the coucil have replaced the roof next door and have covered my fiesta xr2 mk2 in tile dust and a large amount of stones and wood that has hit it. They have agreed to valet the outside of the car to asses the damage. My question is if they offer to use a chip repair company to repair the damage as i have already found 11 fresh chips will this be good as new or can you tell that the chips have been repaired or do i need to go down the line of having the affected panels resprayed, just want to get my facts straight before i have the meeting with them

cheers neil

I imagine it depends on the age of the car, especially if you can't prove its condition beforehand.

Try Citizens Advice if you want to find out what is realistic.

If you told them that in advance then that certainly goes in your favour.

At the end of the day, they can probably just shrug their shoulders and tell you to take it up with the contractors that did the roof.

Unfortunately roofing contractors aren't the easiest of people to sort out as I've found out on a number of occasions.

you where right the roofing contractors ignored me and then told me there was no damage on my car so i went direct to the council and they are sorting it hopefully we will see i wont stop until its sorted as i have all the photographic evidence and you can tell that they are all fresh chips and not old ones. the roofing contractors paid for the car to be cleaned on the outside and then another contractor got more dust on the car today and tried to jet wash it off so i didnt know which has resulted in the nicely cleaned car being turned back into a dirty car again its not good they had done this without even knocking for permission so have photographs of this as well i think its just time to keep getting evidence so i have a good case if i have to take it to a solicitor.
