Paintless dent repair or PDR is the best and preferred way to fix dings, dents, and hail damage. PDR is a paintless dent removal method that restores your car to like-new factory condition for a fraction of the cost and time it takes to do traditional dent repairs. With PDR, a highly-trained technician will access the back side of the dent and using specialized tools carefully massage the dent out, restoring your vehicle to its original condition. No painting is necessary, preserving the factory finish and the value of your car.
No. Examples of dents that can’t be fixed using PDR include dents that can’t be accessed, dents on the edge of a panel, and dents where the metal has been stretched beyond repair. The location and depth of the dent are the two most important factors in determining if a dent can be repaired using PDR. Large dents can be fixed successfully, as long as they are not too deep. On the other hand, some dents that are as small as a dime but very deep cannot be fixed using PDR because the metal is too stretched. Cracked paint can also be an indication that a dent is too deep.
No. Once a dent has been properly removed by one of our paintless dent repair technicians, it will not come back. Unless you re-damage the dented area, post-repair, your dent will remain fixed. We offer a limited lifetime warranty on all our repairs for as long as you own your car.

No. One of the major advantages of the paintless dent removal process is that it does not affect the warranty on the car’s paint or finish.
Damage to your car that occurs due to “Acts of God” or natural disasters such as hail, wind, or tornados, are covered by comprehensive insurance (versus collision or liability auto insurance), which most people carry. Insurance companies prefer when car repairs can be made using PDR because paintless dent repair saves them money on paint, materials, and rental cars. Minor dents such as door dings and shopping cart dents often cost less to remove than your insurance deductible. More information on hail damage repair.
Absolutely not. Many of our PDR clients are afraid to get the hail damage on their car repaired because they think their insurance rates will sky rocket. Hail damage is covered by your comprehensive insurance (see question, above) and since no one can determine when a natural disaster, such as hail, is going to occur, insurance companies will not hold these claims against your insurance record. If you have questions about hail damage repair, call us at (518) 769-5004 .
