Frequent Concerns Regarding Paintless Dent Repair

Paintless dent repair is steadily growing in popularity. While many are familiar with the traditional, arduous process of dent removal that involves repainting and hours of work, there is often a better way. In layman’s terms, paintless dent repair is a process that removes dents without impacting your paint, eliminating the need for costly repainting and difficult matching of your paint. Even if you have been educated on the wonders of paintless dent repair, you may still have concerns. Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about paintless dent repair.

Is Any and Every Dent a Good Candidate for Paintless Dent Repair?

As is the case with most things, paintless dent repair is not a one size fits all solution. Unfortunately, not every dent will be able to be repaired with this method. It largely depends on the accessibility of the dent’s location as to whether the tech can reach and remove the dent with the necessary tools. If the dent can’t be accessed, it will need to be fixed with traditional body work.

Can I Trust the Longevity of the Repair?

Many people question if this technique will it be a long-term solution, since it involves such a simple process. Thankfully, this repair process is highly effective, and you should not see the dent return after it has been removed.

Will I Still Be Able to Identify the Location of the Damage After It Has Been Repaired?

While this is an understandable concern, you need not worry. Provided the technician knows what he or she is doing, once the dent has been removed you will not be able to identify where the damage occurred. The goal of paintless dent repair is to make your car look brand new! Typically, even those trained in body work will have trouble identifying where a dent has been removed using paintless dent repair. The one exception is large dents. They are not always the best candidates for this process as they may be able to be faintly identified after removal.

How Long Will I Be Without My Vehicle in Order to Have My Dent Removed?

This question is slightly more difficult to answer as each dent is unique. Generally, multiple factors will influence the length of time it takes to complete the dent removal. Consider how large the dent is, how severe the damage is, and the location of the damage. As a rule, small, insignificant dents may be repaired in as little as one hour or less. Other dents may take longer to repair, up to a few hours. Regardless, paintless dent repair saves you hours and even days of time as compared to the process of dent removal via traditional body work.

Will My Vehicle Sustain Damage During the Repair Process of Paintless Dent Repair?

There is never a 100% guarantee that your vehicle could not be damaged when undergoing any repair process; however, it is very unlikely your vehicle will be damaged while being repaired using the techniques of paintless dent repair. Your vehicle is at a much higher risk for damage undergoing traditional body work.

Armed with this information, you may be surprised to realize paintless dent repair could be the perfect option for a pesky dent in your car! Call the professionals today to discover if this quick, easy process could save you time and money!
