Heavy winds and hailstorms can do a number on your property and usually, the first exterior components of your home to suffer damage are the roofing and siding. When a storm damages your home’s siding, the only choice outside of a full replacement may be to replace the affected panels. Once it’s dented, it’s dented for good and no amount of hammering can get it looking like it was. That’s why Moss Roofing, the leading siding and roofing contractor in the Indiana area, has put together these tips for a successful siding repair job after a heavy storm:
Finding a Perfect Match
When you need to replace damaged siding panels, it can be quite tricky to find new materials that match the look of existing panels. If your siding is old, it is possible that the original manufacturer might no longer be in business or that they no longer make the same product. At Moss Roofing, we work with some of the industry’s top brand manufacturers so we can help you source the right materials for the job. However, if the particular material is no longer on the market, you may have to re-side the whole house.
Understanding Your Insurance Coverage
As a top siding and roofing company, Moss Roofing offers professional assistance when it comes to insurance claims for storm damage. However, it is important to first understand what exactly is covered by your insurance policy. So if in the absence of matching replacement panels you decide to get whole new siding, you need to be sure your policy covers such a project. In some cases, the insurance adjuster may make an exception if the manufacturer went out of business, but it still pays to be fully acquainted with your policy just to be on the safe side.
Filing Your Claim
If it all checks out, call a highly rated siding contractor like Moss Roofing to give you an estimate and assist with the insurance claim process. We’ll work closely with you to ensure you get your fair due and that the new siding matches your preference.
