When you have a dent in your car, you will want to bring your vehicle to an auto body repair shop. They can determine whether the dent is superficial or whether you sustained damage beneath the dent. From there, they can determine the best way to repair any damage. There are different techniques used to remove auto body dents, including paintless dent repair. Here is more information about paintless dent repair and why it may be a great option to remove a dent from your vehicle.
What is Paintless Dent Repair?
Paintless dent repair is a technique that is used to remove minor dings and dents from a vehicle. The most common way that paintless dent repair is done is through the use of suction. A tool that is adhered to the area of your car where the dent is present using suction. The tool is then pulled outward. The force of this helps to pop or pull the dent out, without damaging the body of your car. In some cases, paintless dent repair can also be done by pounding a dent out from the backside, but this is done less frequently than the suction method.
What Are the Benefits of Paintless Dent Repair?
The biggest benefit associated with paintless dent repair is that it is inexpensive. Many dents are filled in with a filler material. This material then needs to be sanded down. Once it is flush with the car, the car needs to be painted so the filler matches the car and the damaged area is not noticeable. This is time-consuming and costly. Using a paintless dent repair method means the car does not need to be repainted, which helps to keep expenses low.
Can Paintless Dent Repair Be Used to Remove Every Dent?
Paintless dent repair cannot be used to remove every dent. When a dent occurs, paint damage may occur as well. If the paint is already damaged, paintless dent repair may not be the best option, as the paint needs to be repaired anyhow. Additionally, not every dent can be pulled or pounded out. Some dents are too large or some dents may be stubborn and will not budge. In some cases, a repair technician may not know until they try whether paintless dent repair will work or not.
