Hail And Dent Repair
If you find that your car is looking worse for the wear after a hail storm, you're not alone! Estimates from the insurance industry show that hail accounts for the 10th highest volume of insurance claims in a year!
Whether your car has suffered damage from one bad storm or it's been left outside all summer in bad weather, it's important to get damage fixed as soon as possible. Even if the damage appears to be minor, there may be additional problems that you wouldn't notice until later.
For instance, a large piece of hail may crack the roof or necessitate windshield repairs. If the roof is cracked, it might eventually start to leak and cause water damage, in addition to damage from hail. A cracked windshield can quickly worsen, especially in cold weather. If it were to shatter completely while the vehicle is being driven, you and anyone else in the vehicle or on the road nearby would be in serious danger. If the windshield cracks beyond repair, it would then need to be replaced.
Along with posing a safety risk, dents in your vehicle are an eyesore. If you can, try to take pictures of your car's exterior to document major hail dents before you bring your car in to us for repairs. Walk around the outside of your car to look for damage to other places too, such as the front and back lights.
The roof of the car might also be dented from hail. If you don't see damage right away, or if the damage appears to be minimal, take a flashlight out to look for imperfections on your car's exterior. Small indentations and places with missing paint are a good sign that your vehicle has suffered damage from hail.
If you notice this damage, take photographs both at a distance and close-up to document damage. Having photographs to work with, benefits us and your insurance company.
