How Does Paintlesss Dent Removal Work?
Driving around New York City your vehicle is bound to become a victim of dings and dents; and when it does where do you turn? Who do you turn to?
Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) has been growing in popularity because more and more consumers are finding it to be an effective and inexpensive alternative to getting minor repairs done at a body shop. PDR offers more “bang for your buck” than traditional dent repair methods and is a great way to care for the condition of your vehicle’s exterior affordably.
WHAT IS PAINTLESS DENT REMOVAL
Traditional dent repair fills auto body dents in with paint or body filler, which is then matched to the rest of the vehicle’s exterior. While this process can make a vehicle look as good as new, it doesn’t address the actual dent in a way that is a sustainable, long-term solution. It’s also time-consuming, expensive and can impact the re-sale value of your vehicle.With Paintless Dent Removal, there are no fillers and there is no sanding. PDR is an environmentally friendly repair method that restores your vehicle’s body to factory-like condition in a fraction of the time at a fraction of the cost. PDR can be used to remove dings and dents from vehicles, as well as body creases and hail damage.
HOW DOES PAINTLESS DENT REMOVAL WORK: OUR STEP-BY-STEP PROCESS
Assess the Damage: The first step to any repair process is to assess the damage. Where is the dent? How big is the dent? How do we get to the dent? After assessing the damage, and determining it can be effectively removed through PDR (as 80-90% of all dents are), we prepare the area around the dent for the repair.
Gain Entry to The Dent: In most cases, PDR requires you to access the back side of the dent, which means carefully removing body panels, tail lights, or in some cases, interior panels. To perform PDR, you need a pathway to the dent.Once we have access to a dent, it’s time to perform the PDR repair. This is where the precision and expertise of our trained technicians comes into play.
Get A Better Look at the Dent: We use a special light board to give our technician a better look at the offending dent from their point-of-view. The board displays a shadow of the dent, telling us where to precisely place tools on the back end of the dent to massage the body back to its original condition.
Apply Slow Pressure to Work out the Dent: Special tools are then utilized to carefully massage the exterior back to its original position.
The PDR process can be completed with same day service, depending on a dent’s severity, and the results are amazing; even more so considering how non-invasive and quick the process really is.
