Paintless Dent Repair -PDR
The Leader In PDR Since 1991
Paintless Dent Repair is the standard for most types of dent removal and auto hail repair. With PDR, dent removal is done without the need for paint or body panel replacement.
At Dent Poppers, we use Paintless Dent Repair almost exclusively and have been repairing dents since 1991. Our PDR Service comes with a Lifetime Warranty.
How does Paintless Dent Repair work?
Our PDR technicians gently manipulate each dent back to their original position. This is achieved with tools designed specifically for paintless dent repair. The metal is returned to factory standards.
Advantages of PDR
- The vehicle’s paint stays original.
- No aftermarket parts
- Most popular for dent repair
Paint stays original with PDR
Factory paint is bonded to the underlying metal electronically and it is very durable. Our gentile PDR procedure allows us to push or pull a dent back into place without disturbing the paint. Painting or touch-up of the repaired dent is not necessary.
No aftermarket parts
Paintless Dent Repair removes dents on the vehicle without requiring aftermarket body panels. The vehicle stays original just as it was from the factory. For this reason, PDR is more precise than other methods of dent repair.
Once the vehicle gets to our shop, we can start the dent repair immediately. We do not need to prep the vehicle, wait on parts to arrive or the paint to dry. In many cases we can remove a small dent in an hour or two depending where it is located. Auto hail repair can take several days to a week.
Paintles Dent Repair is Cost-Efficient
Dent repair with PDR is usually less expensive than other methods, such as from a body shop. Since PDR works directly on the vehicle, there are no extra expenses such as parts, prep and paint.
PDR is the most popular way to repair dents.
Not only is paintless dent repair recognized as the best way to remove dents and hail damage. PDR is trusted and used by:
- Car dealerships
- Rental car companies
- Fleet vehicles
- Personal vehicles
Of course, not all dents can be repaired with PDR.
Does PDR work on all dents?
As remarkable as paintless dent repair is, not all dents are candidates for it. The two main types are:
- Paint damage – If the dent caused the paint to chip then PDR alone cannot repair it. In this case, the area will need to be touched up with paint.
- Creases and scratches – In many cases, hard creases and deep scratches cannot be repaired with PDR. The damaged body panel will need to be replaced.
