PDR stands for Paintless Dent Repair, also known as Paintless Dent Removal. It is part of Dentology, a branch of auto body repairs that handles the elimination of minor pressure blemishes to metal. This technique requires a qualified, experienced technician to manipulate certain locations of the metal to the right height in order to be able to either push or pull out minor dents or dings. In layman terms, paintless dent removal is the repairing of minor vehicle body damage without the use of body filler and without having to repaint. Therefore, the technique is not only faster (usually taking between 2 and 3 days), but also more affordable. The location of the damage, the size, and the damage extent are all factors that determine the feasibility of PDR as a repair method.
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. To find out more about what PDR involves, contact our technicians at CARSTAR #15297 in Hayden, ID.
We have some of the best technicians in the field - it's as simple as that. Paintless Dent Repair has become very commonly used for fixing minor dents and dings, and the technique has evolved, but it still involves a high level of manual labor. The more skilled the technicians, the better the chances of repairing even larger dents. The location of the dent, the size and the extent are all factors that influence whether or not PDR is a feasible solution, but skilled and experienced technicians can certainly tip the balance.
