Paintless dent repair (PDR) is a great way to remove minor dents and dings from the body of your car. Also commonly known as paintless dent removal, this method can be used for a wide range of damages, but only if the paint surface is intact. Often used to repair hail damage, bodylines damage, minor creases and door dings, PDR works on both aluminum and steel panels. Even if your car needs painting, the method can still be use to prep the damaged panel, therefore reducing the need for body filler and also reducing your costs. Paintless dent repair is not only quicker, but also a more affordable way of repairing this type of damage. Contact CARSTAR Richmond Collision Center in Richmond, VA to find out more about our PDR process and technique.
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.
