    So you got a ding on your car door at the supermarket. That’s going to require a new paint job, and may even involve a rental for a few days, right? Not necessarily. These days, mechanics and dealerships can repair dents quickly without having to repaint the area. Paintless dent repair, or PDR for short, allows body shops to push out door dents slowly from the inside, saving the paint job but repairing the dent. Dents up to the size of a football can be repaired in this manner, but most often the technique is applied to small dents and dings. This is possible due to the increase in use of high-strength metal and resilient paint finishes. Used as an alternative to traditional auto body shop repair, paintless dent repair can reverse damage that occurs as part of everyday driving and parking. This method has several benefits. No body filler is needed with this technique, plus it typically costs less than traditional repair methods. It’s also pretty quick, too, with many such jobs taking just a couple of hours to fix. Not only does the car retain its original paint in that portion, there is virtually no chance of getting a false color match, which may happen if a traditional body shop has to repaint and detail the area. Body detailing shops that provide paintless dent repair also offer other services as well, such as interior and exterior body work, frame work, scratch removal, and window tinting. The next time you get into a fender bender and require bumper repair, consider automobile paintless dent repair. From creases and protrusions to collision damage, PDR can provide a solution to the annoying hassle of having to remove the imperfection and restore cars to their former beauty.
