It is tough to see your siding sustain damage during a severe storm. While this grim situation can leave you feeling defeated — especially when you are left with problems that need expensive repairs right away — there are a few actions that you can take to turn things around.

Siding Damage

  • Inspect the damage. Take a stroll around your home and check for damage to your siding. Take pictures of any damage you can find, such as dents, holes, warping and chipping. This can come in handy when working with your insurance company down the line.

  • Get an estimate. Even if your insurance company assigns someone to assess the amount of damage your home sustained, it is still a good idea to request an estimate from a trusted siding company for comparison purposes.

  • Review your insurance policy. You want to ensure that you are getting the best deal under your insurance policy. In many cases, insurance will cover siding replacement for each side of the home that was seriously affected by the storm, but you may be able to get more coverage if you know what to look for in a policy.

  • Contact your insurance agent. Contact your agent before you file a claim with your insurance company. If your agent deems it necessary to file a claim, they will send an adjuster to estimate the scope of the damage.

  • Do not wait to address the damage. Finally, do not wait to deal with siding damage. Cracks or holes can allow water to enter your home, causing mold growth, rot and other problems that can compromise your comfort and increase your utility bills.
