I have missing siding, does this mean I need a full replacement?
Has your siding lost pieces due to high winds, hail, or weather? Your siding may qualify for a siding repair or replacement. Missing or broking siding are only one of many signs that you home needs attention. To find out if your siding can be repaired or needs to be replaced, contact 301-687-2345 for a free, no obligation siding inspection from American Choice Exteriors.
Does my homeowner’s insurance cover siding damage and leaks?
It Depends. Working with insurance can be tough, but we’re pretty experienced at it. Our job is to be your personal advocate right from the start. Without an advocate, you are less likely to get the job done thoroughly and properly. Most insurance adjusters don’t spend the time walking around your home to document all the damage. They look for visible damage from far away and most of the time only pay for minor repairs. Our job is to make sure we walk your entire home with your adjuster to document all existing damage not visible from far away. Depending on the damage found, we’re usually able to have your siding and any other items replaced. American Choice Exteriors works very closely with insurance adjusters to ensure you get every penny you deserve.
Will my insurance go up? I don’t want to be canceled or put a “dent” in my insurance.
It’s one of the most asked questions. When it comes to homeowner’s insurance, you pay your premium in the event something happens to your home. Your mortgage company has a financial interest in your home as well. If you have documented damage, it’s the insurance companies’ responsibility to restore the home back to its original state without raising your premium or flagging your account. Now, if your neighborhood has been affected by a recent storm and many claims have been opened, then it’s possible the insurance will “blanket” the neighborhood and everyone’s premium will go up slightly.
Why can’t I find a random repairman to do the job?
Your siding is vital to the health of your home’s structure and internal condition. To botch repairs or wing a full replacement can lead to serious damages. Even more, you will end up spending both the time and money in performing the DIY roof project and then spend more time and money later on when you need to hire a professional to do it right.
What products do you use?
With American Choice Exteriors we only use quality Siding, Premium Synthetic Underlayment, Premium Insulation, and other high-end siding materials. We want to ensure you are “covered” by your new siding for many years to come. We know we are putting you in the best possible position come hail, wind, or water! Your siding will be the same quality siding we would use to cover our own family.
How do I know this is not a scam and that at the end of the process I won’t owe unexpected money?
American Choice Exteriors is as transparent as possible throughout the whole process. You are more than welcome to join our experienced inspector on your roof once we have completed our initial inspection so we can show you the findings. For those not able to climb their roof, we are more than happy to provide photos, live conference video call, or drone video to make you feel comfortable knowing what is going on with YOUR roof. Our goal is to make you feel secure every step of the way. We are upfront about any costs or potential costs so there are no surprises. At American Choice Exteriors we understand the unfortunate truth that so many people get taken advantage of – but our entire business is based on the principle that your comfort and satisfaction is our ONLY and NUMBER ONE priority.
How long will the entire process take?
From the moment you call us, your siding becomes our priority. We will send an inspector/project manager to your home at our next soonest availability, usually within 1-3 days, weather depending. If you are found to have damage that we believe is storm related, we will assist you in the insurance claim process. Otherwise, we will provide you with a complete and comprehensive estimate within one week of inspection. From that point forward, delivery of materials and installation usually take place within weeks, also depending on weather. Installation can take 1-3 days depending on the size, and location of your home..
