Using Paintless Dent Repair to Take Out Dents From Hail

So you want to know how Hail Damage is repaired with paintless dent removal. This video will show you the professional way that we take the hail dents out of your car using the Paintless Method.

There are some DIY methods of removing dents that may work for you but most probably won’t. You may have heard of taking dents out using dry ice or heating up the dent with a hair dryer and using the cold freezing air from an air duster can  that will pop the dents out. Maybe you can just pull them out with a plunger or suction cup. I have even heard people say they just leave it out in the hot sun and this will cause the hail dents to pop right out. The problem with these methods is that most of them will not work or provide a quality repair and you may just end up damaging the paint.

Professional Paintless Dent Removal

By using Professional Paintless Dent Repair to take out the hail dents, you are choosing the method that vehicle manufactures and insurance companies recommend to repair your vehicel with a better quality repair in a shorter amount of time.

We first have a big quarter to half dollar size dent that is out in the open area of the panel. You can see this in the video showing the underside of the hood. We us a special PDR tool with special tips on it that we use to get on the underside of the panel and then we will likely just push up the metal thus removing the dent.

This method of paintless dent repair you could try to do-it-yourself but if you don’t have any experience with it could be difficult because of the special techniques needed.  We use our special PDR lights to see exactly where we are pushing the dent from under the panel and we make several small little pushes with light pressure “massaging” up every little spot.

Some people have come to me and said they tried to remove the hail dents them self and they have just caused further damage that will not be possible to repair anymore with PDR. What will happen is if you go and push on the dent and you think you just gonna pop it out you actually bust the paint by pushing too hard or you can make little marks in the paint or in the metal from pushing too much.

Hail Damage Repair

This video shows hail dents being removed with paintless dent repair.

This Chevy SUV had about 40 hail dents in the roof. By removing the headliner we are able to make enough room to use our PDR tools to gently push each dent out from the underside of the panel.

Why Paintless Dent Removal is the Best Option

One question I am often asked is how do we repair the hail dents on the roof of a vehicle.

With Paintless Dent Removal (PDR), the process we use to remove the dents is by accessing the inside of the panel so that we can gently push the dents out. We do not actually use suction or some “magic” method to “pop out” the dents from the outside.

In order to make a proper repair with (PDR), we need to access the hail damage dents on the roof of the vehicle from the underside. We are able to do that by lowering the cars headliner. The cars headliner is one solid piece that is held in by several screws, bolts, and clips. Once these are removed, we are able to lower the headliner down to rest on the seats. When done properly and by an experienced technician, the headliner can be moved out of the way without any damage.

Below is a hail damaged vehicle from some Minnesota storms. The roof of this Toyota has over 200 hail dents. This shows the access gained by removing the headliner so that we will be able to push out the hail dents.
