The benefits of paintless dent repair
Traditional dent-repair techniques are relatively slow and expensive. They work by filling in the hole a dent leaves with paint or a chemical compound and painting over it to match the surrounding paint color. The dent isn’t fixed; it’s just covered up. Paintless dent repair fixes the structure of the chassis by applying a low amount of pressure. When complete, it gives you a smooth surface that requires no extra paint or substances, which saves you time and money.
The dent-removal process
When you bring your vehicle to our shop to take advantage of our paintless dent removal, we’ll go through a careful process to fix the problem while maintaining the original condition of your paint. Our technicians will:
- Analyze your damage. Our family-owned and -operated business has seen thousands of vehicles over the years with a wide range of dents and dings. We’ll meticulously evaluate the nature of your dent and come up with an effective solution. More than 80 percent of dents can be solved with paintless removal.
- Create a pathway to the dent. In most cases, our technicians will need to get to the other side of a dent to analyze and fix the problem. That could involve removing interior panels, lights and other components to gain access. We’ll do this very carefully to avoid any further damage.
- Apply slow and steady pressure to the problem area. Our technicians use special tools that gradually apply pressure to a dent so the material returns to its original shape. The process is quick, non-invasive and environmentally-friendly.
Depending on the severity of the dent, we often can complete a full repair in just a few hours. Most of our customers are amazed at the results, especially for how inexpensive the service is. If you have any questions about the process, we’ll be happy to answer them with as much detail as possible.
