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.
PDR is a more and more common technique used by auto body repair shops as it is a faster, more efficient and less expensive method of repairing minor dents, creases or dings. The techniques is based on the use of body picks and metal rods, which push out the dents from the underside of the panel. It can also be performed from the outside, using specially designed tabs and glue to pull the dents out. Once these steps are complete, a fine tuning is required, which oftentimes involves removing high spots by tapping down the repair. Not all dents or damages can be repaired this way, so contact our specialized technicians at A-CARR's CARSTAR in Chicago, IL to learn more and have your vehicle assessed. If PDR is the right technique for your vehicle, then it should be ready in 2 to 3 days, which is one of the great benefits of paintless dent repair.
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. Not only that, we'll also make the process as stress-free as possible for you. We liaise with the insurance, conduct thorough damage assessments, and make sure the car is delivered to you fully cleaned and in top shape.
