Paintless dent repair is widely considered the most cost-effective, quickest, and most environmentally friendly solution to vehicle dent repairs by both insurance companies, insurance adjusters, and car owners.
So, what are the drawbacks of paintless dent repair? Is it all that it’s hyped up to be?
A question we hear frequently is, “Will PDR damage my paint?” Rumor has it that paintless dent repair will somehow loosen the paint due to the manipulation of the metal. If dent repair is performed by an experienced technician, this is simply not the case.
There are, however, a few circumstances when PDR is not a good option.
- Huge dents, such as dents caused by a collision, can stretch the metal, weaken the paint, and run the risk of damaging the paint.
- Dents that have cracks or chips are not good candidates for PDR.
- Paintless dent repair can get pricy in the event of a catastrophic hail storm BUT if you have comprehensive insurance coverage – auto hail repair is covered. The only cost obligation you will incure is the deductible which is covered at The Hail Shop USA.
