Roof repair need advice

Recommended Posts

NCTyphoonKid

So today I woke up to a nightmare my shed collapsed on top of my Lumina and Tahoe. It crushed the roof in on my Lumina structurally I think it’s ok, I need some advice on repairing the roof and getting it straightened back out. Anyone have any tips. I will get some better pictures this week. I took it to my moms to store in her garage for the time being.

that sucks. Might have to reskin it if it is too wavy

That’s what I’m afraid of. I’m just trying to think of how to push it back out. My thought is to take  the seats and headliner out and very slowly jack it up with a jack and some wood and try and get it out

I think you could get away with cutting it back to a non mangled section, flanging the edges, and welding a hunk off another car in.

You could potentially jack it up and use a hammer and sandbag to get the shape close enough for filler.

I got the biggest part of the dent removed from the roof. Just have to small areas to get out one near the front and one near the back. I got in the car and just pushed it back up and it popped out

Are you going to be able to get your money back from the P.O.S carport?

It’s not even worth filing a claim. My deductible is 1000 dollars, the carport was 900

I mean the carport company. That looked new and it's documented how much snow fell and what it weighs per in2.

There should be grounds for a refund.

Dang, that crease in the back looks kinda deep.  Wonder if the roof braces stopped it or they got bent too.

You going to pull the headliner out and beat the rest of it out or just slap new glass in and rock the dents?

I’m going to pull the headliner and get them out so I can inspect and make sure there’s no damage hiding.

It’s several years old they would probably make excuses and I just don’t have money for a lawsuit either
