  If your vehicle has sustained a dent (large or small), paintless dent repair may be a viable option for auto body repair. Traditionally, repairing dents was a time-consuming and expensive process that required days of labor at your local body shop. This process has been drastically reduced in terms of both cost and time requirements thanks to paintless dent repair. While paintless dent repair cannot successfully repair every dent, it is effective in the vast majority of cases. This repair method is ideal for dent and ding repairs, particularly for vehicles damaged in hailstorms. The best part is that this repair will not break the bank and, in most cases, can be completed in a matter of minutes.

As previously stated, due to the nature of the damage, paintless dent repair cannot always be used. Typically, your vehicle will not be a good candidate for this type of auto body repair if the underlying metal has been torn, if sharp edges are embedded in the dent, if the dent has caused the paint to flake away or become scratched, if the dent is close to the edge of the panel, or if the same area has previously been damaged and repaired.

Paintless dent repair is best suited for dents that have not caused paint damage. This method eliminates the need for fillers, sanding, and painting, allowing your car to be back on the road in half the time and at half the cost. Paintless dent repair is also advantageous because there is no need to match the repair to the rest of the vehicle, which can be difficult to achieve because older paint may be lighter due to fading. Furthermore, because your car still has the original manufacturer’s paint job, you retain more equity in it. Not to mention, because there are no traditional repair requirements, it is less likely that you will have future problems with auto body repair. 

Paintless dent repair is a simple yet innovative concept. When the body person determines that your dent is a good candidate for PDR, he or she will look for the least invasive way to reach the affected area. This is usually done through a window or behind interior panels or trim that can be removed for access. The body person will use tools designed specifically for removing dents via PDR and will work carefully from the outside to the center of the dent. During this meticulous process, the dent will be eased out and the metal will return to its original shape. When PDR is done correctly, the dent will be completely removed without causing any damage to the paint. In fact, the paint should be in the same condition as it was before the dent occurred.

If your vehicle has dings and dents, now is the time to address the issue before it causes further damage. What are you waiting for with a simple, low-cost process like painless dent repair? Allow the professionals to handle it.
