Traditional vs. Paintless Dent Removal and Repair (PDR)
Once you start driving, you’ll automatically become susceptible to dents, scratches, chips and other types of damage that affect your vehicle’s exterior. Whether you’re a first-time driver or an experienced driver, there’s no way to avoid such problems. You can try to be more careful, but it usually doesn’t work. If you accidentally hit your garage door, another vehicle while parking, or off trail and hit a tree, your vehicle will have dents. It’s something no one wants to experience, especially if you just recently got something in your vehicle repaired. But, there’s no need to lose hope.
Who we are
We’re a team of highly trained professionals who provide our clients with auto body services for their vehicles. In our work, we use modern technology to give our clients the best service in the area. For any auto body issues you might have, just call us.
We’re all accustomed to the normal way of dent repair, which takes forever to complete. This is because your mechanics will explain that the amount of equipment needed is quite extensive. After the panel beating of the car, sanding is done in preparation for the painting, which is a whole other process.
We, on the other hand, offer you a timely, less expensive yet just as effective method known as paintless dent removal. This method doesn’t involve the use of fillers and sanding. It’s environmentally-friendly and it isn’t just effective for dents, but also works well in eliminating dings, body creases, and hail damage.
All about PDR
Just as the name suggests, paintless dent removal doesn’t use paint. It’s a technique used for removing minor dents from the vehicle body and can be quite flawless when it comes to shallower dents. This process is carried out step by step, which we explain below:
Just like with any diagnosis, the first step is to assess the damage. In order for us to do this, we locate where the dent is, assess its size and prepare the vehicle for the repair.
When conducting the PDR, we find the path leading to the dent, in other words – the other side of the dent. Here, depending on the dent location, we remove body panels, the tail lights, or even interior panels, if needed.
For PDR, special tools, such as the specialist lighting, are used. These tools are used to get a closer look at the dent, which is essential in restoring your vehicle to its pre-dent condition.
Our final process is where the real work lies. For our auto dent removal process to be complete, we apply pressure slowly to the underside of the dent. Using our special tools, we simply push the dent back in place. Contact Dallas Auto Paint today to get that brand-new look for your car.
