How does paintless dent repair work?
What about dents? Surely they can’t be removed so easily? While this obviously depends on the severity of the dent, repairs can be done very effectively by using paintless dent repair (PDR).
PDR might be described as a gentler, smaller-scale version of the kind of auto body work that gets done on a car after a major collision. It is a method of reshaping the panel from the inside, without any need to fill or cover the damage with paint. We use specialized tools and procedures to press and massage the panel back to its original shape from behind the dent.
PDR is quicker and less expensive than other dent repair methods. Even more, it actually removes the dent and restores the metal back to its original shape. It is the best method to use on small dents resulting from causes such as hail damage or shopping carts in the supermarket parking lot. It is an expert procedure that involves a skilled technician using specialized tools. PDR is an established, effective repair technique that is approved by all leading car manufacturers.
Is it possible to fix any dent?
PDR can remove between 80 and 90 percent of dents. The two main factors that determine whether a dent can be repaired through this method are the level of damage to the paintwork and the complexity of the dent. A small simple dent without creases in the metal and with the paint still intact can be fixed with PDR. If the dent is not too severe, but there is damage to the paintwork, PDR can be used to restore the panel to its normal shape and the paintwork can then be touched up using scratch repair methods. Deeper and more complex dents with harsh creases will probably have to undergo heavy-duty auto body repair.
