what is paintless dent removal


Paintless dent repair (PDR), also known as "paintless dent removal", is a collection of techniques using specalist tools to removing minor dents and dings from the body of a motor vehicle. A wide range of damage can be repaired using PDR; however, usually if there is paint damage, PDR may be unsuitable.

Paintless dent repair isn't new, and it's been popular among auto dealers and at used vehicle auctions for some time, but it seems to be catching on with consumers more as time goes on. The reason is simple... paintless dent repair (PDR) is easier on your family's budget, and usually requires less shop time than traditional dent removal methods. In most cases it can be cheaper then your insurance excess.

Using a set of specialized tools and probes, an experienced technician removes the dent or ding from the inside out. This replaces the wet sanding, hammering, spray painting, and welding used in more typical body shop operations. As you would expect, training and experience matter a lot when using PDR techniques, just as they do in all auto body repair. In fact, PDR requires even more finesse and feel, so experience counts even more.

The technician becomes familiar over time with the variations in paint thickness, body panel construction, dent location, angle, and the amount of force required to remove a dent using his tools, much like a painter or sculpter. It really is more art than science! No matter what make or model you own, Dent Correct technician are on hand to help!
