Hail can wreak all kinds of damage on your property; unfortunately, vehicles are some of the most common hail damage victims. If you’re dealing with car hail damage, here are a few reasons you should rely on paintless dent repair (PDR) to get it fixed.

PDR Is More Efficient

Getting vehicle hail damage fixed can be a time-consuming process depending on the chosen repair method. Traditional repair methods often take weeks to complete, thanks to a long, step-by-step process. PDR, on the other hand, is a much more efficient way to get rid of those small dents from hail.

During a PDR session, your technician will utilize a specialized tool to slowly press your car’s dented exterior back into its original shape. This is typically done by removing a panel from the inside of your car to gain access to the interior of your vehicle’s body. Once your technician has access to the area where the dent is, they can simply pop it out. Depending on the number of dents from hail damage in your vehicle, this could take anywhere from a few hours to a day or two on average.

PDR Is More Cost-Effective

There’s no denying that auto repair is an expensive venture at times. This is especially true when you’re investing in traditional dent repair work. This type of dent repair work typically requires fillers, grinding, painting many layers, drying time and buffing as part of the workflow. When you choose paintless dent repair, there’s no need for all of those extra steps. It’s called paintless for a reason, after all. PDR doesn’t require any additional work or supplies, which makes it a much more cost-effective option for small dent repair. Less time, less labor and fewer materials mean spending less money on repairing your hail damage.

PDR Offers Better Preservation of Value

Resale value for cars is a finicky thing. As soon as you drive them off of the dealership lot, they start to depreciate. Traditional dent repair methods often require new paint, which isn’t guaranteed to match or last as long, thus reducing your car’s resale value. Fortunately, PDR techniques don’t interfere with your vehicle’s paint at all. The entire goal of PDR is to repair small dents without any damage to your car’s protective factory finish paint. In doing so, PDR can help preserve the value of your car.

Working with PDR technicians for small dent repair is your best bet after sustaining car hail damage. Not only will you likely have your car back within a day, but you’ll also save money and preserve your car’s protective paint.
