Paintless Dent Repair
Most hail and minor dents are repaired through a process known as Paintless Dent Repair (PDR).
Paintless Dent Repair is a specialized technique that returns a car to its pre-hail condition while preserving factory paint and panels.
Because PDR is the least invasive and fastest repair method for hail damage, it is the preferred method by auto manufacturers and should be the first technique utilized before defaulting to traditional repair methods.
What is Paintless Dent Repair?
Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is an innovative process for repairing minor dents, dings, and hail damage that is less invasive and faster than conventional auto body repair shops. When performed by a professional and experienced PDR technician, all of this is done without disturbing your car’s original manufacturer paint warranty.
Our highly trained professionals use specialized tools to gently massage the dents and dings out from the back of the vehicles panels, restoring the damaged panel to its original shape, never disturbing the outer finish of the panel. No sanding, priming or painting is necessary with PDR.
In most cases, there is no evidence the dent ever existed.
Benefits of Paintless Dent Repair
Preserve the value of your car
When it comes time to sell your vehicle, your car will keep its pre-damaged value when repaired using the PDR method. Also PDR, when performed correctly, will retain its original manufacturer paint warranty.
Maintain your car’s original appearance
The PDR process does not use paint, so there is no worry about matching the paint color or texture.
Get better results than conventional body work at a fraction of the cost.
Minor door dents and dings can usually be repaired in just a few hours. Auto hail damage can be repaired within one to two days, as compared to the conventional auto body shop work time of one to three weeks.
Protect the environment
Because PDR does not use any paints or fillers, no hazardous chemicals are released into the environment.
Is Paintless Dent Repair a new dent removal technique?
Not at all. PDR has been in practice in auto factories around the world for over 40 years, and the general public has enjoyed the benefits of PDR since the late 1980s. The thin gauged metal and flexible polyurethane paint of today’s cars makes the PDR process an ideal solution for fixing minor dents, dings and hail damage.
How much does Paintless Dent Repair cost?
It depends on how much damage you have, the location of the damage, and the size and depth of the dents and dings. With a full auto hail damage repair, most auto insurance companies will cover the damages 100%, outside of the deductible. SolutionWorks’ PDR makes it easy to get your damage assessed.
