Door dings and dents are annoying, to say the least. Thankfully, you don’t have to live with them. Repairing these problems is easy and inexpensive. At the Knudtsen Abra Body Shop, we can repair many dents using a paintless dent removal (PDR) process to get your car looking new again. Best of all, paintless dent removal is less expensive than traditional dent removal methods. PDR can remove a variety of dents and dings, including body creases and hail damage. If you live in Liberty Lake, paintless dent removal is nearby when you take your vehicle to the Knudtsen Abra Body Shop in Post Falls.
How does paintless dent repair work?
When you visit the Knudtsen Abra Body Shop for Liberty Lake PDR, we’ll examine your vehicle and carefully inspect the damaged area. We’ll determine the best way to reach the dent and apply mild pressure to fix the damage. Your car’s body will be restored to its previous condition.
These are the different steps involved in PDR:
Evaluate the Damage: We’ll determine the size and location of the dent and decide the best way to get to it. After we know we can remove the dent with PDR, we prepare the surrounding area.
Gain Entry: We’ll usually need to get to the back of the dent. Depending on the dent’s location, we may have to remove the taillights or body panels. In some cases, we may need to remove interior panels.
Inspect the Dent Carefully: We’ll calculate the best location to place our tools to get behind the dent.
Apply Mild Pressure to the Dent: We’ll gently move the dented body part back to its proper position.
How long does paintless dent removal take?
PDR is a fast process. In many cases, it can be done the same day you bring in your vehicle. The turnaround time depends on the size of the dent, its location, and the severity of the damage. If there are multiple dents, dings or creases, it will probably take more than a day. Hail damage typically takes longer to repair.
What’s the difference between paintless dent removal and traditional dent repair? With traditional dent repair, a technician fills in the dent with body filler. Then the filler is sanded and painted to match the original exterior paint. The results are usually good, but traditional dent repair costs more than PDR. It’s also slower, and it can lower your car’s resale value. In contrast, PDR doesn’t use filler, and there’s no painting or sanding. It saves you money and produces beautiful results.
