Driving in Rain Storm with Hail Damage

Hail Damage Repair Process in Phoenix, Arizona

Phoenix is most known for its blazing hot summers, but every so often, the valley of the sun also experiences damaging hail, causing car owners to need auto dent repair. Premier Coach Works is one of few auto body shops in the Phoenix, AZ area that offers hail damage repairs for auto body parts including the vehicle’s frame. Take a look at some common questions customers have about Arizona hail damage repair for their vehicles.

WHY DOES HAIL DAMAGE MY CAR’S AUTO BODY?

Hail is formed when cumulonimbus clouds form above 18,000 feet (Storm Spotter). The higher you go, the colder the air gets, so in a thunderstorm, updrafts in the wind current lift the raindrops into freezing temperatures. When the water freezes, it becomes too heavy and falls, accelerating as it does (NASA).

When ice falls from heights of 18,000 feet or higher, the gravitational pull adds force to even the smallest hail pellets. Most vehicles sustain surface damage when hail impacts at such a high rate of speed and force. Hail is typically pea-sized to quarter-sized, but the largest hail recorded was seven inches in diameter (NOAA). Can you imagine how much damage hail stones of that size could do?

We treat every dent as if it was the result of a collision. This allows us to look for underlying damage that might go unnoticed if Phoenix car owners did DIY dent repair. We remove all affected pieces from the vehicle to bump out any dents. We then fill any remaining imprints with auto body filler and sand them out to an effortless finish. At this point, our auto body technicians, who are among the top car painters in the Phoenix area, begin the certified auto paint processes. We put back together all the pieces of your vehicle and get it ready for pickup.
