At Central Auto Body Rebuilders, we see all kinds of damage to vehicles, but one type that we frequently encounter during certain times of the year is hail damage. Hailstorms can wreak havoc on cars, leaving them dented and damaged. Fortunately, there are options for repairing this damage, and we’re here to explain them.
Options for repairing hail damage include paintless dent repair, traditional repair, and windshield repair or replacement.
First, it’s important to understand what hail damage looks like. Hailstones can leave small dents in the body of a car, often in a circular shape. These dents can range in size from barely visible to large and noticeable. Additionally, hail can also cause cracks or chips in the windshield or windows. If your car has been through a hailstorm, it’s a good idea to inspect it closely to see if there is any damage.
Once you’ve determined that your car has hail damage, it’s time to consider your options for repairing it. There are a few different methods that can be used to repair hail damage, depending on the severity of the damage and the preferences of the car owner.

Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)

One popular method for repairing hail damage is paintless dent repair, or PDR. Paintless dent repairs are particularly effective for small to medium-sized dents, where the paint has not been damaged. PDR involves using specialized tools to massage the dent out from the back of the panel, without the need for painting. This can be a cost-effective and time-efficient option for repairing hail damage.

Traditional Repair

For larger or more severe dents, traditional repair methods may be necessary. This involves using body filler and paint to repair the damage. This process can be more time-consuming and expensive than PDR, but it can also be more effective for larger dents.

Windshield Repair or Replacement

Hail can also cause damage to the windshield or windows of a car. If the damage is small, it may be possible to repair it using resin injection. This involves filling the crack or chip with resin, which hardens and creates a bond that helps to prevent further cracking. However, if the damage is more severe, the windshield or window may need to be replaced.


If your car has been damaged by hail, you may be wondering about insurance coverage. In many cases, comprehensive insurance will cover the cost of repairs for hail damage. However, it’s important to check your policy to see what is covered and what your deductible is. Some insurance policies may also have restrictions on where you can have the repairs done, so be sure to check with your insurer before choosing a repair shop.

Choosing a Repair Shop

When choosing a repair shop for hail damage repair, it’s important to do your research. Look for a shop that has experience with hail damage repair and that uses high-quality materials and techniques. Additionally, it’s a good idea to check online reviews and ask for references from other customers.

In conclusion, hail damage can be a frustrating and unexpected occurrence for car owners. However, there are options for repairing this damage, including paintless dent repair, traditional repair, and windshield repair or replacement. It’s important to choose a reputable repair shop that has experience with hail damage repair and that uses high-quality materials and techniques.

These guys at Central are fantastic. Their goal is to do it RIGHT. They are easy to work with and super quick. Exceeds expectations. I’ve had paint less dent removal, a detail, and some front end damage. Outstanding for sure. If you see that red BMW coupe, that’s the one they keep looking great.

This is, by far, my favorite auto repair and body shop!!! Everyone is very nice and helpful to each need I've ever had, whether it be in auto repair or body work done. They have always gone above and beyond proving they are the place to go. This past week i was in an accident and i thought there was no hope for my car and when i got it back days later she looked better than when i had bought her 10 years ago! They all are truely gifted people and i'm grateful to be so lucky to have my cars fixed here. Everyone here always makes you feel welcomed and included in the process. I will continue to bring all my car's here while recommending Central to whom ever needs auto repairing.

Marcia C. 11/19/2019

Did an amazing job on my aunt's car. So thankful she got it done here instead of the local alternative for almost twice as much money. Her car was done in under a week vs 18 days as estimated by the other guys. Thanks so much for getting back on the road so quickly. And making the car look brand new!!
