Fixing auto body dents and dings was once a time consuming and costly repair job, but with recent advancements in the auto body repair industry, dents and dings can be quickly removed using a process called Paintless Dent Repair (PDR). Paintless Dent Repair is perfect for small damaged areas. The repair is usually completed within an hour saving customers time and money. Though the process is quick, it is important that only trained professionals perform the repair which requires: heating the paint and metal, excising the dent from the underside of the panel, sealing against rust and buffing the existing finish to like new condition.
Paintless Dent Removal may not work for larger damaged areas, but it is the most cost-effective option for small size dents. It is a technique that is recommended by both insurance companies and car manufacturers.
Below are the main benefits of Paintless Dent Repair:
- Paintless Dent Removal saves time – The entire process usually takes less than an hour which is a stark contrast to the traditional method of using fillers, sanding and repainting which takes days leaving the customer without his/her vehicle while the repair is done.
- Paintless Dent Removal is cost-effective- Because the process is less labor intensive than traditional dent repair, the cost is significantly lower.
- Paintless Dent Removal is a better quality repair – Because the process reshapes the original panel material and preserves the original paint finish, there is no chance of filler adhesion failure or color mismatching. This ensures that the repair is of the highest quality possible.
- Paintless Dent Removal is environmentally friendly- This repair process is eco- friendly because it preserves original finish without the need for fillers or paints which produce off gases.
