What is paintless dent repair?
PDR is a technique of removing dents, dings and damage caused by hail on the body of the vehicle. This technique differs from traditional dent repair in that it doesn’t require any filling, sanding, or repainting of the vehicle’s factory finish. Paintless Dent Repair is carried out using special tools that gently push the dent out of the surface without disturbing the paint.
Why should I use Paintless Dent Repair as opposed to the other techniques?
There are many advantages to using PDR to repair your vehicle. Paintless dent repair provides high-quality repairs that maintain the original factory finish of your vehicle even after the repair. PDR works so well because it avoids some of the common issues that happen with conventional dent repair techniques that use grinding, bondo, fillers, and primers that can result in paint matching, paint shrinkage, or other unwanted effects later after the repair is done. In addition to that, paintless dent repair does not use chemicals during the repair process, which means the process is ecofriendly. Repairs are cheap and can cost 1/4 – 1/3 less than conventional auto body repair methods and can be finished in less than an hour in some instances.
