PAINTLESS DENT REPAIR
Also known as PDR, is a method of removing minor dents from the body of a vehicle. The most common use for PDR is repairing hail damage, door dings, minor creases, large dents and body-line damage. PDR is used on reasonable-sized dents where the paint is still in tact. If your car's paint was chipped or cracked it's not a candidate for paintless dent removal. Dents from tiny dings that are barely visible, up to huge foot-wide cave-ins can be repaired. The main requirement is that there are no sharp ridges in the dent or cracks in the paint. If the vehicle’s paint is still an intact, smooth surface, the dent will likely be able to be pushed back. If the paint is cracked, it will remain cracked. Sharp ridges will also leave a mark on the metal no matter how careful the repair attempt.
Traditional dent repair fills in dents with paint or body filler, which is then matched to the rest of the vehicle’s exterior. While this process can make a vehicle look as good as new, it doesn’t address the actual dent in a way that is a long-term solution. It’s also time-consuming, expensive and can impact the re-sale value of your vehicle.
Paintless Dent Repair, on the other hand, requires no fillers and no sanding. More and more consumers are finding PDR to be an effective and affordable alternative to getting minor body repairs done. PDR offers more than traditional dent repair and is a great way to care for the condition of your vehicle’s exterior in an affordable way.
