How Paintless Dent Repair Works

We all probably know the heartache of finding damage to your car, whether it’s a ding or from a major hail storm. The cost to get the damage repaired can be pretty expensive and time-consuming, and the last thing you want to think about is not having your car for a while. And, of course, there’s the risk of being bamboozled by a fly-by-night operation that swings through town after every major storm. What you need is paintless dent repair.

Here’s how paintless dent repair works.

Determine the Extent of the Damage

The important thing to know up front is that if your car has dents with paint damage, cracks, and the like, it’s probably not a candidate for paintless dent repair. You’re going to have to go to an auto body shop to have the body replaced, rebuilt, and repainted. If all you have are dents with no damage to the paint, we can likely work our magic!

Gain Access

You might be wondering why we would need to gain access to the exterior of your car. What we mean is to find the back side of the dent, like under the panels, hood, or trunk. In order to perform the necessary repairs, we need access to both sides of the damage.

Get to Work!

Once we know where exactly the back end of the dent is, we will get a light board to help with the following steps. The light board will be used to create shadows of each dent, and that helps us determine exactly where to apply pressure from the back end. We will then gently apply pressure in a circular motion to work the dent back to where it should be.

Repeat

If you have hail damage, you likely have dozens (or even hundreds) of little dings that need care. We will go over the surface of your entire car until each and every dent is worked out, and until your car looks like new again.

Why You’ll Love It

Have you ever gone to a body shop for repairs? They do incredible work and have a superior level of craftsmanship when it comes to fixing extensive and severe damage. However, the downside lies in the paint. Car manufacturers don’t keep an endless supply of paint on hand so you can have a perfectly matched repair job. The auto body shop will do their best to match your car, but many times, the match isn’t exact and you’ll be able to see the difference.

With paintless dent repair, because we’re only performing minor dent repair, we don’t have to apply paint. You won’t have to worry about an uneven surface, and will get back on the road fast. You’ll be flabbergasted at the difference paintless dent repair makes!
