When you have a dent in your vehicle, you want it fixed as quickly and easily as possible–and you don’t want your vehicle’s paint damaged in the process. Thanks to Paintless Dent Repair, or PDR as it’s commonly referred, you can fix up your vehicle without the old-timey hassles associated with regular dent repair.
Here’s everything you need to know about PDR, courtesy of our friends at Berglund Body Works in Roanoke, VA.
What is Paintless Dent Repair?
Paintless Dent Repair, unlike many traditional auto dent repair methods, does not involve removing any type of paint from the vehicle. Either the dent is massaged out carefully from the back, or the dent is removed using special tools from the front. In either case, no damage is made to the paint in the process.
Also, with PDR, you don’t typically need to apply new paint to the car’s body. About 95% of all PDR-fixed vehicles never need fresh exterior paint.
How is Paintless Dent Repair different from normal dent repair?
In a conventional dent repair, methods like grinding help remove the appearance of the dent from the vehicle. Unfortunately, this means removing paint along with the dent! With Paintless Dent Repair, however, the original factory paint is not disturbed, which means your vehicle will keep looking its best.
If you’ve experienced dent damage to your vehicle, Paintless Dent Repair can help it look new again. You’ll be astounded by the difference in your vehicle–and all for a reasonable, affordable price.
What types of damage can be fixed with PDR?
PDR can fix a wide variety of dents–in many cases, creating amazing results! While normal door dings, bumper bumps, and hood humps are correctable using some form of paintless dent removal, there are unfortunately some types of damage that can be difficult to fix using this method, including:
- Dents on the edges of panels
- Dents deep enough to cause paint damage
- Dents that are located on the front part of a heavily braced hood
In most other cases, giving Paintless Dent Repair a shot is often well worth the effort. Not only can PDR keep the allure of your INFINITI intact, but it can oftentimes make your car shinier when paired with a fresh detail.
How much does Paintless Dent Removal cost?
While the cost of repairing auto body damage will vary based on the size and location of the dent, Paintless Dent Repair typically costs much less than typical auto body repair services–and with far less damage to your vehicle. It’s the cost-effective way to tell those car dimples: “not today.”
