Weather extremes can cause damage to various parts of your home, including your siding. After an event like this hits your area, it is best to contact a storm damage repair expert for an inspection. Keep in mind that sometimes, not all signs of problems are apparent until they have spread.
Continue reading to determine how to deal with siding damage after a storm.
Know What’s In Your Insurance Policy
Before contacting your insurer, check your policy and make sure you understand what your insurance does and does not cover. See if your policy includes an added provision for a whole-house siding replacement even if only a part of your property has been damaged.
Look for a Matching Material
If you are only replacing damaged parts of your siding, you will need to find new materials that match the look of the existing ones. This task can be hard, especially if it has been years since your siding has been installed.
Sometimes, the manufacturer no longer makes the same type of siding. If this is the case, you should consider a siding replacement for your entire house. However, your insurer may not cover all the labor or materials for the project. Moreover, be sure to hire a skilled contractor for your new siding. As one of the area’s most experienced siding and roofing contractors, you can count on Allstar Construction for superior workmanship.
File a Claim
Before filing a claim, obtain estimates from multiple contractors first. Doing so will give you an idea of how much it would cost to repair or replace your siding. Usually, insurance companies use the same kind of platform contractors use to determine the cost of your project.
