When storms strike, it's hard to know what to expect. It's difficult to foresee the extent of the damages or the nature of it as well, but once the dust settles if your car has suffered any damage, then here's what you need to know about hail damage car repair. Firstly, it's not an exact process, because it is greatly influenced by the extent of the damage. If you're lucky, you may get away with a couple of dents that are not very sharp and can be repaired through PDR. If you're less lucky, then your vehicle may require conventional repairs which can be a very complex and lengthy process. One thing is certain though and very important: you should get your car assessed as quickly as possible. Paintless dent repairs don't usually take very long (anywhere between 2 and 3 days), but conventional repairs can take up to one month, so be prepared for such news.
Depending on the level of damage your car has suffered during the storm, we offer different options on how to repair the vehicle. The first step of the process though is assessing the level of damage and making sure everything is documented for the insurance company. The size and location of the damages will determine whether paintless dent repair is a feasible solution for your car. It is usually a great method for minor dents and creases and it doesn't take more than 2 to 3 days. If the vehicle paint is chipped or scratched, then conventional repairs will be needed. This is also the case if there are too many dents in the metal. Sometimes, the metal can be so stretched that entire panels would need replacing. The process can take up to a month, but you'll be able to see a detailed repair plan beforehand and you'll be regularly updated along the way.
