Storms can damage homes in varying levels. The presence of strong winds and hail can cause major damage to home siding and roofing, necessitating siding and roof repair.
Hail can dent sidings and roofs. Projectiles thrown by strong winds can also cause massive damage, making siding and roof replacement important. You’ll need to know how to handle these things in the event of a storm.
Storm-damaged siding often needs replacement as dented siding cannot be repaired. Here are some things you can do in the event your siding gets dented by a storm.
Find a match
Replacing dented siding with new panels might prove to be a challenge, but it’s often the only thing homeowners can do once their siding is damaged. The challenge here is posed by several possible scenarios: the manufacturer has stopped producing the siding, or might be out of business.
If a suitable replacement cannot be found and the siding is relatively old and in need of replacement, it just might be better to re-side the home entirely. This way, the whole property gets matching siding that can be expected to last.
Check your policy
Homeowners who opt to re-side their entire property need to check their insurance policy to know if re-siding costs will be covered or not.
Some policies include extra provisions for re-siding the entire property. Some don’t. Homeowners should review their policy and check if this is covered; otherwise they should not expect their insurance company to pay.
