Hail storms are hitting Texas more frequently and stronger than ever.
San Antonio, Houston, Austin, Helotes and Dallas area are suffering severe weather conditions.
The damage caused by a hail storm can weaken the structural integrity of the car’s body panels, so it’s in your best interest to get it fixed right away. Depending on the severity of the damage, the technicians at Elite Hail International may be able to smooth away the dents with no need for expensive painting and sanding.
Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is a cost-effective way to repair minor dents, dings, and creases in vehicles. It is a non-invasive process that does not require painting or sanding and can save time and money when it comes to repairing your vehicle. PDR also prevents further damage to the body of the car, especially when compared to traditional methods of dent repair. With PDR services, you can have your vehicle back on the road in no time without compromising on quality or safety.
Compared to traditional dent repair, which involves using paint or body filler, PDR needs no fillers or sanding. This means that instead of covering up the problem, we’ll give you a long-term solution that costs less and works better for minor repairs. If you ever want to resell your car, fixing the dents using PDR will maintain the resale value, as well.
PDR is not like typical bodywork. We’ll use picks and bumping hammers to slowly work out the dents and dings without further damaging the surface. Think of the process as something like metalworking where we straighten out the bumps caused by hail or other problems.
The process sounds fairly simple, but PDR takes a lot of skill to do properly, especially when you have many dents from something like a hailstorm. Rest assured, however, that at Elite Hail International, we know the process of getting your car back in top shape.
First, we’ll start by taking a look at the damage and finding all the dents in your vehicle. Some can be hard to see with the naked eye, which is why we use long fluorescent lights to highlight the flat surfaces of your car. We’ve worked on cars that have had dozens of hail dings, so we know how important marking each blemish is.
Next, we’ll work on the dent from the backside to straighten it out. To do this, we may need to remove somebody panels, tail lights, or even some interior panels very carefully. However, we may be able to workpieces lose without removing them for the right amount of access to the dent. Sometimes, we’ll drill an unnoticeable hole if we need to.
From here, the process takes time. We don’t want to push out the dent so much that it becomes raised instead of flat, so our skilled technicians will work slowly and with precision. Using our specialized tools, we’ll apply pressure to the dent to massage it back into its original position. Depending on the size of the dent, we’ll make use of different tools like a bumping pick or nylon plugs.
It’s our goal to complete your job in as little time as possible so that you can get back to your daily life. That’s why, depending on the extent of the damage to your car, we may be able to get the process done in around a day.
Of course, if you’ve brought your car in after a bad hail storm for PDR repairs, it will likely take a little longer for us to get every dent fixed. The process is non-invasive and quick, though, so even if you do come to see us for more extensive damage, we’re able to deal with a lot of dents at once to get you back out on the road as quickly as we can.
Now you know how PDR works, but before we start that process, there are a few things we’ll do first. To repair your vehicle properly, we’ll go over the estimates with you. Let our inspectors take a look at your vehicle to check out the dents caused by the hail. They’ll also work on finding any hidden damage.
We’ll work with you to find a convenient time to repair your vehicle and go through the PDR process. Let us find the damage, mark the dents, and work on the panels of your car to push out the dings. If we need to, we’ll bring your car to the paint shop next to check that it looks like it should. Then we reassemble and re-inspect your car to be sure it’s in the best condition possible.
Before we give your vehicle back to you, we’ll clean up everything to make it look like you never got in that hailstorm in the first place. Our technicians will do a final inspection and get your vehicle ready to deliver back to you. At this point, we’ll give you a call so you can pick up your car or truck, informing you of any changes in the process and reviewing the bill with you. We’ll even help you through the insurance process.
