The truth about car hail damage…what you need to know!

Hail storms show no preference for which panels they damage on a vehicle. It is the severity of the storm and the size of the hail stones that determine the extent of the damage. While the roof, boot and bonnet are directly exposed to hail, hail storms that are combined with strong winds can damage every panel on a car. Small to medium sized hail stones can produce dents that can easily be repaired using paintless dent removal techniques, while larger hail stones can smash windows and damage panels beyond repair, leaving no other option than to completely replace the panels. In some cases, the damage can be so severe, that vehicles cannot be repaired at all.

Many people believe that hail damage can only be fixed by a panel beater, but this is not the case. Hail damage to a vehicle is best repaired by a paintless dent removal specialist. Even if you take your car to a panel shop to be repaired, in most cases the panel shop will immediately contact a paintless dent removal technician to come in to complete the work.

When hail dents are removed from a vehicle using paintless dent removal techniques, the factory paint finish on your vehicle is maintained. There are two paintless dent removal methods our technicians use when repairing hail damage. The first technique involves working behind the panel with specially designed tools to gently massage the dented metal back to its original shape. The second method uses a glue pulling system to remove the dents from the front of the panel. This method is often used in areas where there is no access available to the back of the panel. Both techniques bring your panels back to their pre-dent condition without affecting the paint on your vehicle. In contrast, when a panel shop repairs hail dents using traditional panel beating methods, your vehicle will end up with dents that have been filled with bog and painted over. This may leave your vehicle looking great in the short term, but leaves the factory paint finish compromised.
