Paintless Dent Removal Paintless dent removal or PDR is a method of restoring minor damage to its predamaged condition. PDR has been used for many decades now and is the preferred repair method for dents and dings. Massaging the metal to return it to its original shape is an art that is an effective and economical option to conventional repair. Using special tools along with years of experience we can repair door dings, parking lot dents and even hail damage.
PDR is not done by using fire or dry ice as the hot and cold contraction of the metal is usually a temporary repair at best. PDR is however the art of reading the metal and repairing highs and lows on the surface by pushing and tapping with special tools developed specifically for dent removal. The hard part is knowing how hard to push and where. Too hard or in the wrong location and you can cause more damage than good. Not enough pressure and the dent is not repaired.
Performing paintless dent removal since 1996 Automotive Cosmedics has the experience to repair your vehicle. Not all dents can be repaired with PDR but most dents up to the size of a quarter with undamaged paint can be repaired flawlessly. Another limiting factor can be how stretched the metal is or how deep the dent is and how flexible the paint is so no repairs in the cold. However we have repaired many dents much larger than a quarter, creased or on the body line.
Weather you have a lease return in your future, are selling your vehicle or just want your ride looking its best then PDR may be just what you’re looking for. If your vehicles damage is accessible and the paint is not broken then PDR could be an excellent option for you.
