Hail damage claim advice and ITEL Labs

Back in May, we had a pretty good hail storm that damaged our roof and siding. We've had a local contractor and the Allstate adjustor out to inspect the damage. The roof is getting totally replaced, but only 2 sides of siding were damaged enough to qualify. Our house is 25 years old and covered in wood-grain aluminum so our contractor is pretty sure we should qualify for an entire wrap since the siding style is probably not made any more. Allstate called today and is asking that I send in a sample to ITEL Labs to see if they can match.
What are the chances that they can actually match the existing siding? The Allstate guy that called said that they would either replace the damaged sides with a matching siding or "repair according to state law" (Ohio). Is there anything else I can or should do? This is my first claim (hopefully last) and want to make sure I don't get short-changed. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

The chances of them matching the siding ( faded color and grain pattern) are extremely low.
