Are you thinking of a few door dings you’d like to have removed? Has your vehicle suffered from hail damage that needs to be repaired?
Paintless dent repair (PDR) is a method of removing dents from vehicles using specialized tools and careful attention to detail. Dents from an inch across to large cave-ins can be removed in a few hours.
The main requirement for the PDR method is that the paint coat over the dent is intact and uncracked.
How paintless dent repair works
Paintless dent repair is a careful process and done completely with hand tools. The technician opens up the vehicle body panels as necessary to be able to access the back side of the dent. Then the technician pushes and massages the dents out with a variety of special tools, some as simple as metal rods.
Every dent is corrected individually. There is no machine that can do this. Patience, skill and experience are key!
Benefits of paintless dent repair
With paintless dent repair, repainting is not required. The original paint and clearcoat remain. This keeps the original factory appearance and greatly reduces the cost of repairs.
For newer vehicles especially, removing dents can increase the value of your vehicle.
In addition, paintless dent repair does not go on your insurance record unless you want to file a claim – meaning you can keep your premiums low.
