The Most Common Cosmetic Auto Repairs

There is a common misconception that auto repairs strictly pertain to structural issues that determine whether the vehicle can move forward, backward and side-to-side.  Collisions and other accidents also necessitate cosmetic repairs.  Our autobody repair shop is here to bring out the best in your vehicle after an accident both in terms of aesthetics and functionality. 

Scratches and Dents

Nearly every auto accident results in scratches, dents, and other visual blemishes.  Thankfully, repairing these superficial issues is typically more affordable and faster than remedying structural issues.  Though there is the potential for the repair of a luxury vehicle’s exterior to be somewhat costly, most superficial dents and scratches can be repaired for as little as $100 and as much as $1,000 or more.  The nuances of the damage to your unique vehicle including the depth of the scratches and chips shape the cost of knocking out the dents, eliminating scratches, and repainting the exterior.

Some dings and dents on automobile doors can be repaired with our paintless repair process.  The depth of the damage in question ultimately determines if our paintless repair will prove effective.  If the paint is not cracked or missing and the back section of the panel is accessible, such a repair will prove quite fast and affordable. 


If you are involved in a fender-bender, your bumper will require repair or replacement.  The majority of automobile manufacturers have shifted away from bumpers made of exposed metal to those of the plastic variety.  The use of plastic bumpers enhances the vehicle’s aerodynamics, improves fuel economy, and decreases vehicle weight. 

Unfortunately, plastic covers dent surprisingly easily, meaning even a minor collision has the potential to cause considerable damage.  There are also some automobiles with built-in elements within the front grille, sensors, safety equipment, and/or headlight washers, meaning they will prove that much more costly to replace.  However, if you only have minor damage to your bumper, it will likely cost a couple of hundred dollars to repair.

Tire Damage

Damage to an automobile’s tires after striking a pothole, riding over nails, or hitting other sharp objects necessitates timely repair.  Even if there is only a slow leak as a result of a collision or contact with an impediment in the road, it should be patched as quickly as possible.  Our autobody repair shop is here to perform that patching or install a completely new tire.

A Broken Windshield

If your windshield is cracked or has significant damage, it will require replacement.  However, if there are only slight stars to the glass after a collision or other unfortunate event, it might be possible to repair that damage and prevent it from extending throughout the glass.
