Siding – Storm Damage
When the storm rolls in, don’t forget to check your home or business’ siding in addition to the roof. Weather in Minnesota can be extreme, especially in cities like St. Paul, Minneapolis, Maple Grove, and Bloomington. Whether you’re facing intense thunderstorms, frigid snowstorms, or treacherous tornadoes and hail, your siding is there to protect you from damages. The more it needs to work to keep you and your family safe inside, the more likely it’ll get damaged. To make sure that your home or business’ siding is ready for the next storm, it’s important to take the time to inspect your siding and look for any evidence of storm damage. The sooner you get your siding repaired after it’s been damaged, the less likely the damage will spread.
If there is any evidence of siding damage, it’s going to be much easier to see than roof damage. One of the most notable signs of damage is hail damage as it tends to leave small holes alongside vinyl siding. This also frequently happens during strong winds when debris are whipped against the house. Depending on the severity of the storm, you should check for missing pieces of vinyl siding. If your siding isn’t in optimal condition, it can rip off during heavy winds. If you have wood siding, storm damage can manifest in water damage and flooding, which can lead to mold growth or rot. If you don’t get this taken care of soon after it starts, the rot can quickly spread and cause dangerous structural problems that can add up in costs quickly.
