Paintless Dent Repair
Keep Your Car Looking Newer Longer
Is that used vehicle you are purchasing just not “perfect”? A few dents and dings in the doors? Through our partnership with Dent Zone Companies, Open Road offers you a Paintless Dent Repair service that will make your car look closer to like it did when it came off the showroom floor. PDR does not use heat, cold, dry ice, electricity or anything else that might harm the existing paint or factory finish, which in turn, does not affect the value of the vehicle.
How does Paintless Dent Repair work?
Dents are accessed from the backside of the damaged panel using specially designed tools to slowly massage the damaged panel back to its original shape and form.
What dents can or cannot be repaired with PDR?
Dents that are repairable are somewhere around the size of a half-dollar or less, although larger dents can be repaired by a highly skilled technician. Most non-collision dents can be successfully repaired with the PDR process. However, there are factors that do exist which limit the repairability of some dents. These factors include the sharpness of the impact point, the location of the dent as compared to the reinforcement structure of the damaged panel, and the depth of the dent.
Why choose Paintless Dent Repair over traditional methods?
There is no need for the use of body putty or paint with the PDR process. Therefore, the vehicle retains its original factory-finish which helps the vehicle retain its value. The process is environmentally safe, quicker and considerably less expensive than traditional body shop methods. The repair is guaranteed against future defects, reappearance and satisfaction of the customer.
How long do repairs take?
Minor door dings and parking lot damage can be repaired in as little as 15 to 20 minutes, or about the time it takes to have an oil change. Repair times vary based on the severity of the damage, however, vehicles can be repaired in 1/3 of the amount of time it takes to repair a vehicle using traditional body shop methods.PDR services can be performed mobile at a convenient location determined by you and the technician.
