How is PDR different from going to a body shop?
At a body shop the paint is removed from the surface of the damaged area on your vehicle. Then a body filler like “bondo” is applied to fill in the damage. A sander is then used to make it all smooth again, before being resprayed with primer and paint to match your vehicle. This an extensive process which takes time and $money$. With PDR there is no painting involved. We Repair the dent from the inside without disturbing the original paint. Saving you time and money.
Will my dent come back?
No. Once a dent has been repaired correctly with PDR it will not come back by itself. You would have to hit that area again in order to make another dent.
Can any dent be fixed?
We can fix dents ranging from the size of a dime up to very large damage. There are many variables that determine if a dent can be fixed using PDR, such as depth, location, and sharpness or severity. A dime size dent that is very sharp or in a bad spot may not be able to be fixed. On the other hand, a very large dent that looks really bad can sometimes be repaired because it is in just the right place.
