As the largest part of your home’s curb appeal, your siding should always look its best. Damaged siding, however, isn’t simply an aesthetic issue. Although it can lower the value of your home, there are more important issues that you should concern yourself with such as moisture problems.
Moss Roofing, a trusted roofing company in the area, shares a few tips to help you handle siding damage after a storm.
Call a Professional
Contact a reputable contractor to check the extent of damage on your siding. Ask for an estimate so that you have an amount you can refer to when it’s time to file a claim. Do this before going to your insurance agent.
Find Siding Materials That Match Your Existing Siding
Your roofing contractor will do their best to find an exact match to your existing siding. However, in the event that they are unable to find a match, you can opt to file for a supplemental claim to cover the cost of re-siding your entire home. Make sure to check the terms and conditions of your policy, especially if you’re keen on switching to a different material.
Examine the Terms of Your Insurance
Insurance companies typically determine the cost and scope of a re-siding job. But just to ensure you will be treated fairly, it’s important for you to know the contents of your insurance policy, specifically those relevant to re-siding your home. By knowing the coverage of your insurance, you are more likely to get the best deal out of your policy.
