Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is just that. It is the art of reshaping metal from the opposite side of the seen surface,restoring the damaged area back to its original factory state ,without harming or refinishing the exposed seen surface. This is primarily focused towards an automotive application, but I've also used this technique to repair kitchen sinks ,refrigerator doors,stoves,grills and other metal surfaced objects.
PDR was developed by Manufacturers to restore minor dents and damage to a vehicle back to the original factory flawless state. PDR restores your vehicle back to its original factory condition at a fraction of the cost that you would encounter having a conventional repair made at a body shop. This saves your original paint also saving you money from the value of your vehicle depreciating and the cost of your insurance premiums increasing. Most minor dents and dings fall below you insurance deductible. Even with hail damage, which is an extensive repair, and costly to insurance companies, hail damage is an act of nature and is covered, if you have comprehensive coverage on your insurance policy. A claim of this kind does not raise your insurance premiums.
Choosing A Technician
Not every technician is the same and not everyone can learn PDR. With PDR it's not about the number of years in the industry that shows experience to make a quality repair, it is learned ability and skill.
There is a plethora of people out there that have been in the industry for 20 + years attempting to perform PDR that still can't repair metal and will charge only a fraction of what it really should be, to lure you into using them, but what you end up with is an attempted repair that cannot be fixed except by taking your vehicle to a body shop, getting your vehicle repainted, and depreciating the value of your investment, costing you your insurance deductible and your premiums to increase.
