After a recent storm, you may be considering a full replacement of your home’s exterior. But if you’re looking for a good siding material that can withstand the harshness of heavy rain and snow, which would be the best? While going for common materials like vinyl and brick may seem like a safe choice, they’re not always reliable and can be more costly to fix at times.
Below are some of the popular materials for home exteriors and how they can get damaged:
While durable under normal conditions, even vinyl siding can suffer major damage during a storm, such as cracking and chipping. Cracking, in particular, can be seen parallel to your siding, and, if several of these are spotted on your siding, it usually means your home’s exterior is in bad shape. The same applies to when you see chips on your siding as this means your siding has taken a certain amount of damage from hail or wind-driven debris.
Brick can usually do well against storms, but the window casings, flashing and trim can be very costly to repair. So, as soon as the storm passes, make sure you hire a professional to conduct a thorough property damage inspection of your brick home. Overlooking the damage won’t exactly be helpful when filing an insurance claim.
