One thing paintless dent repair is good for is saving your money on getting hail damage repaired here along the front range. Since it hails here quite frequently–it is a good thing to have trusted hail repair specialists (like Untied Hail Pros) to get the job done quickly and covered by insurance. As easy as it is to get affordable hail damage fixed on your Denver area car –it is just as easy to NOT to save money–and here is how.
DIY Hail Repair
We have written about DIY hail repair in the past. What it boils down to is–there really is no good method to do hail repairs yourself. The dry ice method is not a real thing and any slight dent it repairs ends up wrecking the paint. Other methods resembling those we do in the shop take a novice a long time and require spending a lot of money on tools you may only use once. This is a good way to throw money away needlessly on attempting to fix your hail repair on your own.
Hail Repair Scams
There are fraudulent hail repair people all over Colorado–in Denver especially. Some have roadside stands set up in high traffic areas–with promises of inexpensive repairs. Others troll parking lots looking for hail-damaged cars. They will then approach the car owners with little more than a shoddy business card and pitch to get your car done fast and cheap. These people are just looking for a quick buck and are not in any way authorized by any sanctioning body or your insurance to work on your car. When they mess it up–you have zero recourse to get your money back or to be compensated for the further damage they did to your car.
Traditional Hail Repair
The way hail repair used to be repaired was by removing each affected panel, filling the dents and then repainting the whole car. In other words–a lot of work. This may have worked well before PDR technology but in today’s day and age, there really is no need to do so with most minor hail damages. Not only is this method horrible for the environment–it is also horrible for your Denver car. Why? Because when the panels on the body of your car are removed–the car is never the same again. Meaning your car loses value and may not be covered under its warranty anymore. Therefore, even if traditional hail repair is covered by your insurance–it could cost you a lot of headaches and money in the future.
