Severe storms, including hail and winds that are strong enough to send debris flying, can cause significant damage to exterior siding. As a homeowner, you need to know how to handle such situations. American Roofing & Construction, LLC shares what you need to do if your siding suffers damage from a storm.
Look for Matching Siding Panels
Siding panels that have been dented or punctured because of hailstones need to be replaced with new ones. However, it can be a challenge to find the exact same product as the ones installed on your home. In the event that a suitable replacement can’t be found, and your siding is already nearing the end of its life span, you’re better off replacing all of the panels entirely.
Review Your Insurance Policy
If you are looking to replace siding on your entire home, you should first review your insurance policy to determine if this project will be covered. Some policies may or may not include additional provisions, so it pays to read the fine print. Otherwise, you can’t expect your insurance company to cover the replacement.
Get in Touch with the Pros
Replacing your storm-damaged siding is not a DIY project. To make sure you get the most out of your new siding, leave this task to professionals. This way, you can rest easy knowing that the installation will be up to code and within manufacturer standards.
