It’s often a common misconception that paintless dent removal isn’t for everyone. That is simply not true. While PDR was invented well over 60 years ago, it only recently became a mainstream repair on dented vehicles when insurances recognized it as an effective repair for hail damage. However Paintless Dent Repair is not just for hail damage. PDR can be used for more than just hail damage. This blog will explain what Dents PDR techs are able to repair.
Here at DentTime we service most of San Diego County and we can come to your home or office with most repairs taking only 2-3 hours.
When will PDR NOT work?
Regardless of the year your vehicle was made PDR will always be a viable option for paintless dent repair. The only time PDR is not an option is when;
- The metal has been stretched too far out and the dent has sharp edges or torn metal.
- The paint on your vehicle is scratched or cracked
- The dent is located and situated too close to the edge of the panel
These factors eliminate dent repair as an option and would require you to go to a full auto body shop for repair.
