When Can You Use PDR?

Whether it’s a fender bender on the way to work or infamous Colorado Springs hail, getting a dent in your car at some point is virtually inevitable. While the damage itself is distressing enough, the repair process can often be even worse to endure. Traditional auto body repairs can take multiple days and cost hundreds or thousands of dollars, depending on the model of your car. However, with Front Range Bumper Solutions’ paintless dent repair service, dent removal can be a quick, affordable, and hassle-free process.

What Is PDR?

Paintless dent repair is a type of dent repair in which trained technicians use heat tools to massage dented panels back to their original shape without repainting. This type of repair eliminates the need for sanding, filling, and painting the area, which makes it a much cheaper and quicker option than other types of repairs. PDR often only takes one to two hours, depending on the extent of the damage.

When Can You Use PDR?

As the name suggests, paintless dent removal does not involve the use of paint. Therefore, PDR is only an option when the vehicle’s paint is still fully intact, and the metal is not too stretched from the accident. The more shallow the dent is, the more likely that PDR is possible. If no paint was damaged during the impact of your accident, your technician would very likely be able to perform PDR to repair your vehicle quickly and at little cost.

The Advantages of PDR

PDR does not require sanding, filling, or painting the vehicle. Therefore, the amount of steps needed to complete PDR in comparison to traditional dent repair is halved. This not only cuts down on time required for the repair, but it also cuts down on cost for you. Fewer billable man hours and fewer necessary materials result in a lower final bill than you would get at a traditional body shop. Additionally, since there’s no need for new paint or new panels, there’s no downtime waiting for parts, so your repairs can be completed in the same day, in just a matter of hours.

Paintless dent repair can be used to remove hail damage, minor creases, dings, and small dents without compromising the vehicle’s paint.
