Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) removes dents from the body of a vehicle without having to repaint it.
Because of the strength and flexibility of the modern paints used on today’s vehicles — unless there are scratches, abrasions, or gouges — the paint can often survive an accident even when the body is damaged. Likewise, modern paints are unaffected by the process of removing the dents following an accident.
Even in cases in which the body of the vehicle appears substantially damaged, paintless dent repair can return a vehicle to near factory condition.
However, in order to take advantage of the resilience of modern paints, special tools are required to perform paintless dent repair. In addition to the right tools and expertise, PDR is specific to particular types of dents in the body of a vehicle.
Parker PDR can quickly determine whether or not paintless dent repair is an option for some or all of the dents in your vehicle following an accident.
Determining if PDR is an option
The diameter of a dent does not determine whether or not PDR is an option for dent repair. Neither does the depth of the divot in a dent play a role in whether or not PDR is an option. Paintless dent repair often works well for the repair of dents that are more than a feet in diameter. A dent with a depth of six or more inches is often repairable using PDR as well.
The two things that do determine whether PDR is appropriate are the shape of the dents, particularly at the bottom of the dent’s indention. Whether or not the dent twists the metal also plays a determining factor.
PDR is best suited for dents that are rounded off at the deepest point of the indention and dents without pinches, tears, or abrasions at the edge between the undamaged portion of the body and the dent.
How long does paintless dent repair take?
Because painting is not required, paintless dent repair is considerably faster than the reparation of dents that require a complete refurbishing. Depending on the number of dents, where they are located, and the availability of PDR technicians — in some cases — Parker PDR can have you back in your car in less than a day!
