Were you in Denver last week when the hail storm hit and golfball-sized hail rained down from the sky? If so, we hope that you were able to stay safe and that your siding was too! If your siding was damaged by the hail, don’t panic just yet! It can be fixed. You have options for repairing your hail-damaged siding. Below, our Denver team has discussed the matter in detail.
What to Do When Your Siding Is Damaged by Hail
If you know that your neighborhood was impacted by the recent hailstorm, it’s probably a good idea to inspect your siding. You want to make sure that there are no cracks or holes in the exterior where pests, water, or fungi can get in. To check your siding, simply walk around your home and look for signs of hail damage like cracks, chips, dents, or holes in the panels. If you see any signs of damage, you’ll want to make a plan to have it fixed. For this, you basically have two options: replace your siding or repair your hail-damaged siding. Our Denver team can help with both.
Repairing Vs. Replacing Hail Damaged Siding
When dealing with hail damage to siding, homeowners often face the decision of whether to replace or repair. Here’s a quick overview of the pros and cons of each option:
Replacing Hail Damaged Siding
When we say “replace,” we mean removing all of the siding covering your entire home and replacing it with new. Replacing your entire home’s siding has both advantages and disadvantages.
- Enhanced aesthetics and increased resale value.
- Opportunity to address underlying issues.
- Higher cost.
- Longer timeframe for completion.
Repairing Siding that’s Been Damaged by Hail
Instead of replacing all of your siding, you can elect to have the few damaged panels repaired. This is usually only a good option if the damage is limited to a small area.
- Cost-effective solution.
- Quicker completion time.
- Potential visible differences.
- Limited long-term durability.
When considering whether to replace or repair your hail-damaged siding, Denver homeowners will want to factor in their budget, aesthetic preferences, and the extent of the damage. Our professionals can provide guidance that’s tailored to your situation.
