While we know hurricanes and tornadoes can cause major structural damage to property, they aren’t the only types of storms to cause concern. Severe thunderstorms are responsible for a significant amount of property damage claims across the United States every year. These storms have the capability to produce damaging winds, rain, hail, sleet and even snow.
Severe thunderstorms can occur anywhere and have great potential to damage a home’s exterior, especially if it doesn’t have durable, quality siding. These storms can wreak havoc on siding, causing it to crack, tear and be torn away from the exterior altogether.
Steel siding is an extremely durable and environmentally-friendly option that can provide a high level of protection from the elements. Companies like Rollex and ABC Seamless make steel siding that is hail and wind resistant, fire resistant, and can tolerate damaging UV lights, extreme weather temperatures and humidity.
