Since your siding is one of your home’s first lines of defense, hail damage repair experts say that you can expect it to sustain a significant amount of damage when a particularly strong storm arrives in your area. Often, these damages include chipped paint, cracking, chipping or even holes in the siding. Unfortunately, whenever siding sustains damage, many homeowners aren’t certain what to do next.
Here’s how you can deal with storm-related siding damage.
Understand Your Insurance Policy
Before anything else, be sure to read through your insurance policy again in order to understand what it covers. That way, you can get the best deal you can with your policy’s coverage. For instance, some policies may include an extra provision for re-siding your whole home even if only one portion of it was damaged.
Find a Match
After you’ve given your insurance policy a read through, it’s time to find a new siding for your home. According to experts, however, this can sometimes be tricky to pull off even with the aid of siding and roofing contractors as the original manufacturers of the siding may have gone out of business in the years since you first got your siding or they may no longer be producing the product. In those cases, it’s possible you may have to re-side your whole home so it’s best that you ask your insurance provider if they’ll cover the entirety of the work first.
Make a Claim
Before you make your claim, enlist the services of a siding expert first so they can give you an estimate for the job. That way, you’ll have some form of documentation to give to your insurance adjuster so you can justify your claim.
