Riots in Chicago – Restore Takes Action!

Following the May 30 protests, which turned into riots in the streets of Chicago, many businesses were left with shattered storefront windows and damage from looters.

As specialists in disaster restoration services, Restore aided over 20 businesses with emergency board-up services to protect their storefronts. The evening of Saturday, May 30 into the early hours of Sunday, May 31, protests turned into riots that caused serious damage, looting of merchandise, and even an unspeakable fire that burned an entire clothing store. Restore responded immediately when calls came in from multiple clients whose properties were damaged.


Many local businesses on Curtiss St. in Downers Grove took preventative measures to protect their storefronts when news of protests were coming their way. Below are photos of preventative board-up services provided by Restore.
