What is Paintless Dent Repair?
Paintless dent repair (PDR) is a process designed to remove dents and dings from your vehicle without damaging the original factory paint. This procedure is performed by gaining access to the backside of the dent and using specialized tools to massage the damaged area back to its original shape.
How long does it take to repair a dent using PDR?
Size, location, depth of the dent, and access will determine repair time. Most dents smaller than a quarter in size can be repaired in one to one and a half hours.
What are the beneﬁts of paintless dent repair?
- Maintaining your factory paint
- Increased resale value
- Faster repair time (normally the same day)
- Repairs can be made 100% invisible
Will PDR damage my paint?
No. Today’s modern factory paints are extremely ﬂexible and your paint will remain unharmed during the process.
Will my dent be 100% removed?
Most typical door dings, hail damage, and minor dents will be 100% gone. Larger more complex damage may have a slight ﬂaw when ﬁnished. If this is the case I will let you know exactly what to expect before I even start the repair. A trained eye will almost always be able to see a panel that has been reﬁnished at a body shop no matter how great of a job they did. A paintless repair that I say will have a minor ﬂaw will be way less noticeable than a reﬁnished panel would be.
Will my dents come back?
No. When PDR is performed properly the stretched metal is moved completely back into its original place, which returns all of the strength to the panel.
Can every dent be repaired using PDR? No.
There are limitations to our process, each dent is evaluated individually. Feel free to text us or email us a photo of your dent for a free assessment.
Can hail damage be repaired using the paintless dent removal process?
Yes. In most cases PDR is the preferred method over the body shops grinding, ﬁlling, replacing panels, and repainting.
