Paintless Dent Repair


What is Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)?

Paintless dent repair, also know as paint-free dent repair or paint-free dent removal, is a process where paintless dent repair craftsman use specialized PDR tools and graphic lighting to gently massage panels from the underside, restoring them back to pre-accident condition and strength. PDR does not utilize heat, dry ice, nor fillers to repair during the process.

Can PDR damage the finish? How does the paint keep from cracking?

PDR does not damage the finish as the techniques used are kept on the non-painted underside of the panels. Because today's lighter, thinner metals have more flexibility, the paints used in today's cars are designed to match that new flex. Think of today's auto paints as a marriage between rubber and color. It is due to this flexibility that a skilled PDR repairer has little chance of compromising the integrity of the paint during the paint less dent repair.

Are panels sometimes too severely damaged for PDR to be effective?

Why should I even bother to repair the damage to my vehicle?

If you do not repair the damage, the value of your automobile can be greatly reduced. This will cost you at trade in. If you have filed an insurance claim for your damage and have received a payment from your insurance company to repair, that panel may become an uninsurable panel in the event of future damage to the same panel.
