Even the smallest dent in your vehicle’s body can ruin its appearance and lower its resale value. Unfortunately, unless you leave your car wrapped in a protective bubble and never drive it, you can’t 100% prevent dents. Auto collisions, hail and other inclement weather, and random objects can cause all kinds of auto damage, including minor and major dents.
Paintless dent repair (PDR) is an economical way to restore your vehicle’s body to factory-like condition in a fraction of the time at a fraction of the cost. Most car dent removal, which involves filling in dents with body fillers or paints isn’t as long-lasting. Paintless dent repair, on the other hand, offers a much more sustainable and long-term approach to dent removal. Experts say that between 80% and 90% of dents can be repaired using PDR techniques.
Here are three main types of dents that can be effectively removed by paintless dent removal:
- Round Dents — These types of dents are often cased from hailstones and other round objects like footballs, basketballs, baseballs, etc. When these objects hit the door, bumper, roof, or hood, a rounded dent immediately forms.
- Car Dings — These types of dents are extremely common because they can be caused by small objects. Thankfully, these are typically the easiest to repair but if any damage to the auto body has occurred, PDR services can still improve the look and remove the dents.
- Crease Dents — These dents typically bend and tear the vehicle’s metal. Whenever a vehicle has acquired a dent, you need to act quickly because it could lose its metal memory, making it hard to repair back to its original shape.
All of these dents can vary in size and can significantly worsen over time. Make sure you are working with professionals and are getting your car serviced right away after any kind of damage.
