Paintless Dent Repair vs. Regular Body Shop Repair
What is the best way to maintaining your original car paint?
Some people can live with one or two door dents or dings but for the one who can’t there are two options. First is to take your car to a body shop and have them grind, sand, Bondo and paint over the damage. Or you can go with the paintless dent repair process to fix that ding or dent in as little as 30 minutes without scarifying your original car paint. In this blog, you will learn the difference between traditional body shop repairs and the PDR repair process.
How to restore your vehicle to its factory finish
Paintless Dent Repair is a technique used to remove vehicle damages such as dents & dings, creases, and hail damage without altering the factory finish of your car. Unlike conventional body shop repairs that require fillers, bondo, chemicals, and even repainting is often necessary.

Traditional body shop techniques used to be the only choice for repairing car dents & dings and has always been expensive and time- consuming, but with the evolution of PDR techniques, the scenario has been changed drastically. PDR has proven to be a very economical solution for the repair of small dings and dents that in most cases only require less than an hour to perform.
