After a severe weather event like when a storm passes your location, it can cause severe damage to your siding and the rest of your exterior. As such, many homeowners rush to get a siding repair or replacement project. It can be stressful to deal with this situation. Here’s how you can effectively deal with a storm-damaged siding unit.
Look for a Suitable Replacement
When you have to replace a busted-up siding unit, it can be difficult to find the same siding panels due to some circumstances. For instance, the original siding manufacturer aren’t producing the siding unit anymore, or worse, they could even be out of business. In case this happens, don’t fret, since you can opt to reapply new siding to your whole home.
Signs of Siding Damage to be Wary of
Your exterior services expert will tell you that modern siding units are built to be inherently durable, stylish and easy to maintain. However, they can sustain massive damage if a storm passes your area. Here are some of the telltale signs of siding damage you should watch out for:
Cracking: You might find splits or cracks that run parallel to the siding, most likely in half circles on the gaps, ridges and valleys of your siding.
Chipping: You’ll find out if you have chipping issues if you find that piece of your siding has broken off from the structure. It could look like half-circle chips that have fallen below your siding panel ridge where impact resistance is at its lowest. It’s easier to see this kind of damage when you’re looking up from the bottom of your panels.
