What is Paintless Dent Repair? (And Why We’re the Dent Experts.)

By April 27, 2015Hail Repair, Services

 

Door dings, dents and hail damage happen to all of us, and Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is the process we take to quickly repair these.

 A simplistic description of PDR is, “The use of a series of different sized and length metal rods with varying degrees of bends and tip shapes to access the inside/back side of automobile body panels and applying pressure on the back side of the dented area, pushing the dent out.”

Our PDR process is the Simplest, Greenest, Cleanest and most Affordable repair in the auto body repair industry. Here’s a “quick” look into a PDR repair to a section of hail damage at our Clayton shop. It’s “quick” because we took almost 20 minutes of footage and sped it up to 3 minutes.

 

What is PDR?

 

Types of Dents in Paintless Dent Repair

  • Door Dings are the most common kind of damage that can be repaired with our process in a short amount of time.
  • Larger dents are also repairable, provided that the damaged area is not stretched beyond the limits of repair and that their location is accessible.
  • Creases are also in our repertoire of case damages that are challenging and rewarding when perfection is achieved.
  • Hail Damage is menacing to automobiles in the midwest and we have perfected the process of removing all those little dings that may seem irreparable.

WE CAN FIX most dents within the limits of reason and save you time, money and your original factory finish.

 

Choosing a PDR Company

Choosing a reputable company with technicians that are skilled in PDR and automotive assemblage is very important.  This is a professional service, so choose a company with the great regard to integrity; a bad technician can make the affected area worse; it’s not worth any amount of savings or possible loss of paint warranty on your vehicle.

 

Questions to ask a PDR Company

  • How long have they been in business?
  • Do they have any real referrals? Google, Bing, YAHOO, etc.
  • Are they Members of the Better Business Bureau?
  • Do they have Garage Liability Insurance?
  • Do they have any relationships with Insurance Companies?
  • Do they have any Dealership or Body Shop Relationships?
  • Do they have a physical retail location and not just a mobile service (Very Important?)
  • Does the technician represent them self and the industry professionally?
  • Does the Company have a written Guarantee or Warranty?
  • Pay attention to the tools they are about to use on your vehicle “A dirty gym bag full of rusty tools is typical” and Not Recommended!

Our professional-grade tools are top-of-the-line, very clean — and, yes, colorful.
