Paintless dent repair has quickly become the industry standard for auto insurance companies due to its effectiveness and ability to preserve your factory paint job. Replacing your car’s paint is actually one of the most expensive jobs, making it vital to preserve it whenever possible. Maintaining your factory paint job also ensures that any warranties you have from the manufacturer remain intact. Even though paintless dent repair has countless benefits and is the preferred method for repairing auto hail damage, there are some limitations when it comes to this methodology.
The Limitations of Paintless Dent Repair for Auto Hail Damage
The condition of your vehicle’s paint is definitely one of the major considerations. If your car has any cracked, chipped, or severely damaged paint, repairs beyond PDR are required. PDR can fix the dents but cannot fix damaged paint. In some cases, if the extent of the damage on any of your body panels is severe, replacement may be the only option. This is required when auto body panels are warped, stretched, or detrimentally dented. In addition to paint damage and severity, there are some rare cases that feature inaccessible dents. If our technicians aren’t able to access these points, then PDR is not a viable option.
Choosing the Right PDR Specialist
Vehicle owners need to be aware that PDR is a highly specialized skill that requires training, experience, and advanced tools. Some auto body shops will not repair dents on aluminum due to its more lightweight and flexible nature. Inexperienced PDR technicians have a higher chance of cracking the paint on aluminum parts, making it pertinent to find the right PDR specialist. United Hail Pros has a multitude of experience conducting PDR on aluminum parts, ensuring meticulous standards.
