If you experienced any damage from Hurricane Florence, it’s time to determine your options to repair your Charlotte home. You will, of course, need to file the necessary insurance claims. You’ll also need a trusted contractor to perform the repairs. Your home can look just as it did before the storm with renovations to the exterior of the home.

Even if you only experienced damage to some parts of your siding, you will likely need a full vinyl siding replacement for the home for it to look cohesive. You may be concerned that a project of this size will take a substantial amount of time while your home is exposed to the elements. First, you should consider protecting the area with a covering until the siding is replaced. Second, know that when you work with an experienced contractor, your project should follow a quick as possible timeline.
