Texas is the #1 state with the most hail claims paid for auto and home insurance with a staggering $474.6 million in losses and an average of 688 hail events per year. Hail damage can be devastating to any car owner, but with research and choosing the right body shop, repairs can be painless for both you and your wallet.
When cold air from the Northeast and Midwest combines with the moisture flowing in from the Gulf of Mexico, the two fronts can produce hailstones in Texas which rival the size of golf balls and grapefruits. Golf balls falling from the sky can produce some serious dings on the body of your car and even worse, cracks in your windshield.
Hail season in Texas typically occurs during the spring and summer months, with most hail storms occurring in April, May, and June. However, Texas is known for its year-round severe thunderstorms. Areas of Texas most susceptible to hail are the northern and western parts of the state, as well as the central regions including Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio.
Damage from Storms
Hail damage on your car usually ends up as dents, dings, or broken windows. The severity of the damage depends on the size and force of the hail, as well as the quality of the vehicle’s construction. If the damage is minor, it may be possible to repair it through techniques like paintless dent repair. If the damage is more severe, it may require extensive repairs, such as body panel replacement or repainting. In either case, it is important to have a qualified professional assess the damage and provide an estimate for repairs. You should never have to pay for an estimate — at DMG, we assess your damages and can often complete the repairs at no cost to you.
A hail damage on your vehicle is not only an eyesore on the road, but can also harm resale value. If you own the vehicle out-and-out, it’s your choice whether or not to seek out repairs – however we always recommend you take your car in to be repaired as soon as possible after a storm. If you have an existing unpaid loan or are leasing your vehicle, repairs may be required.
