How does paintless dent repair work?
When you visit the Knudtsen Body Shop for paintless dent removal in Rathdrum, we’ll take a close look at the damage and decide whether we can use paintless dent removal to repair it. Once we’ve determined that paintless dent removal is an option, we’ll develop a plan for the best way to fix it. Next, we’ll prepare the area around the dent and access the place that’s been damaged. We’ll decide where to place our tools; then we’ll apply light pressure to the dent to repair it.
How fast is the paintless dent removal process?
One of the advantages of paintless dent repair is how quickly it can be done. In most cases, we can repair the dent the same day. Some jobs will take longer, depending on the dent's size and location, and whether there’s more than one area that must be repaired. If there’s damage from hail, it will take longer than other types of dents.
What’s the difference between paintless dent repair and conventional dent repair?
While the results of these dent repair methods may look the same, paintless dent repair and conventional dent repair are very different procedures. When a shop uses conventional dent repair, the technician fills the dent with a body filler compound. After it dries, they sand it and paint it to match the car’s factory paint job. Conventional dent repair usually looks good, but it’s slow and expensive. Repairing your car using conventional dent repair can hurt the vehicle’s resale value. Paintless dent repair doesn’t use filler, and there’s no sanding or painting involved. It will save you money and it yields great results.
