With the skies now clear and the storm past, it’s time to start fixing the damage it has caused to your home exterior. The good news is that dealing with siding storm damage isn’t as complicated as you may think. STARR Roofing & Gutters, the premier roof maintenance company in the area, discusses what you should do next.
- Determine the extent of siding damage. Taking careful steps and giving storm debris a wide berth, walk around your home and note just how damaged your siding actually is. Direct sunlight can obscure some of the details, so perform your visual inspection during the late afternoon or early evening when it’s not too bright out.
Check for dents, cracks, holes, chipping, warping, or buckling on your home exterior. Don’t forget to take lots of photos for documentation. While you’re at it, photograph the existing condition of your roof and gutters, as well. These pictures will be handy later on when you’re filing a claim, increasing the chances of your siding, roofing, and gutter installation is covered.
- Get a quote from a local contractor. Your insurance provider will likely send an expert to give your damaged siding a look-see. While this is helpful, you should still request an impartial estimate from a third-party contractor so you can make a comparison.
- Don’t delay the solution. Putting off siding repair or replacement only makes the damage worse, not only compromising your home’s curb appeal but also leading to higher energy bills. You’ll need siding storm damage dealt with ASAP, and this means choosing a contractor who can provide the high-quality results you need. Make sure they are licensed and insured, with decades of experience backing their workmanship.
