Although the idea of a quick and affordable fix is always alluring, it is important to understand what can and what cannot be fixed with PDR. The end goal should always be a perfect looking auto body. Most commonly, paintless dent repair is used to fix hail damage, dents caused by shopping carts or banging doors, minor creases and so on. Usually, the size of the dent determines whether PDR is a possible fix or not. Sometimes though, even dents that are several inches in diameter can be fixed through this technique if the paint is not stretched. Shallow large creases can also be repaired with this method, but sharp dents and dings usually require body fillers and repainting. The experience of the technician is also a factor, so be sure to contact Collimotive CARSTAR Center in Winter Park, FL to have our expert technicians assess the damage to your vehicle and recommend the best course of action.
Like any other process in auto body repair services, PDR starts with a thorough assessment of your vehicle. It is important to locate all dents, dings or creases on your car and determine which ones can actually be fixed through this method. It is also critical to establish from the beginning the extent of the damage as some dents or creases, small as they may be, cannot be repaired with PDR if they are too sharp or if the paint has been stretched too much. Once the damage has been assessed and PDR approved, technicians will work on pushing or pulling out the dents from the metal panels, so that no filler or painting would be necessary. The process can take anywhere between 2 and 3 days and it is certainly a more affordable option than traditional repainting.
