You should be fine with a smart repair if on a pillar and and it being pulled out a bit and filled.

Sorry to hear about the damage, who dropped the ladder? Are they paying?

Any pics of the damage?

give chipsway a call as well, since it will most likely be a smart repair and they will just contract it out to someone anyway. Might as well save yourself the mark up
