Paintless dent repair (PDR), also known as paintless dent removal, describes a method of removing minor dents from the body of a motor vehicle. A wide range of damage can be repaired using PDR as long as the paint surface is intact. PDR may be used on both aluminum and steel panels
HOW IT WORKS?
The first step to any repair process is to assess the damage. Where is the dent? How big is the dent? How do we get to the dent? After assessing the damage, and determining it can be effectively removed through PDR (as 80-90% of all dents are), we prepare the area around the dent for the repair.
GETTING TO THE DENT
In most cases, PDR requires you to access the back side of the dent, which means carefully removing body panels, tail lights, or in some cases, interior panels. To perform PDR, you need a pathway to the dent. Once we have access to a dent, it’s time to perform the PDR repair. This is where the precision and expertise of our trained technicians comes into play.
GET A GOOD LOOK AT THE DENT
We uses a special led light board to give our technician a better look at the offending dent from their point-of-view. The led light displays a shadow of the dent, telling us where to precisely place tools on the back end of the dent to massage the body back to its original condition. Apply Slow Pressure to Work out the Dent Special tools are then utilized to carefully massage the exterior back to its original position. The PDR process can be completed with same day service, depending on a dent’s severity, and the results are amazing; even more so considering how non-invasive and quick the process really is.
WHY CHOOSE PDR? GO GREEN RECYCLE
Removing Hail Dents Doesn’t Damage the Environment Paintless dent removal is the most environmentally friendly way to repair hail dent damage. Unlike traditional body shop work, which introduces the chemicals found in paint, paint thinners, and paint removers into the environment, paintless dent repair is the ultimate in “re-use.” It simply takes advantage of the finish your vehicle acquired when it was manufactured. With paintless dent removal techniques, we avoid using hazardous chemicals. Instead, we use special tools that allow us to massage out the dents and preserve the paint your car already has. We take pride in our ability to give our customers’ vehicles that “like-new” finish while keeping the earth clean and uncontaminated.
