Paintless Dent Repair (PDR), is a method of removing dents, dings, creases, and hail damage from your vehicle without grinding, painting, or fillers. This is done by very delicately massaging the dent out from the back of the panel, or sometimes from the front using specialized tools.
The most important benefit is quality. This method is the closest you can get to the dent never happening in the first place. No grinding, body fillers, or primers are needed because your original factory paint is not disturbed.
No. Today’s factory paints are very flexible and will not be damaged in any way by this process. However, an unskilled technician can easily crack the paint.
On minor dents, in most cases, yes. The deeper the dent, the more difficult it is to repair. Even on larger dents, once we’re done, most people are amazed at the results. We always explain in detail how your dent will likely look before any work is started.
Absolutely not. Once a dent has been removed properly with Paintless Dent Repair, it is gone for good.
No. The most important factors in determining if a dent can be repaired by Paintless Dent Repair are depth, location, and accessibility. Dents the size of a dinner plate or larger can be fixed successfully, as long as they are not too deep, or distorted. On the other hand, some dents that are as small as a dime, but very deep, cannot be fixed using Paintless Dent Repair because the metal is too stretched. The most common dents fixed are the size of a golf ball and under.
Yes. Body line dents are no problem.
Yes. Aluminum panels are stiffer and more difficult to repair, but can still be straightened.
It has become common practice by many Paintless Dent Repair technicians to drill or punch holes in places like door frames, quarter panel jambs, inner wheelhouse panels, etc. to gain access to a dent with their tools. Most of the time, the customer is not even informed of this. MI Dent Guy, LLC will always take the extra time to try and repair a dent without drilling. In the event that there is no other way to repair a dent except to drill a small hole, or if it is less expensive to drill a small hole, you will always be advised of this and the choice will be yours. If a small hole is necessary, it will be rust-proofed and plugged.
