Paintless dent repair (PDR) is a technique used to remove dents from a vehicle without affecting the original paint finish. However, there are some common misconceptions that people have about PDR. At Results PDR, we hear some of these all the time whenever people get referred to us. That’s okay! As experts in paintless dent repair, we’re here to clear up those misconceptions and show you why and how PDR can help you out when you get dings or dents on your car.
PDR only works on small dents
While PDR is most commonly used for small dents caused by hail or door dings, it can also be used to repair larger dents caused by collisions. However, the size, location, and depth of the dent will determine whether PDR is a suitable repair option.
PDR isn’t as effective as traditional repair methods
PDR can be just as effective as traditional repair methods, and in some cases, even more effective. PDR is a quick and cost-effective way to repair minor dents without the need for extensive bodywork and painting.
PDR will damage the paint
This is a huge worry for people who are used to traditional paint work. PDR is a non-invasive repair method that does not require sanding or painting. Therefore, when performed correctly by a team like yours truly, it will not damage the paint. In fact, PDR can help preserve the original factory paint finish! This maintains the value of your car and gives you peace of mind.
PDR is only for new cars
PDR can be used on vehicles of any age or make, as long as the paint is in good condition. It is a popular repair method for leased vehicles, as it can help avoid costly penalties for excess wear and tear.
PDR is not permanent
Say it with us: PDR is a permanent repair method. Once the dent has been removed, it will not return unless there is further damage to the vehicle.
Now, just because we’ve outlined these common misconceptions, we have to be clear. PDR won’t always work for every single type of car damage. Traditional methods may be required. That’s why it’s important to have a team like Results PDR at the ready. We’ll be able to give you an idea of what damage we can fix and when to go to another body shop for more significant damage. At Results PDR, we’ll always be upfront about the damage, as well as the steps we’ll take to get your car back to new. Give us a call at 469-423-5665 or schedule an appointment with our team now.
