Painting and refinishing are two of the most expensive parts of vehicle repair. On the one hand, due to the high costs of quality color-matched automotive paint, and on the other hand, because of the high labor costs involved. If you'd like to get rid of unsightly dents and dings on your vehicle without incurring the high costs of painting and refinishing, then consider PDR. This technique is not only more affordable, but it also saves you time, as it usually takes far less time than having your vehicle painted. Not all types of damages can be fixed with paintless dent repair though. The size and location of the dent are also factors taken into consideration. Here, at CARSTAR #15216 in Red Bud, IL, we have qualified and experienced technicians to assess the extent of the damage on your vehicle's body and determine if PDR is indeed a possibility.
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.
A vehicle may go through many repairs or maintenance work during its lifetime and having the same qualified, experienced and skilled technicians performing these repairs can keep your car more on the road than in the shop. Finding the best place for your car that provides a wide range of services is therefore essential. Here, at CARSTAR #15216 in Red Bud, IL, we offer not only paintless dent repairs, but also hail damage car repairs, 24/7 accident assistance, fleet services and auto collision repairs.
