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 CARSTAR #15384 in Rapid City, SD to have our expert technicians assess the damage to your vehicle and recommend the best course of action.
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.
