Dent Removal FAQs

Q. What is Paintless Dent Repair?

A. Paintless Dent Repair removes damage from door dings and hail without the use of traditional auto body methods including grinding, bondo and painting.  This is the only way to remove hail damage and door dings and still preserve the factory finish.

Q. What are the benefits of Paintless Dent Repair?

A. Most repairs are done in 30-60 minutes, not days like traditional body shops. This saves you time. Paintless Dent Repair also saves you money. Generally this technique is less expensive than traditional body repair. Paintless dent repair preserves your vehicle's original factory finish. According to industry experts, newer vehicles can depreciate 20 - 30% when repaired and painted. Paintless dent repair will maintain your vehicle's value.

Q. Does this method damage my paint?

A. Absolutely not. Because today's Urethane paints and superior base coats, typical hail stones and door dings do not damage the paint. Our method repairs the damaged body panel from the back side. The painted surface is not damaged in any way.

Q. Is this a new process?

A. No. Auto factories have used this method to remove small defects in body panels for decades. Since the late 70's and early 80's, thinner sheet metal combined with flexible paints opened the door to this process outside the factory. In many parts of the country hail damage is a common occurrence. Cities like Dallas, Denver and Oklahoma City have hundreds of paintless dent repair firms.

Q. Will the dents come back?

A. No! There is no way for metal to move on it's own. Since the dented sheet metal is returned to it's original position with direct pressure, only another direct force could dent the sheet metal again. In fact, stamped sheet metal has a memory, and our method returns the dented surface to its original, undamaged form.
