Can it be Fixed with PDR? A Complete Guide to Paintless Dent Repair

If your vehicle has sustained a nasty dent, whether it’s a parking lot scar or a dent from an accident, there’s a good chance it can be repaired with PDR. 

Most minor dents can be repaired by the dent repair experts at Ted’s Dent Works so long as the paint is still intact, and the dent isn’t too complex in nature. Since paintless dent repair can remove 80-90% of dents, it is the best way to get a dent out of your car.

If we can access the area behind the dent, we can often massage out the dent with the Paintless Dent Repair process. 

The best thing about PDR is that we do not need to add body filler, need to repaint, or even disturb your vehicle’s factory paint during the repair process. 

Because of this, PDR is also far less time-consuming than the traditional dent repair process where a body panel is sanded down, body filler is added, and the panel is repainted.

If you want to have your vehicle dent free for a fraction of the cost and in less time, the paintless dent repair process is a great way to restore your vehicle’s body panels. 

Most paintless dent repairs are far less expensive than repainting and traditional repairs, and they may be completed in under a day!

Common Causes of Small Dents that can be Repaired with PDR

The wonderful thing about paintless dent repair is that it can repair a number of different small dents that have been caused by a variety of things. 

It’s by far the quickest and most cost-effective form of small dent repair that exists. Some of you may be wondering what types of damage can be repaired with paintless dent repair and what some of the common causes of small dents may be. 

Hail Damage can be Repaired with Paintless Dent Repair

During the rainy season, PDR technicians have usually kept pretty busy thanks to the many hail damage repairs that need to be made. 

Hail damage normally affects the horizontal body panels on a vehicle. When hail falls from the sky, it will commonly leave tiny dents on the hood, the roof, the trunk, the tops of the fenders, and quarter panels on your vehicle.

Bigger hailstones falling from the sky mean that there are likely bigger dents in your vehicle. In some cases, the sides of your vehicle can even be damaged by hail as well if there are heavy winds during a hail storm. 

Strong blowing winds can cause the side of the vehicle facing the wind to be hail damaged and also require hail damage repair.

Collisions can be the cause of Small Dents

Collisions are often the cause of small dents. We all know that accidents happen and that vehicles bump into each other sometimes. If you see a small dent on your bumper, door, fender, or another body panel on your vehicle, it could have been caused by another vehicle bumping into it.

Look closely at your dent. If you notice another colour of paint in your dent, it’s likely that another car collided with yours. 

Although this may be alarming, the other vehicle’s paint will normally rub off and so long as your paint has not cracked and the impact scratching is not too severe, these dents can be repaired with paintless dent repair.
