The PDR process is done through careful manipulation of the sheetmetal from the backside with special tools. This is possible today because of thinner sheetmetal and high flexibilty of urethane based paints. Highly skilled technicians can reach almost any part of the vehicle including hoods, roofs and door panels. The dent is then “massaged” back to its original position without damaging the finish. Most dents can be repaired that are caused by door dings, hail, golf balls and shopping carts, from the size of coins to many inches wide.
PDR is otherwise known as paintless dent repair. This is a process used by technicians to remove small dents from the vehicle without having to use paint or bondo on the vehicle. The technicians apply pressure and leverage to the backside of the panel and massage or work the dents out keeping the very valuable factory paint intact. There is no sanding, or body fillers or painting involved.
Pricing varies depending on the severity of the area in need of repair. Dent repair starts at $99. In fact, most repairs are lower than your deductible, eliminating an insurance claim!
