Undoing Damage with Paintless Dent Repair
Bring any vehicle back to life after an accident with the services from Dents Charlotte. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, our shop utilizes the unique technology of paintless dent repair. With PDR, we restore automobile panels damaged by dents, creases, or hail damage without the use of paint or fillers.
PDR: No More Dings
Outside of mechanical problems, body damage is perhaps one of the most frustrating aspects of vehicle ownership. Due to the lightweight and flexible construction of modern automobiles, dent repair has become much more common throughout the world. Whether your car received dents, dings, or creases, PDR can help you return the value of your car by restoring the panel’s original shape and texture.
PDR is designed to bring the metal back flush with the original panel surface without the use of paints or fillers/bondo. The process accomplishes this without paint cracking or destruction, provided the original paint has no existing weaknesses in it from external damage or environmental causes. Both large and small dents can be repaired, assuming there’s sufficient access to the dent from beneath the panel and that the actual panel has no more than surface damage. Any panel that has been altered to the point of distorting or bending edges in the overall shape may need an actual body shop to do the repairs.
Paintless Dent Removal in Charlotte: Undoing Hail Damage
Mother Nature can cause damage without warning. If your vehicle is caught in a hailstorm, we are available to take care of the damage as quickly as possible. Our repair services can be performed in as little as one day, depending on the extent of your damage.
Rapid repair of hail dents is the best way to save time and money, and keep your paint original. In most cases, hail damage does not occur with hail less than .75inch diameter. Dents beyond 2.5 inches in diameter do not generally repair as effectively as smaller damage does. Any side molding or accessories that are not a part of the actual body surface metal of the car are usually purchased separately and re-installed new if they are damaged from the storm.
Steps to Repairing Hail Damage:
When it comes to repairing hail damage, several steps must be taken. We generally start with gentle and careful liner removal to access the backside or underside of panels. After liners are removed, the dents are restored by a technical process of re-establishing the original appearance of the panel to match that of the normal surface on your vehicle. The panels are checked for original appearance, liners are re-installed, and the vehicle is prepared for delivery.
For your convenience, we can also offer our customers exclusive automotive detailing after hail repair that includes cleaning, color sanding, compounding, glazing, and waxing the vehicle. Detail service is provided by a separate organization at additional costs and must be scheduled ahead of time. Although you may purchase detail service at increased costs, we at Dents Charlotte feel it is well worth the price to protect your vehicle.
