Many people associate vehicle hail damage with time-consuming and expensive repairs, but that doesn’t have to be the case. If no paint damage is present, then paintless dent repair is the top choice for car hail damage. In fact, 80% to 90% of dents from hail can be repaired using paintless dent repair methods. This modern technique of hail dent removal can provide a number of advantages. Here are the four top benefits of using paintless dent repair for vehicle hail damage.
Quick Repair Times
Traditional car dent repairs using conventional repair methods involve a multi-step, labor-intensive and time-consuming process to fix hail damage. It could take weeks or even months to get your car back from the shop, depending on the extent of the damage. These traditional repairs rely on fillers to pack into the dents, then painting over the materials to give the appearance of a repair, a method that ends up on Carfax reports for a significant loss in vehicle value.
However, the techniques used with paintless dent repair reduce the repair time significantly. Individual dents can be repaired in a few hours, while hail damage may require a day or more depending on the extent of the damage. When you work with a paintless dent repair expert, you can take your car in and often get it back in the same day or the day after, much faster than conventional repairs.
At times, auto body shops may suggest expensive replacement panels after vehicle hail damage occurs, but PDR is a much more cost-effective option if there’s no paint damage present. Paintless dent repair can restore your vehicle to its original condition without harming its valuable factory finish paint or reducing its value by smoothing out the dented panels. Your vehicle’s panels will be restored to its pre-hail damaged condition without a detrimental incident report on Carfax. Most importantly, PDR methods for vehicle hail damage repairs will maintain your car’s resale value.
Safe for the Environment
Chemicals from vehicle paints can release toxic air pollutants that are harmful to the environment. Paintless dent repair uses specialized, reusable tools to fix auto hail damage without removing, damaging or adding paint. Unlike traditional repair methods, there is no waste produced during the process. In traditional repairs, both base layers and final coats of paint need to be added to the filled-in dent, and unfortunately, the top layer of paint can be a mismatch, or fade, bubble or warp over time. There’s no guarantee that the repainted section will completely match the rest of your vehicle and not become obvious over time. Paintless dent repairs are safer for the environment and the wiser choice for repairing hail damage and protecting your investment in your car.
Permanent Dent Repair Solution
Paintless dent repair is a permanent solution for hail damage, since the process slowly massages the dented panel back into its original shape. This repair method is proven to have a lifetime guarantee, and the car dents and dings won’t come back again later on. This process can be used for dents of any size, shape or location on your vehicle. You can have peace of mind knowing that your car won’t have to return to the shop for future repairs.
