Examples of Weather Damage

Weather damage typically happens during a storm but can also happen when areas see a string of bad weather, such as heavy rains for a few days. When your car is exposed to excessive moisture, the result is rust. To prevent the rust from spreading, get any signs of it taken care of at Chapman Collision Centers in NE Philadelphia or one of our other convenient locations. Hail is another common form of water damage resulting in dings and dents all over the roof, hood, and trunk of your vehicle. To remove these dents, you'll need weather damage auto body repair in the form of paintless dent repair. This is a fast, affordable, and easy way to repair weather-related damage by pushing out the dents from the underside of the body. Although it takes years, the sun is another way the weather can damage your car's body. Sitting in the constant sun causes the paint on your vehicle to fade and crack. Finally, wind causes branches and other debris to hit your car and cause damage.

Avoiding Weather Damage to Your Vehicle

To keep the exterior of your car or truck in pristine condition, it's best to keep it stored in a garage when not in use. If you don't have a garage, use a covered parking spot or opt for a car cover to keep the sun, wind, and rain off your vehicle. This will greatly minimize weather-related damage.

What to Do if Your Vehicle Has Weather Damage

If your car has flood damage, don't start it as this could damage your engine. Next, take photos of the surrounding area and your vehicle. Then, call your insurance company to submit a claim. The adjuster will come out and take their own photos to assess the damage. Next, call Chapman Collision Centers to schedule weather damage auto body repair.
