Common Questions about Paintless Dent Repair
If you haven’t heard of paintless dent repair, it’s a special technique that uses specific tools to massage dents out of your vehicle without damaging the paint, so there’s no need to repaint or use other chemicals. If you have heard about paintless dent repair but still have questions, you’re in the right place. Below you will find some of the most common questions about paintless dent repair and their answers.
Can any dent be fixed with PDR?
Unfortunately not. To repair the dent, a technician needs to be able to access the dent from underneath with the special tools. If they can’t reach the dent this way, they won’t be able to repair it. In this case, you would need to find another dent repair service to use.
Will a dent ever return after it has been repaired?
No. Once the dent has been properly repaired, it will be gone for good. They only way for the dent to return is if you damage the vehicle in the same spot again.
Will the spot of the repair be noticeable?
If a minor dent is removed correctly, you will not be able to notice where the dent ever existed. The area will look brand new again. Even people with experience spotting repairs can’t see it when you use PDR techniques. However, some larger dents may be faintly visible.
Will the same PDR service fix the paint damage as well?
Unless you choose a service that offers multiple repair services, most PDR services only focus on dent repair. You would need to find a different service to repair any paint damage you have. Your dent repair technician should be able to recommend a good paint repair service in the area.
How long will it take to repair the dent?
The time frame depends on many factors including the size and severity of the dent as well as where it’s located. A minor dent can usually be repaired in under an hour. However, some may take a couple of hours to completely repair. This is still much less time than it would take in a body shop.
Will there by any damage to the vehicle during the repair?
While there is always a chance that your vehicle could sustain damage during the repair process, it is highly unlikely, especially with PDR. It’s much more likely that your vehicle would be damaged in a body shop than with paintless dent repair techniques.
These are just some of the common questions people have about paintless dent repair. Hopefully you found the answers to any questions you had. If you didn’t, you can always call a paintless dent repair service and ask them. Most are more then happy to answer any questions you may have about their service or the repair process in general.
