Paintless Dent Repair

What is Paintless Dent Repair?

Paintless Dent Repair, also known as PDR, is the revolutionary process of repairing small dents, door dings, creases, and hail damage on vehicles without the inconvenience and expense of traditional body shop repair methods.

So how do we achieve such incredible results without replacing parts? The repair process consists of gently massaging car dents and hail damage out of a vehicle‘s body from behind the affected panel using a variety of tools and techniques. The result is a pristine, dent-free panel that has been restored back to its factory finish. Without the use of harsh chemicals and fillers, paintless dent removal is kind to the enviornment and your wallet, while maintaining the original value of your vehicle.

High quality paintless dent repair requires extensive training and experience to ensure the proper techniques are used for dent removal, as each dent is completely unique. The quality of the repair directly corresponds to the experience of the technician, which is why all of our technicians have many years of experience. You can be confident that you will be happy with the results, and all of our repairs are backed by our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.

Paintless Dent Repair Frequently Asked Questions

The paintless dent repair process consists of gently massaging car dents and hail damage out of a vehicle's body from behind the affected panel using a variety of tools and techniques. Two of the most common techniques used are referred to as tooling and knock downs. Tooling involved manipulating a metal rod of various lengths, thicknesses and curvatures to appropriately reach the dent and massage it from behind. Knock downs are used when a dent protrudes towards the outside of the vehicle's surface or to re-create body lines and involves utilizing a plastic tool and hammer to carefully mold the metal back to it's original position. The result is a pristine, dent-free panel that has been restored back to its factory finish.
