The paintless dent repair (PDR) involves removing small dents, dings, damage and creases by using a method that straightens the dents out of the damaged area, enabling the panel to appear as good as new. As the name suggests, the repair process does not require filling or painting.
The PDR is most appropriate when the car has smaller dings and panel dents where the paint has not broken. These include those resulting from small parking dings, trolley dents and stone dents. Breen Panelbeaters says professional technicians have the necessary tools and expertise to offer you this repair service in a short time.
Fast repair time
PDR repairs can be completed in an hour’s time, depending on the extent of damage. This is more convenient compared to conventional repairs that usually take a minimum of three days. Of course, DIY repairs also exist for medium-sized dents, but unless you know what you’re doing, you should keep the repairs to car experts.
Maintaining a vehicle’s value
Even if your car has a good resale value, dents and dings impact their appeal. PDR helps return the vehicle’s panel to the original factory condition without affecting its original-factory paint finish. For dealerships, PDR is a great technique for adding value to their resale vehicles.
Saves on repair costs
PDR is a relatively inexpensive procedure, considering it’s fast and does not require too much labor. Conventional repairs such as painting the car tend to be expensive because of the materials and labor used. Also, PDR does not involve sanding or body fillers, which could make purchasing the materials required a little more expensive.
Assess the extent of damage on your car before deciding to go for PDR. In some cases, you may need a different repair method to keep your vehicle looking good as new.
