What is Paintless Dent Repair
A dent or a ding is a small imperfection that should require a small solution. Other autobody shops may attempt to up-sell you a complex dent repair process, but usually, none of that is necessary. A Paintless Dent Repair is a straightforward solution that can return your car to its original state when performed by a professional.
The secret to the Paintless Dent Repair is to analyze the structural integrity of the dent from all angles. Having all of the information concerning the dent allows our experts to use specialized tools that can reshape and restore your vehicle. The reshaping is done by strategic “massages” done by our team. Usually, this involves massaging the dent from the inside and also massaging the dent from the exterior. This technique forces the paint and metal to not only return to its position before the dent but stay in that position for an indefinite amount of time. There are several ways to remove a dent, but the Paintless Dent Repair is a surefire way to avoid having to bring the car into the shop again. At its core, this technique is tackling the actual problem instead of masking it.
Perhaps the most attractive aspect of the Paintless Dent Repair is the fact that it has a significantly lower turn around time than any other dent removal technique. One of the most frustrating aspects of taking your car into the shop is not knowing when you are getting the car out of the shop. Not having your vehicle can impact your work life, personal life, and even your mental health. While other methods of dent removal may take several weeks, the Paintless Dent Repair can take just a few days. There have been some instances where a customer has come in with a fairly straightforward dent and left that same day with their dent gone and their car looking good as new. There is no other dent removal service that can be as fast as the PDR.
What Types of Dents Can PDR fix?
It probably does not surprise you to hear that hail can seriously damage your vehicle. When there is a hailstorm, be sure to park your car under a roof or inside of your garage. Avoiding long-term exposure to hail limits the risk that you will come out to find your car with dents all over its body. However, weather can be difficult to predict and if a sudden hail storm arrives while you are in bed then there is not much you can do. If you find yourself with hail damage, that is unfortunate, but the Paintless Dent Repair is actually ideal for hail damage and works on nearly any case of hail denting.
While the PDR is ideal for hail damage, but it can also be used on a variety of other imperfections. So long as it is a minor dent, there is a fair chance that the PDR can be used. Small dents or dings that have bent the metal but have not damaged the paint are all candidates for the Paintless Dent Removal procedure. The reason that hail damage is perfect for PDR is that it does not chip the paint when it causes the damage. When hail dents a vehicle, there is simply a structural abnormality. With our specialized tools and training, we can massage the metal back into place. If there is a dent that has scraped or damaged the paint, the vehicle may still have an unaesthetic look after the PDR process.
Lastly, there are a lot of applications of PDR when it comes to dents. The only restriction for this method is the year the car was made. From our experience, older cars cannot handle the Paintless Dent Repair. Newer cars are made with more robust materials and can handle the PDR. Cars that are 12+ years old are usually unable to be massaged back to their original condition because the paint begins to chip and deteriorate during the process.
As we stated earlier, the costs of the Paintless Dent Repair is much lower than other leading methods of dent removal. Many come to find that the repair is essentially free. This is because the PDR is actually the industry-preferred method of removing dents. Insurance companies prefer the PDR on the grounds that it is clearly the most effective and cost-effective way to fix your vehicle. Most auto insurance companies will cover the entire procedure, but this differs on a case by case basis.
