Some Info About Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)
Whether it’s from hail damage or pulling out of the driveway, when your car suffers a minor ding or dent, you will likely want to get it repaired as quickly and cost-effectively as possible at an auto body shop near you—without sacrificing the look or value of your vehicle. For minor damage like this, paintless dent repair can be a fast & frugal option.
WHAT IS PAINTLESS DENT REPAIR?
Paintless dent repair (PDR) is a method for fixing minor dents that uses slow pressure and does not require paint which can add significant additional expense to a repair. Technicians access the dent from the backside by removing any interior panels to access the damaged panel, then use metal rods and body pricks to pop the dent back out—without ruining the factory-finish paint job. Occasionally, deep dents may require several rounds of this process. This technique can be used for minor dents, hail damage, or even larger dents as long as the paint hasn't cracked.
Sharp dents or dents that have cracked the vehicle’s paint may require the more traditional method of dent repair using fillers and paint. This method takes longer and will be more expensive.
