How many have knocked a hole in vinyl siding? What did it cost to fix? I knocked a small hole in a salvage home so it was no big deal but I decided to get a chute blocker. I am just wondering how much repairs like these run, do they replace one piece of vinyl or do they have to remove several pieces to do the repair. I don't plan on finding out but I was just curious. I doubt I would turn this type thing in to the insurance, just pay it and be done. I've been lucky for several years and haven't done any damage to anything but you never know. I think a chute blocker is justified especially with some of my rougher accounts. Comments?
