What to Do About Storm-Damaged Siding

Any major weather event can cause damage to your home exterior, not only compromising its aesthetics, but fast-tracking its deterioration, as well. You’ll want to deal with storm damage to your siding quickly, but how exactly do you get started? One of the premier siding and roofing companies in the area, Oberg Roofing & Remodeling Inc., shares the first crucial steps.

  1. Have your siding checked professionally. This way, you can determine the appropriate solution to its storm damage. Has the siding sustained chipping or denting?  Once dented or chipped, the siding will remain in that condition. In the meantime, the holes and openings created by storm damage allows moisture to seep behind the siding. One possible solution to this is having just the affected panels replaced. Consult your choice of siding expert whether this will be a viable option.  
  1. Find siding that matches your current one. Of course, replacing just the damaged panels can lead to a potential issue: the new panels may not match with the existing ones. You’ll want your siding to look smooth and consistent–not a patchwork of different color tones. For this reason, make sure to choose new siding panels that will closely resemble the old ones. And if you can’t find a match? Then investing in completely new siding is your only option. Oberg Roofing & Remodeling Inc. can help you with this. Aside from roof replacement, we also offer a variety of exterior renovation services, including new siding installation.
  1. Learn more about your coverage. It seems a bit much to have a new siding installed just because some panels are damaged by a storm. But take a closer look at your insurance policy–there may be an additional provision there that allows for a siding replacement even when only a few sections of the exterior have been compromised. Before making your claim, however, have a trusted company like Oberg Roofing & Remodeling Inc. perform a comprehensive storm damage assessment of your siding.
