If you hate the look of dents and dings on your vehicle's door, bumper or fender, but you worry about the cost of repainting, then Paintless Dent Repair is the right solution for you. The size of the damage and the location will impact whether or not PDR is the right technique for your vehicle, but most minor and unsightly dents caused by shopping carts or bumps in the road can easily be fixed this way. There are other limiting factors for a successful PDR, a very common one being the flexibility of the paint. However, today's vehicles mostly have refined paint finishes which do allow for successful paintless dent repair. The extent to which the metal has been stretched by the damage is another factor to consider before moving forward with such a technique, which is why our expert technicians will conduct a thorough assessment before proceeding with PDR.
Just as the location and size of the damage determine whether or not PDR is a solution for your car, they also determine how the process works. Some dents or creases require technicians to push out the dents from the metal panel, while other types may require the use of specially designed tabs to pull out the dents from the outside. In all cases though, the technicians are required to manipulate the metal in precise locations, using a PDR reading instrument called paintless dent repair light. It is important for the technician to be able to visualize the deformation of the dent, in order to be able to locate the tip of the tool. As this method of repair is intrinsically manual, it is equally important to have highly experienced and skilled technicians working on your vehicle.
The benefits of PDR are well-known - it is a quick and inexpensive alternative to having a vehicle repainted. But what are the benefits of PDR at CARSTAR? First, you'll benefit from an exhaustive damage assessment process, which is essential in determining not only the number of dents and dings to be fixed, but also their size, location and extent as these greatly impact the technique. You'll benefit from a detailed assessment followed by a detailed repair plan so that there are no surprises along the way. You'll be able to keep costs under control and get back on the road as soon as desired. You will also benefit from the expertise and skills of highly qualified technicians who have great experience in paintless dent repair and can work even with tricky dings or creases.
