Pop Up Storms and Hail Damage in the Summer

Summertime can bring some nasty weather, including severe thunderstorms and hail. Pop up storms and hail damage in summer are a major concern for car owners. If you’re unlucky enough to have your car caught in a hail storm, you could end up with some serious damage. Here are four types of hail damage that can occur to your vehicle:

1. Dents:

Hailstones can create dents in your car’s body, especially if they’re large enough. In a severe enough hail storm, you can end up with dozens of small dents all over your vehicle.

2. Paint Damage:

Hail can also chip or scratch your car’s paint job. This type of damage is usually cosmetic and usually less severe than dents, but it still results in the need for repairs. Paint damage can make your car look older than it is and might allow for water infiltration that can lead to rust.

3. Cracked Glass and Lights:

The impact of hail can also crack your car’s windshield or break its headlights. This type of damage can be very dangerous, so it’s important to get it fixed as soon as possible.

4. Missing or Misaligned Mirrors:

Hail can also knock off your car’s mirrors or cause them to become misaligned. This type of damage can make it difficult to see while driving, so it’s important to have it repaired before getting back on the road.

If you find yourself caught in a hail storm, try to park in a covered area if possible. If not, pull over and put your flashers on until the storm passes. And if you do end up with hail damage, be sure to get it fixed as soon as possible to avoid any further further damage. Colors On Parade is your partner for mobile dent and scratch repair.
