Repairing Dents Using PDR:
PDR (Paintless Dent Repair) is a
technique used to repair minor dents and dings on cars and other vehicles (including
motorcycles, RVs, and boats) without repainting the
vehicle. Dents are gradually removed by applying
pressure from the back side of the dent using special
tools and techniques. Not all dents qualify for
Paintless Dent Repair. If the paint is cracked or
scratched, your dent is not a good candidate for PDR.

WHY USE PDR?
There are many advantages to
1) PDR is less expensive than
traditional body shop repairs (often 50-70% less).
2) PDR preserves your original
paint. No risk of your paint peeling or fading over
3) PDR is faster than auto body
shop repairs, often taking less than two hours to
4) PDR is more convenient for
you, since the dent repair tech comes to your home or
office. You won't need a rental car and you won't have
to wait days to get your car back from the shop.

HOW DOES PDR WORK?
The dent repair technician will
access your dent in one of several ways: If the dent is
on or near your fender it may be possible to access it
from the wheel well. If the dent is on your door the
repair technician will use one of many specialized tools
that allow him to safely gain access by sliding the tool
past the window (great care is taken not to scratch your
window). In rare instances, it may be necessary to drill
access holes to reach the dent. This is not recommended
and we would not attempt it without consulting with you
Once the repair tech gains
access to the dent, he will gradually "massage" the dent
back to its original condition (or as close to original
condition as possible). The technician will inform you
before starting to work how close to original condition
he can get. The Paintless Dent Repair process requires
extensive experience and great skill. It may take
anywhere from a few minutes to several hours to repair
the dent or ding, depending on the size, location, and
severity of the dent.
