Everyone knows the frustration that comes with dents and dings. Very often, they’re not the fault of the car owner, who has to figure out a way to repair them without affecting the value of their vehicle.
Luckily, there’s a quick and cost-effective option to deal with minor damage that hasn’t chipped or cracked the paint of your car. This method is known as Paintless Dent Removal (or PDR), and comes with many interesting advantages, as you will see below.
How Does It Work?
Paintless Dent Removal consists in pushing back into shape a dent or ding in your car’s body. In order to do this, a technician gains access to the damaged area from behind, a process that may require the removal of body panels or tail lights. The expert uses specialized tools to massage the dent beginning from the outer edges until the metal returns to its original position. The final result is almost undetectable in most cases.
Since Paintless Dent Removal takes relatively little time and requires almost no material (such as body filler or paint), it can cost significantly less than other types of body work. It’s also an environmentally friendly process, because no chemicals are necessary.
Depending on the characteristics of the dents to repair, an expert can perform Paintless Dent Removal in a matter of hours, while other types of body work may take longer. However, this will depend on the extension on the damage. Hail damage, for example, may create numerous dents and dings that take longer to remove.
No Color-Matching Concerns
One of the greatest benefits of Paintless Dent Removal is that you won’t have to worry about any potential color mismatch. In fact, with PDR the original factory finish is not affected, which helps maintain your vehicle’s value.
