Why Are Hail Storms Most Common In The Spring?
Spring is upon us and with it comes warmer weather, sunshine, and thunder & hail storms. In fact, did you know that hail storms are the most common & their most severe in the springtime? Intense weather reaches its peak in the spring because cold air from the North clashes with the warm, humid air coming in from the Gulf of Mexico. With this clash in cold & warm weather elements, fierce thunderstorms are often seen blanketing the central & southern United States. During these intense Spring thunderstorms, the updraft of air rising lifts droplets of water high into the below-freezing atmosphere. These accumulated balls of the now frozen water fall to the Earth as giant hailstones.
Is Hail Damage Covered By Your Insurance?
Central & Southern states, such as us here in North Carolina, often experience increasing larger size hailstones when springtime thunderstorms start to roll in. These hailstones can become as large as baseballs and can do significant damage to your vehicle & home. Because hail damage is often seen in the form of numerous small dings and dents throughout the entire body of your car, truck or SUV, having the damage repaired can often seem like a daunting task. Many people ask “Is hail damage repair covered by your auto insurance?” and the answer is yes. If you have comprehensive coverage on your vehicle you most likely are covered when it comes to hail damage repair. In fact, the U.S sees over 15 billion in losses due to auto & home insurance claims because of hail damage.
Does Paintless Dent Removal Work On Hail Damage?
When it comes to hail damage repair you have two options to remove all of the small dings & dents marring your vehicle’s surface. Paintless dent repair or traditional dent repair. Paintless dent repair, also known as PDR, is an environmentally friendly, auto dent removal technique that can be performed on MOST vehicles. It is less expensive & time-consuming than traditional dent repair and generally, no bodywork or paint matching is usually needed. PDR offers a safe & effective way to remove the abundance of small dents, dings & creases that are left from hail storms. An experienced & certified paintless dent removal expert utilizes special tools & techniques to gently massage away surface imperfections, restoring your vehicle to better than its original factory-like condition. In some cases, a paint correction service is needed before PDR can be performed to ensure the best results.
