Five Myths About Paintless Dent Repair
Whenever a new alternative comes along that makes bold claims, people tend to be skeptical. That's understandable. These are some myths people have about Paintless Dent Repair and the truth behind them.
Paintless Dent Repair Is Expensive
As a matter of fact, PDR is much less expensive and will only cost a fraction of what it would to repair the same dent (or dent) the traditional way. The dent repair process at an auto body shop entails a long list of processes and actions. While this method requires more working hours and supplies, it not only costs more, but also produces an inferior result to PDR with the added worry of paint mismatch. The process of PDR requires far fewer materials and much less time than traditional dent repair, which makes the service more affordable.
Some Say Paintless Dent Repair Will Not Fully Fix the Dent?
Many people do not believe PDR will produce the best results because it is not the traditional way of doing it. Most of our first-time customers are pleasantly surprised with the results they receive when they use PDR. Many mechanics believe it is the best method of repairing dents because it forms the body back to new and leaves no telltale swirl as in traditional dent repair. Most dents can be repaired with PDR, which is considered the best method for returning vehicles to their original state.
Does Paintless Dent Repair Does Not Work on Aluminum ?
Although aluminum is a more difficult material to work with than steel, it can still be repaired by a PDR technician with experience working with aluminum. The problem is that because aluminum has a springy consistency, it is difficult to push the dent in perfectly. Reforming metal back to its original position will require the technician to use light force for a longer period of time. A skilled PDR tech can still repair aluminum faster and cheaper than a body shop, despite the fact that it is more difficult.
Paintless Dent Repair Uses Heat and Dry Ice to Fix Dents
Body shops created this myth in order to make more money by replacing panels, cutting roofs, and filling and painting over dents instead of PDR. PDR involves applying slow and steady pressure inside the dent while rotating a metal rod. This allows the metal to be massaged into place. Body shops who fear losing business have created a myth that PDR uses heat and dry ice. However, the true PDR technique produces excellent results without increasing damage.
Paintless Dent Repair is Just a Gimmick
The idea of something new on the scene is often dismissed as yet another gimmick that won't work. It is, however, a highly skilled technique that takes years to master, with many technicians saying they learn more from their career than from their previous one. PDR claims to be cheaper, faster, and better, In fact, PDR's claim that it is better, cheaper, and faster is not an attempt to encourage people to come for unsatisfactory services, but the very fact that it is all of those things. The PDR technique takes years of learning and makes all of the claims that it makes possible
