What is Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)?
What is PDR?
Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is an industry-recognized repair process that involves the removal of hail dents or other types of damage from a vehicle's exterior surface panels without disturbing the finish.
How does it work?
In most cases, this procedure involves the use of specialized tools to apply pressure to the backside of the panel to remove surface imperfections. Damage may also be repaired by bonding a "tab" or other device to the exterior of the panel and pulling the dent from the topside. By using either of these techniques, the technician is able to restore panel appearance, thus eliminating the need for refinishing the panel's surface area.
When can it be used?
The PDR process is often used to repair hail damage or other similar dents that occur when an outer panel strikes (or is struck by) an object that has not compromised the finish of the panel. Since the outer finish of the panel has not been disturbed, it eliminates steps in the refinishing process and may allow for more timely repairs.
The ability to repair vehicle using PDR requires that the technician be able to access the backside of a dent. Some repairers drill holes for access. We do not recommend PDR if drilling is necessary.
