Colorado Hail Statistics
Colorado's damaging hail season is considered to be from mid-April to mid-August. Colorado's Front Range is located in the heart of "Hail Alley," which receives the highest frequency of large hail in North America. In the last 10 years, hailstorms have caused more than $3 billion in insured damage in Colorado.
If you carry comprehensive coverage on your auto policy, hail damage is covered by almost all insurance companies. Comprehensive insurance is optional, but if you live in a hail prone area, the insurance industry recommends this coverage.
Hail damage is considered an act of nature; therefore your rates shouldn’t go up as a result of your claim. However, the year after a large hail storm may see insurance companies raise comprehensive rates for everyone and homeowners insurance may increase due to roof replacement claims.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Paintless Dent Repair?
•By using specialized tools BumperDoc certified technicians remove dents by gently massaging the metal from its underside until it returns back to its original showroom form. Damages may also be repaired by bonding a ‘tab’ or other device to the exterior of the panel and pulling the dent from the outside. By using either one of these techniques, our technician is able to restore the panel’s appearance to pre-accidental condition without altering your vehicle’s original color or finish.
How much does it cost to repair hail damage?
•Hail damage pricing is based on how many dents and what size each panel of a vehicle has. So it varies from couple hundred dollars for a few dents on one panel to thousands of dollars for vehicles with a lot of damage.
Do you recommend using PDR or replacing panels?
•We recommend using the least obtrusive method possible to get your vehicle back to pre-damage state. We will always consider PDR first however if the panel has too much damage a replacement would be the best option.
I am not sure how much damage I have or if it is even worth filing an Insurance Claim. Can you help with this?
•Not a problem. Call BumperDoc at 264-6266 to set up an appointment for a quick, free ballpark estimate. We will look at your vehicle with you and go over how hail is quoted.
How can you help with my hail insurance claim?
•Bring your estimate into BumperDoc and we will make the repair a seamless process. We will take care of any Supplements for additional damage discovered and make sure your rental car is extended if needed. Supplements have no effect on your deductible and are an everyday part of working with insurance companies. If your insurance company states that either they or one of their “Approved” shops (read into this “shop under Insurance Company contract”) has to do the initial estimate that is ok. It is always your choice where to get your work done. It is actually an illegal practice called “steering” for an insurance company to say you have to use a certain shop. BumperDoc offers the same guaranties as body shops under contract with the insurance companies. The big difference is that we are beholden to YOU the Customer, not the Insurance Companies.
Initial car insurance claims are notoriously under-assessed. The insurance companies benefit by you thinking the hail damage isn’t too bad therefore cashing the check for $2000 (when there is actually $6000 in damage) and using the money for something else.
BumperDoc will make sure your repairs are done right and on time.
I am thinking about buying a car with hail damage. Can you help me with this?
