What is Paintless Dent Repair?

Paintless Dent Repair or PDR is a method of removing minor dents and dings without removing any paint from the vehicle. This is done by very patiently massaging the dent out from the back of the panel using specialized tools.

What are the benefits of Paintless Dent Removal?

The most important benefit is we don’t repair the dent – We remove it! This method is the closest you can get to the dent never happening in the first place. No grinding, bondo, fillers, or primers are needed because your original factory paint is not disturbed. There are no problems with filler or paint shrinkage months after the repair as is typical with most body shop repairs.

Cost is also a major benefit of Paintless Dent Repair. Repairs are typically a fraction of the cost of conventional dent repair.

Time savings is yet another advantage. Many dents can be fixed in less than a day with Paintless Dent Repair. Hail repair can be done in a few days. A body shop may take 2-3 weeks for the same type of damage.

Will my paint be damaged?

No. Today’s factory paints are very flexible and will not be damaged in any way by this process. Paintless Dent Repair is the only way to repair a dent and still keep your factory paint.

Will my dents be 100% gone?

On minor dents, in most cases, yes. The larger and deeper the dent, the more difficult it is to repair. Even on larger dents, the repair will be indiscernible to most people.

Will my dents come back?

Absolutely not. Once a dent has been removed properly with Paintless Dent Repair, it never comes back.

Can any dent or ding be fixed?

No. The most important factors in determining if a dent can be repaired by Paintless Dent Repair are depth and location. Dents the size of a dinner plate or larger can be fixed successfully, as long as they are not too deep. On the other hand, some dents that are as small as a dime but very deep, cannot be fixed using Paintless Dent Repair because the metal is too stretched. Cracked paint can also be an indication that a dent is too deep.

The most common dents fixed are the size of a golf ball and under. Most (about 95%) minor dents can be repaired. About 5% of minor dents can’t be fixed due to depth or location. Areas such as some quarter panel opening lips, some forward areas of heavily braced hoods, or the very edges of some panels are examples of bad locations.

What dents or dings cannot be fixed?

There are some exceptions that can prevent the repair ability of the dent. Dent repair will work on virtually all panels of your vehicle, with some limitations:

1. If the damage is 1″ to 2″ from the edge of a door, fender, hood, quarter panel, trunk or roof, dent removal may not work 100%.

2. If there is cracked, fractured, or missing paint at the core of the damage or dent, paintless dent repair may not work 100%

3. Dent repair will not work on pillar panels, rocker panels, or plastic or metal bumpers.

Do you provide mobile service?

No.  A few company’s offer mobile service, however we are concerned about quality and use specialized lights and equipment at our shop. We are not going to work on your expensive vehicle in your driveway or a parking lot. When you have your vehicle serviced, you wouldn’t want them doing it in your driveway either!
