Why should I choose this method of repair?

Will insurance cover PDR repairs?
Yes. Paintless Dent Repair is the insurance industry’s preferred method of hail damage repair. Door dings and minor dents typically cost less than your deductible so it’s better to not even file a claim!
Will my dent be 100% gone?
Most minor dings and dents, yes. The more complex the damage is, the more difficult it is to repair. Some of these may not come out 100% but still result in a very acceptable repair. Most customers can’t even tell where it was.
Will my dents come back?
No. On a properly preformed repair the metal will be as strong as it was prior to the damage and will never come back. Unless of course it gets hit again in the same area.
Can any dent be repaired?
No. Depth and location are key when determining whether a dent can be repaired or not. A large but softer dent can be repaired easier than a small extremely sharp one. Dents that are too sharp or creased cannot be repaired because the metal is too badly stretched. About 5% of dents cannot be repaired due to their locations, such as dents on the very edge of panels with double folding metal and heavily braced areas.
