Traditional body shop repair methods versus (PDR) or "paintless dent removal" ?

  • Traditional methods of repair are unlimited in the ability to repair any dents, scrapes, rips, fading paint or plastic bumper damage.

    Paintless dent repair (PDR), also known as “paintless dent removal”,  utilizes metal rods and body picks to push the dents out from the inner side of the body panel being repaired. A wide range of damage can be repaired using PDR; however, usually if there is deep creases or no access, behind panel or the paint is damaged, (PDR) may be unsuitable.

When to choose (PDR) over Traditional body shop methods?

  • The advantage of traditional body shop methods of repair are unlimited in the ability to repair any dents, scrapes, fading paint, or plastic bumper damage where PDR is limited.

    (PDR) is limited in the fact that it can only be performed in specific circumstances when damaged paint is not involved or tools are unable to access the damaged panel.

    The advantage of PDR would be in specific circumstance when multiple dings without paint damage are spread through out your vehicle (without damaged paint) eliminating having to refinish multiple panels which would could make it more cost effective and preserve your paints original finish.

When is it better to replace a body part than repair it?

  • It is better to replace a body part when the damage exceeds the labor cost to repair or when quality would be compromised. This is determined on a case by case basis.

Should I use my insurance or not?

  • There are times when utililizing your insurance could be more cost effective in cases when the damage greatly exceeds your deductible. Although in many cases, your insurance can cost more with a claim. Measuring the difference between a higher premium and cost out of pocket should be analyzed to determine the best route to go.

    In many cases the cost of a repair is under deductible costs and it makes sense to not go through insurance.

What about my lease turn in?

  • When turning in a lease it is common for the lease company to assess any damage at turn in that is not normal wear and tear and could bill you for the repairs. By repairing the vehicle prior to turn in you have the advantage of controlling the cost of the repair as opposed to the lease company dictating the cost. Most repairs completed prior to lease turn in are less than lease company rates which fall in line with body shop pricing.

What is 2 stage paint?

  • There are basically two main types of paint: Single stage and 2-stage. Single stage paints have the glossy clear actually mixed into the paint and can be applied with “color and gloss”, if you will, in one stage. Single stage paints include “Acrylic Enamel (most common), Acrylic Lacquer, and Synthetic Enamel”. These types of paint were most commonly used in automotive purposes up until the early ’80’s until the release of two stage paints.

    Two stage paints are commonly referred to as “base-coat / clear coat”. Naturally, your first-stage is to spray a flat color coat, then spray a Urethane clear gloss on as the second stage for better gloss and UV protection.

    3-stage paint would include a pearl mid-coat applied between the basecoat and the clear coat.

    Two-stage paints give you more control on how “glossy” your finish is and are a bit more durable than standard single stage.
