

"Brick and mortar” structures are often targets for vandalism. Criminal damage to property or vehicles could include broken windows, graffiti, flooding, fire, or general defacement. Residences are even more susceptible in the aftermath of storms or fires, where initial damages create unintended points of entry. In any case, Menold can react quickly with the proper resources and tools to secure and protect your damaged property from unauthorized entry, then apply the correct solutions to return your home or your vehicle to a pre-vandalized state.

  • Start by contacting local authorities—even if the vandalism seems minor.
  • Call your insurance agent to see if you’re covered.
  • Safely clean up as much as possible. You still want guests or customers to be able to access the property.
  • Call Menold Construction and Restoration at 877-636-6537.

  • Assess all damage done to the property and work with your insurance as needed to ensure proper compensation.

  • Repair broken and damaged structures.
