The Trick to getting Window Wraps Approved
If you’re replacing siding, chances are, you’re going to need to replace window wraps as well. So, how do you get the insurance company to approve it?
Well, the trick is, there is no trick. As we often say, the best way to get items approved is to prove the items need to be replaced. And to prove it, you need to show documentation.
HOW TO SHOW DAMAGE
The best way to document damage to the window wrap is to use chalk to highlight the indentations. Make sure to use a contrasting chalk color.
Take an overview photo of the window after you have chalked it and then get a close-up photo (this is 2 photos per window wrap).
ADDITIONAL ITEMS TO DOCUMENT DURING PRODUCTION
You can usually get window wraps approved by the insurance company by showing that the wraps are heavily caulked to the siding OR when the window wraps are on top of the siding when you are replacing the siding. Be sure to take good photos to support the request for these items.
