While aluminum siding is intended to last for decades, the siding panels can be damaged. Severe hailstorms, a car bumping into the side of the house, and similar events can mean there is the need to make some type of repairs. The good news is that making an Aluminium Siding Repair is not difficult for a professional. Here is an idea of what will happen.
Assessing the Damage
Before any action is taken, the contractor will look closely at the level of damage. This makes it easier to determine what must be done in order to make the Aluminium Siding Repair and ensure the damaged panel looks just as good as it did in the past. Once the contractor finishes the inspection, it will be possible to tell the homeowner what must be done and provide an estimate.
Ordering Replacement Panels
While some types of damage can be repaired without having to replace the panel, the most common approach is to remove the old one and replace it with something new. In this scenario, the contractor will contact the manufacture of the siding and determine if the tight design, size, and color of panel is currently in stock. Even if the siding was installed years ago, there is a good chance that panels are available.
After verifying that the panels are in stock, the contractor will place an order on behalf of the client. In the best case scenario, the panels will arrive in a matter of days.
Removing and Replacing the Damaged Panels
The contractor will use special equipment to dislodge the damaged panel and inspect the area underneath. The goal is to determine if the insulation placed under the siding also needs to be replaced. Assuming it is still in good shape, it will be simple enough to slide the new panel into position and make sure it is secure. When there is no more than two or three panels to replace, the work can easily be completed in a couple of hours.
