What Paintless Dent Repair Can Do For You

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.

All You Need To Know About PDR

Paintless Dent Repair is a faster, more affordable way to get your car in top shape by getting rid of unsightly dents and dings in the body. However, low costs and quick turnaround is not all you need to know about the process. There are some limitations to these types of repairs that you should consider before rushing to the auto shop. The general rule of thumb is that PDR works for minor dents and creases - but what is considered minor? Is it just the size that matters? No, sometimes even large creases and dents, several inches in diameter, can be fixed with paintless dent repair. Size is a factor indeed, but the extent to which the paint is stretched is also important. Sharp dents or dings, no matter how small, may require body filler and repainting. If your vehicle is suitable for PDR, then the process is indeed very straightforward. Our qualified technicians will use metal rods and body picks to push the dent out or special tabs to pull out the dents.

How To Choose PDR Services?

There are many factors that impact the success of paintless dent repair services, as well as the feasibility of such a solution. The most important of them all is finding the right PDR shop or the right technicians. The method involves careful manipulation of the metal in precise points and at the right height; therefore entrusting your car into the hands of experienced, skilled technicians is a must. This should be your first and foremost criteria when looking for PDR services.
