FAQ

What is PDR?
Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is a non-invasive dent and ding repair solution for metal panels found on most automobiles today. Certified technicians use custom tools and a metal pushing technique to repair metal panels from behind the damage area. PDR does not use heat, cold, dry ice, electricity or anything else that might harm the existing paint or factory finish.

How does PDR work?
Dents are accessed from the backside of the damaged panel using specially designed tools to slowly massage the damaged panel back to its original shape and form.

What dents can or cannot be repaired with PDR?
Dents that are repairable are approximately the size of a credit card or less. Most non-collision dents can be successfully repaired with the PDR process. However, there are factors that do exist which limit the ability to repair some dents. These factors include the sharpness of the impact point, the location of the dent as compared to the reinforcement structure of the damaged panel, and the depth of the dent.

Why choose PDR over traditional methods?
There is no need for the use of body fillers or paint with the PDR process. Therefore, the vehicle retains its original factory-finish which helps the vehicle retain its value. The process is environmentally safe, quicker and considerably less expensive than traditional body shop methods. The repair is guaranteed against future defects and dent reappearance.

How long do repairs take?
Minor door dings and parking lot damage can be repaired in less than an hour, or in about the time it takes to have an oil change. Repair times vary based on the severity of the damage.
