Was Your Car Damaged By Hail?

Check Your Car for Hail Damage

If you live in Bucks, Chester, or Lehigh County and your car was parked outside during the storms during late May and early June, you should inspect your vehicle for signs of hail damage. Tell-tale indicators include:

  1. Dents on your roof, hood, or trunk.
  2. Missing or crooked mirrors.
  3. Cracked glass.
  4. Dented or stuck door jams.

Most Insurance Companies Cover Repairs From Hail Damage

If your vehicle was damaged by hail, you’re probably more concerned with cost. The good news is most major insurance companies consider hail damage “an act of nature,” meaning it’s covered under many comprehensive plans.

Additionally, we here at Direct Paint perform paintless dent repair whenever possible so that your vehicle can retain its factory finish. Many auto body shops prefer to replace damaged panels and repaint, which reduces the value of your vehicle.
