HAIL DAMAGE REPAIR, TO AUTO BODY SHOP DENT REPAIR, WITHOUT PAINTING

 

With Auto Body Shop dent repair type dents, there are some cases that don’t need to be taken to an Auto Body Shop to be painted. Instead there are many times that if it has a colored marring that it may have picked up from being hit, or a scratch then it can be professionally buffed off and a Paintless Dent Removal will look nice, all the while returning your vehicle to the closest it was before being dented.

PAINTLESS DENT REPAIR BENIFITS OVER AUTO BODY DENT REPAIR

Here are  some of the benifits you could gain if you choose to have a Paintless Dent Repair done:

  • SAVES YOUR EXISTING FACTORY PAINT and by doing so also allows for a greater chance that any future dents on the same panel could be successfully removed using this same process. Something that may not be possible if you have the panel repainted because by doing so could decreases the chances of a future paintless dent repair being successful.
  • RESTORES THE VEHICLE VALUE AS CLOSE TO THE STATE AS IT WAS BEFORE BEING DAMAGED. By comparison even if considering replacing a bolt on panel with a new one you would still not have factory paint on it.
  • KEEP YOUR EXISTING COLOR MATCH AND PAINT DURABILITY, your paint remains intact and nothing needs to be applied to cover up the damage this is because the dent is removed instead.
  • AVOID OTHER  PAINT ISSUES Related To AUTO BODY SHOP PAINTING, including trapped colored dust nibs and fibers or runs, bumps, sags, bad paint texture, poor reflection or lack of luster.
  • AVOID HAVING BODY FILLER APPLIED over the dent thus needing to be painted. Doing so would prevent any future paintless dent removal from being an option as it is not recommended, do to the chance that the body filler would most likely not be flexible enough and instead crack.
  • IN MANY CASES SAVES YOU TIME AND MONEY INSTEAD OF TAKING IT TO A BODY SHOP FOR AN AUTO BODY DENT REPAIR. In most cases a door ding can be done while you wait. Compared to a standard Auto Body Dent Repair a body shop would typically want to fill the dent,  perform multiple steps to sand down and blend the neighboring panels for an acceptable color blend transition and could cost over $500.00 to cover the labor and materials, while tying the vehicle up for several days. A Paintless Dent Repair for a Door Ding would most likely be a fraction of the cost and in most cases be done on the spot while You wait.
  • HAIL DAMAGE REPAIR WITH PAINTLESS DENT REPAIR, IS FASTER THAN A CONVENTIONAL AUTO BODY REPAIR THAT COULD TAKE SEVERAL WEEKS.
  • YOU MAY NOT NEED TO MAKE AN INSURANCE CLAIM, OFTEN  A SMALL DING REPAIR WOULD COST LESS THAN IF YOU WENT THRU INSURANCE AND HAD TO PAY YOUR DEDUCTIBLE.
  • INSURANCE COULD PAY FOR PAINTLESS DENT REPAIR IF YOU HAVE TO MAKE A CLAIM.
  • INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR HAIL DAMAGE REPAIR,  HAIL DENT REMOVAL  AND OTHER TYPES OF DENTS COULD BE COVERED FOR NATURAL EVENTS IF YOU HAVE COMPREHENSIVE COVERAGE. You should review your plan with your agent to see what your deductible is and if you have coverage. If not, consider getting covered for the future because a hail damaged vehicle looks pretty ugly and it is common to cost well into the thousands of dollars for a Auto Body Dent Repair or a Hail Dent Removal Paintless Dent Repair.
  • SAVINGS ON LEASE RETURNS – Avoid being charged for returning a vehicle with dents.
  • INCREASE THE RESALE VALUE OF YOUR VEHICLE BEFORE SELLING OR TRADING IT IN.

PAINTLESS DENT REMOVAL IS BOTH AN ART AND A SCIENCE

 As Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) technicians we are proud to put a smile back on our customers faces and make them feel happy about their ride again. This dent repair service is both an art and a science.

 Paintless Dent Repair or Paintless Dent Removal are both the same process and are the trade name. The PDR  dent removal method is very hard to master. It involves training with processes that work down to the molecular level. It takes an immense amount of training, understanding the properties of different materials and how to influence them with outside factors and practice to gain the talent necessary to produce finish quality work.

 This  Paintless Dent Removal produces such results, that traditionally trained auto body dent repair Techs find hard to fathom that it is even possible for us to fix the kind of dents we do. They welcome us into their shops because it is such a tedious job for them to go over every panel with the hopes they don’t miss a single dent, because if they do it would mean redoing it and painting it again. This is hard for them because once it is sanded down they can’t see the dents so they make repairs with their skillful hands by feeling the panel.

  Counter to that a when a PDR Tech does a Hail Dent Removal or any kind of Paintless Dent Removal We use special lighting or optical reflection tools to see all the dents. We read these dents and within every single dent they are uniquely shaped with its own little terrain within it, sometimes with sort of like the inside surface of a crumpled up dish if you could imagine. 

 We work these dents out by sliding our tools in underneath, sometimes from many feet away with pinpoint accuracy and locate the exact feature that is within say a tiny dime size dent. For example if it were an actual dime we would need to push up where the eye is but also tap down where the brow is, sometimes repeatedly all the while making adjustments for the degree of elasticity of each spot to restore particular areas.

 The PDR Tech decides from training received the individual unique specific order needed to unlock the dent and restore all areas while shrinking the stretched metal. A tiny dent may require several hundred pushes and taps with fine non marring tools all in the rite spots in order to do this special paintless dent removal. So as you can see here most dents  don’t just pop out, especially on automobiles. Even in the rare occasion of a pop the dent still would not look good, that is because it would have pressure waves still locked into the metal and look like ripples in a pond from a thrown rock frozen in time. Everybody has seen this and that is what it looks like when someone tries to poke a dent out along with cracking the paint from being unqualified to remove dents. This is why it is important to choose a skillful Paintless Dent Repair Tech.

 With hail dent removal, this painstaking process is repeated for the whole panel until all dents are gone. When done the finished panel can look just like a mirror if it looked that way before.
