How To Repair Hail Damage

Brooklyn Hail Repair

In Brooklyn, New York hail damage can occur seasonally and can be a major headache for Car Owners stuck in unexpected Hail Storms. Hail Storms and other storms have been severe in the US, even in the states where you hardly see hailstorms.

As a driver, you can be caught on the road by a severe hailstorm that is enough to cause intense damage to the exterior of your car. The parts of your car that are at a higher risk of hail damage are the roof, hood, and trunk.

A lot of drivers may not know the level of damage on their car that can be caused by hail storms. The U.S records more than five thousand major hailstorms. The III (Insurance Information Institute) also states that the U.S recorded 2.8 million hailstorms from the period of 2017-19. 758,000 were recorded in just 2019.

When you experience car hail damage, the minor and small dents and nicks can increase to more severe damage that is caused by huge chunks of hail hitting a vehicle with speed. If you ever get caught on the road by an intense hail storm, do not expect to have just 2 or 3 dents on your car. You will have to five close to 50 or more dents.

Car Hail Damage is not something that you can just do by yourself, especially when there are more complex, bigger, and deeper dents. If you do, the probability of worsening the situation is high. If you know that you want your car to be restored to perfection, then the best thing for you to do is to take it to a certified auto body shop like ours that can repair hail damage. You are just a call away from reaching us.

Repairing Hail Dents

There are two common methods of repairing car hail damage, and they are PDR (paintless dent repair) and BFA (body filler application). We make use of PDR to handle deeper and bigger dents, and also mirror dents. As you already know, the repair of a deeper/bigger dent will be more complex. We usually make use of the inside-out method. In this method, we will push the dent out from the inside to make the outside smooth. You can do this at any Brooklyn hair repair near you.

If the dents on your vehicle are medium or small-sized, then the affected area will have to be sand down, and then appropriate body filler will be used to fill the dents. Sometimes, if hail completely pummeled your car, then a whole body panel might need to be replaced.

When a Hail Storm Happens

A lot of people believe that severe hail storms usually occur during winter. But, New York Weather data says that it can happen during the early summer and in spring, within the months of March & June.

Hail Prevention Tips

There are professionals in place to help you repair your car’s hail damage. But, we still find it important that you prevent this damage. You can take some vital precautions that will reduce your car hail damage. If you are a starter, we recommend that you buy a high-quality car cover that can help to protect your vehicle from environmental factors and also from hail. Another option is to park your vehicle inside a garage. You can also find a carport where you will be parking your vehicle. Lastly, you need to always be vigilant. Immediately you sense that there is a storm approaching, quickly protect your vehicle.

Insurance Claims Assistance For Brooklyn Hail Repair

Let’s say that you decided not to have that minor front bumper damage repaired to save a few bucks, and the absorbers and/or bumper bar were weakened without your knowledge.  Later, you’re involved in another front-end accident, resulting in serious damage to the engine compartment.  An insurance adjuster could potentially inspect the vehicle and notice the old bumper damage. They may then determine that the previous damage structurally compromised the bumper’s integrity, allowing the force of the most recent crash to cause more-extensive and “unnecessary” repairs.  In a worst-case scenario, your insurance company has the right to decline your claim altogether, and then you’ll be forced to pay out-of-pocket for all the repairs.
