What To Do With Hail Damage To Your Siding?

Spring is here and that means there is potential for storms. Storms can have strong winds, hail and heavy rains. These elements can cause damage to your siding.

It’s easy to spot obvious damage, like a leaking roof or fallen tree. But what you may not realize is that the roof and tree weren’t the only areas affected by the storm. Your siding could be damaged as well.

If you see any small holes, missing pieces, chipped paint or dents in your siding; you’ll want to have a professional come out and inspect your home. There may also be damage you cannot see.

Either way, it’s important to get the siding fixed right away. Water damage or water in general can come through any broken piece of your siding panels and result in mold or even structural damage.

The first action to take once damage is spotted is calling a trained contactor who specializes in repair or replacing siding. They will have the knowledge and training needed to detect the siding damage and whether it needs to be replaced or repaired. An untrained eye will have problems figuring out how to remove or fix a siding panel.

Just make sure it doesn’t go untouched. If there are holes or even cracks in your siding from hail damage, water can seep through and cause moisture to get into the siding. This will wreak havoc on your home structure.
