Materials to Consider When Replacing Storm-Damaged Siding
One of the best ways to erase any trace of storm damage to your home is to get a new siding system. Besides, ravaged siding panels are not always worth saving. Revamping just the affected ones doesn’t change the fact that the older sections are going to age faster than the replacements. Plus, finding matching panels can be a challenge, which might affect your home’s curb appeal.
If your situation meets your insurance policy’s provisions for re-siding, KAT Construction recommends any of these materials:
Any storm damage restoration company would agree that vinyl is a favorite among homeowners because of its affordability. It appeals to every budget without sacrificing quality. Unlike genuine lumber, it’s not subject to decay. When it comes to aesthetics, it comes in a bevy of colors that never needs regular painting.
Comparable to vinyl on many levels, fiber cement can masquerade as wood or stucco but age like masonry. Made from cement, cellulose and sand, it owes its longevity to its non-combustibility, excellent pest and impact resistance and low thermal expansion coefficient. In turn, it retains its finish (be it field- or factory-applied) longer than other siding materials.
No storm damage roof repair and siding restoration specialist can deny steel’s resilience. It can outlive any of its counterpart on the market, which is proof of its incredible toughness. It may corrode over time, but it can normally retain its factory-coated finish indefinitely. When made from recycled content, it can be the greenest siding product you can buy.
If you like a traditional look and don’t mind a little maintenance, grace the sides of your home with wood. Its stock may have dropped over the years with the arrival of newer options, but its timeless appeal never fades. Available in different styles, you can accentuate and celebrate your home’s distinctive character with real wood.
