We are second only to Texas in the number of insurance claims for hail damage, and a recent analysis by State Farm showed that it paid more for hail and wind damage claims in Colorado than in any other state.

There are many types of damage you might suffer from hail, but after your house’s roof, car dents are the most common. We offer some tips to avoid hail damage, but you can’t always get around it. Fortunately, it’s often easy to repair dents from hail, and your car can be almost as good as new.

Spring Is Hail Season in Colorado

Officially, forecasts say that the hail season in Colorado runs from mid-April to mid-September. However, the most damaging storms are likely to occur in mid to late spring.

Hail forms when an updraft drives water droplets into the air where the temperature is below freezing. Eventually, hailstones grow too large for the air to hold aloft, and they drop to the ground, speeding through the warm air, which starts to melt them. In the spring, the freezing temperature zones are lower than in the late summer. This means that hailstones don’t have to fall through as much warm air before hitting the ground.

Even if the updrafts aren’t as strong in the spring, this shorter melting period means that we can easily get damaging hail at this time.

How We Repair Hail Damage Dents

Sometimes, we can use paintless dent repair for hail damage. In this case, we can just pop the dents back out. This means that we can repair hail damage for a fraction of the cost of traditional repairs and do it in a fraction of the time.

However, paintless dent repair doesn’t always work for hail damage. In these cases, we have to use traditional repair techniques.

When we give you your estimate, we will tell you which type of repair is required for your hail damage. Accurate and comprehensive estimates are part of our Focus On You Service System™.

As we noted above, insurance claims for hail damage are very common in Colorado. On the one hand, getting insurance to pay for your hail damage is great. After all, that’s what it’s there for.
