The first thing visitors, passerbys, or potential buyers notice about your Minnesota home is the exterior siding, the roof, curb appeal and overall appearance. The siding on your home is used for protection as well as aesthetic appeal. It is the external shell of your house, therefore you want it to be properly maintained so it provides an attractive appearance. The sun, hail, wind, rain, and most of the harsh elements in the Twin Cities will damage siding over time.

How Much Does Matching Siding Coverage Cost?
Much like other home insurance products, the additional cost to your premium is related to the value and type of siding you currently have on your home. The good news is, this coverage is generally quite affordable.
Home siding is the protective material attached to the exterior of your home’s structure. One of siding’s most noticeable purposes is aesthetics, since the material you choose greatly influences the look of your home. Siding also protects your home from weather, improves insulation, and can impact the resale value of your home.
There are many options for the type of siding on a home, but two of the most popular are vinyl and metal. Read below to learn more about each type of home siding:
Vinyl siding is one of the most common types of siding due to its durability, affordability, color options, and textures. Vinyl can be installed quickly, even over existing materials, which helps reduce labor costs.
Long-lasting and durable, metal siding is another popular option because it outlives many other types of exterior materials. You can choose a metal siding that actually looks like metal or a more natural look with imitation wood made from metals.
The Importance of Matching Siding
Why is it important to have matching siding? For starters, a home with matching siding simply looks better! However, siding can also affect the value of your home. Mismatched siding may reduce your home value, so having this matching siding coverage in place before there’s a covered loss is important if you want to maintain matching siding, as well as sustain the value of your home.
Vinyl and Metal Siding Coverage
Wind storms and hail damage to siding are very common in our Minnesota climate. Hail as small as 0.75” can significantly damage your siding systems, and the damage is not always obvious to homeowners.
Sometimes homeowners don’t notice leaking and/or structural damage to the house until after several years. This is because the material could sustain cracks during a storm which become bigger with time and cause the roof or siding to fail.
Wind damage, however, is much more obvious. When you notice missing or loose pieces on your roof or siding you should contact a specialist to inspect and plan the necessary repairs or replacements to prevent more serious damages to your property. Exteriors Plus provides home siding repairs in the Twin Cities area — reach out to us today.
In almost every case, homeowner’s insurance will cover the costs of repair and replacement due to wind and hail damage. Here at Exteriors Plus, we specialize in helping homeowners navigate the insurance claim process to ensure that all damages are documented and assessed correctly and completely.
The first step is to schedule a free inspection by calling us at 952-345-3408 to determine if your property has in fact sustained damage and then we can advise you on whether to open an insurance claim.
Matching Undamaged Vinyl or Metal Siding Coverage
Though you work hard to protect your home, you can still be faced with unexpected challenges. For instance, if the vinyl or metal siding on your home is hit with wind or tornado damage, finding replacement siding that’s an exact match can be difficult.
While your homeowners insurance replaces siding damage from specific types of losses, it only covers the parts of your home that are damaged, which can be a bigger deal than you’d think.
Let’s say the siding on two sides of your home blew off during a windstorm. Sure, wind is a covered loss and your homeowners policy will help pay to replace the siding that’s damaged or missing. Here’s the dilemma — when you contact the siding manufacturer, you may find out that they discontinued your original siding. Now, you have to choose a different type of siding and it doesn’t match!
This problem is actually pretty common — Exteriors Plus is here to help with our matching undamaged vinyl or metal siding coverage.

If anyone is needing a new roof, windows, gutters or any other construction work i would definitely give then a call and ask for Ian, he will make sure your questions are answered and the jobs gets done!
Well Oiled Machine! -Deanna Doyle
This company is a well-oiled machine! We had wind and hail damage and the first person we spoke with came to our house and met with our insurance adjuster. With patience and perseverance, this company worked with our insurance company to make sure they covered as much as possible. After our insurance company approved the siding we worked with Quy. Quy went above and beyond expectations. He came with samples of siding and educated us on the different types of siding, thickness and even created different mockups to give us ideas on color and style that would like nice for our house. Within a few days, a crew came to our house and completed the siding in four days. They were professional from start to finish and now our house looks amazing!
Highly Recommend Them! -Aimee Norasingh
We worked with Exteriors Plus for our roof and gutter replacement recently and I highly recommend them! The owner Quy responded really quickly and had his team come out the next day to check things out. After looking things over, they confirmed that we did have hail damage. This was the first time we have had damage and they were super helpful in helping us understand and navigate working with our insurance company and filing a claim. We had a big event coming up soon and had asked if they could work with us on the date to make sure things were done in time. The team was super quick in coming out and replacing the roof and worked the whole day. They were basically done after that. The gutters were replaced the following week and the team that came out was quick and did a really good job. They were amazing through the whole process and worked within our timeline! I highly recommend working with this company and will be letting anyone who asks know to work with Exteriors Plus....
