Repairing or replacing a siding after it sustains damage due to the elements can cost a significant amount. However, if you want to keep your home in top shape and your monthly bills as low as possible, it’s a job that will need to be done almost immediately. This is where insurance policies apply, as they can help you cover or recoup the costs of the repairs or replacement. When it comes to siding, however, there is a specific type of insurance you can take advantage of: matching siding coverage.
Here, Adams Roofing Professionals, Inc., the pros to approach if you need a roofer or siding installer, explains matching siding coverage and why matching siding is important.
What Is Matching Siding Coverage?
Usually, a homeowners insurance policy will cover the replacement of matching siding if the damage is caused by the perils indicated in said policy such as wind, hail, fire, or a tornado. Matching siding coverage, on the other hand, not only covers said damage but also helps you if the manufacturers have discontinued production of your home’s original siding, which is a more common occurrence than expected.
Should you face this dilemma, your provider will also reimburse you up to $20,000 to cover the costs of replacing the undamaged original siding. By doing so, your siding and roofing contractor can install an entirely new siding material around your home to prevent a mismatch.
Why Matching Siding Is Important
Looking at things now, it’s understandable if you feel like you’d be fine with mismatched siding. However, it’s actually vital that you make your siding materials match. For starters, it enhances your home’s overall aesthetic appeal, especially if you have plans of selling in the near future. Apart from that, it can also affect the value of your home. Mismatched siding can deal a blow to your home’s worth so if you want to sustain or increase your home’s value, make sure to have the siding match as much as possible.
