Baseball Sized Hail Causes Major Hail Damage – North Texas

By 8 June 2018

Dallas-Forth Wort, Texas-Sized Hail Damage

When God and Mother Nature get together for coffee, sometimes the results aren’t all that great. Baseball-sized hail was on the menu for Northern Texas and the cities that fell in the path of these early summer hail storms were devastated.

Approximately 25,000 vehicles have moderate to severe auto hail damage and the estimated cost of repairs thus far is approximately $200 million dollars. That number is just in auto hail damage. The total estimated hail claims for this storm is $425 million. That’s a lot of hail.

On Wednesday, June 6 Star-Telegram said’

“It’s the most expensive storm in North Texas since a storm system struck Fort Worth and Arlington in 2016, causing $600 million in damage.”

The Dallas-Fort Worth area cities affected by this monster of a hail storm were Carrollton, Arlington, The Colony, Frisco, Plano, McKinney, Prosper, and Irving.

The hardest hit cities were Carrollton and Coppell.

What Can Be Repaired With Paintless Dent Repair?

So far, Auto Hail Repair Plano has done just under 40 auto hail damage estimates to determine the severity of damage and if they can be repaired with paintless dent repair. Out of the 40 we have seen, approximately 30 have passed the PDR “repairability” test.

If you have hail damage, the first step you should take is to file a hail damage claim with your insurance company. Next, call Auto Hail Repair Plano for your free damage assessment.

The following list of questions will assist you in determining if YOUR hail damage can be repaired with paintless dent repair. If you answer YES to any of the following questions, it is safe to assume that PDR might not be an option for ALL of your dent repair.

  • Is the paint chipped, cracked, or damaged in any way?
  • Is there any metal folding or creasing?

If the hail damage on your car chipped or cracked the paint, then you will need to find a reputable body shop to work with to restore your vehicle back to its pre-damaged condition.

Do Paintless Dent Repair Companies Repair Broken Windshields?

With a storm like this one, we see a lot of broken glass. Windshields get shattered when the formula of wind and hail is just right. When a hailstone(s) catches a ride on a strong gust of wind, they can easily bust out a windshield with little to no effort.

At Auto Hail Repair Plano, we work with windshield & glass repair companies all over Northern Texas. While we remove the dents, they repair or replace the glass.

ALL work comes with a Lifetime Warranty.
