Storms can cause damage in many ways. Strong winds carry projectiles that can cause extensive damage to the home’s exterior, particularly the roof and siding. The same can be said for hail, leaving dents and, at times, punctures on the roof and siding surface. When these unfortunate events happen, you must know how to handle these things as soon as the storm has passed.
In this blog, ATD Restoration, one of the top siding contractors in the area, shares steps to take when faced with the problem of storm-damaged siding.
Find a Matching Siding Replacement
Siding panels with visible dents or punctures detract from the curb appeal of your home, which is why they must be replaced with a new one. However, it can be quite challenging to find the one that matches the rest of the siding, especially if the manufacturer stopped producing the siding or the contractor responsible for installing them went out of business. Re-siding your entire home would be a more sensible option if there’s no suitable replacement and the rest of the siding is past its lifespan.
Review Your Current Insurance Policy
Before you begin the siding installation, make sure to check your insurance policy to determine whether the project costs will be covered or not. Some policies may or may not include additional provisions for re-siding the whole property, which is why homeowners must review them.
Give the Pros a Call
Replacing storm-damaged siding with a new one is a project best left in the hands of the professionals. You must get in touch with a trusted and experienced contractor so you can be sure the siding product they install is of the highest quality and they get the installation done right the first time. You have to make the most of it since a new siding is an important investment that will last a long time.
