What is Paintless Dent Removal?

Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) works with the memory of your vehicle's metal or aluminum. Using specialized custom made tools we meticulously manipulate the dent to permanently remove the dent. This restores the panel (door, fender, quarter....) to its original shape.

The process does not harm the original paint because today's polyurethane paints and thinner gauge metal are very flexible. PDR works from behind the dent so there's no sanding, painting or body fillers involved. Dent Werks PDR has also mastered the older Classic and Muscle cars with much thicker metal and older paints.

How long does an average repair take?

The average repair usually takes less time than lunch for a minor ding or dent.

What percentage of dings and dents are repairable using paintless dent removal?

We, at Dent Werks PDR, are able to repair many dents using paintless dent removal that other PDR shops turn down. We feel 95% of the vehicle is accessible to us, at Dent Werks PDR, using paintless dent removal. We make custom tools that are only available to us. We have had many experiences where customers have been turned down by other PDR techs, only to have us perform a perfect repair.

My car has an aluminum hood. Can it be repaired using PDR?

Dent Werks PDR repairs all types of metals used in the automobile industry. Aluminum may be more difficult to repair than traditional metals, however, we at Dent Werks PDR have extensive knowledge and experience working with aluminum and we can achieve perfect results.

What types of dings and dents cannot be repaired using PDR?

Most types of dings and dents can be repaired, but there are some exceptions.

  • Sharp, deep dings and dents where the metal has been stretched too far to recover.
  • Dings, dents, and creases where the paint is cracked are generally not repairable using paintless dent removal.

What are the advantages of PDR vs. Body Shop work?

Paintless dent removal is NOT the same thing as body shop repairs. The vehicles original finish is not disturbed because we do NOT use fillers, sanding or painting.

You need not worry if the colors match, because we DO NOT PAINT!

No overnight stays or rental cars are required, because most repairs can be done in less than one-hour. Hail damage is an exception.

The biggest advantage is your vehicles' resale value is improved!

How much does PDR cost?

Paintless Dent Removal costs significantly less than traditional body shops. Repairs start as low as $65.00.
