What is Paintless Dent Repair?

Ever come home from vacation to find your new car not looking so new? Driving down the highway and a sandstorm comes through and blasts the paint job? That can be frustrating, to say the least. That is when you realize that you need to look at restoring your vehicle back to its original luster.

Times have changed in how body damage repairs are completed. Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is the direction many Zerambo dent repair partners are moving. So, what is paintless dent removal?

PDR is a method to restore cars and trucks to original appearances after having experienced dents. Of course, this will only work where paint has not been compromised. This means no cracks or damage to the original paint.

But if the car body has only suffered dents, then PDR is the low cost and efficient direction to take.


How does PDR work?

The first thing an expert will do is look at the underside of the vehicle to access the damage. They know to gain access to areas and inspect the area of needed repair. Cars today have many areas that the everyday person cannot gain entry. However, for Zerambo Phoenix technicians, the repair work is easy as they have received appropriate training in how to handle the PDR job.

A couple things to remember about PDR

  • The size of the dent will affect the amount of work that is put into the repair.
  • Attention to detail is important so that the original paint is not
  • By using specialized tools, the PDR technician can access the area of the auto body that needs to be repaired.

For small repairs the process incorporates the professional applying pressure to the inside of the damaged area. Through gentle and consistent push pressure, the dent is eventually pushed out.

In larger repairs the same tactic is used from behind the dented surface. However, with specialized tools, attention is paid to the outside area of the body surface as well. Through manipulation on the exterior and interior, the dent is eventually removed.

The result is a car/truck body that looks as good as it did the day it came off the assembly line.

The Benefits of PDR

Today everyone is mindful about preserving and maintaining the environment. By utilizing the PDR practice, the repair job has no impact on the environment. That means no sanding or body fillers are needed to perform PDR at Zerambo Mesa. It is simply a technique that uses only tools to remove the dent and return the surface to its pristine condition.

Another benefit for PDR is that it is a low-cost method for handling the dent repair. This is cost effective since the actual PDR method us just the use of pressure application.

Since there is no need for attempting to blend paints, the original car finish is maintained.

Probably the more important aspect of PDR is the time savings that is involved. Where going into a body repair meant having to wait a few days, PDR is a matter of hours depending on the size of the job.

Paintless Dent Removal has eliminated the need for involved automobile body repair if there is no damage to the actual paint.
