What is PDR?
PDR, also known as paintless dent repair or paintless dent removal is an environmentally-friendly repair method that restores a vehicle’s body to factory-like condition in a fraction of the time at a fraction of the cost of conventional body repair. PDR can be used to remove dings and dents from vehicles, as well as creases and hail damage. Check out this informative video by Myke Toledo for PDR Nation! https://youtu.be/sRoCoZU9NLg
How is PDR performed?
Most commonly, PDR technicians use special lighting that casts a reflective shadow across the damaged area. Using the shadow for reference, these highly skilled specialists with acute hand-eye coordination gently push the damaged area from the backside of the body panel with surgical precision. Dent glue and specially designed tabs may be used to pull out the dents from the outside of the panel with a slide hammer. Fine tuning the repair often involves tapping down the repair to remove small high spots, crowns, and for blending. The process does not disturb the paint thus ensuring your factory finish and warranty remains intact.
How long does PDR take?
Most minor repairs can be performed in less than an hour. Larger dents and creases, or severe damage can take hours and hail damage up to a day or two.
How much does PDR cost?
Size is the primary factor in pricing PDR. Other factors, like the severity of the damage, what the panel is made of, body lines and multiple dents, would increase the cost of the repair. Our pricing starts at $100.
What is R & I?
R & I stands for removal and installation. Sometimes, a part, like a tail light or a trunk liner, needs to be removed in order to access the dent from behind. It is put back when the repair is finished.
