LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Since Monday, Kent Baugh with American Dent Works has been inundated with customers with hail damage to their vehicles. 

Most of the damage is dented hoods and roofs and cracked and shattered windshields on cars that were parked in the Fern Creek area during Saturday’s hail storm.

Baugh travels the country following hail storms.  His company aims to fix dents without removing paneling or requiring touch up paint. 

Baugh says he hasn’t seen this much hail damage in Louisville since 1996. 

As a result he’s seen a heavy flow of customers over the last two days with everything from moderate to extreme auto damage about $2,000 to $4,000 per car.
