Chicago Dent Removal & Repair

What is PDR?

Paintless dent repair (PDR), also known as “paintless dent removal”, is a collection of techniques for removing minor dents and dings from the body of a motor vehicle. A wide range of damage can be repaired using PDR; however, usually if there is paint damage, PDR may be unsuitable. PDR is proven to be a less expensive way to repair dents and still keep the original finish of the vehicle. Our dent removal process is faster, less expensive and superior in quality to traditional body shop methods.

The most common practical use for PDR is the repair of hail damage, door dings, minor body creases, and minor bumper indentations. The techniques can also be applied to help prepare the damaged panel for paint. Such applications are referred to as “push to paint”, or “push for paint”.

Limiting factors for a successful repair using PDR include the flexibility of the paint, and the amount the metal has been stretched by the damage incurred. Generally, the more shallow the dent, there is a greater chance of paintless dent repair being a suitable option. Even dents with a several inch diameter are can be repairable with this method, as long as the dent is shallow and uncreased. Hence, often extremely sharp dents and creases may not be repairable – at least not without painting afterwards, although a very skilled master tech may surprise you with what they can get out.

The technology of PDR has been around for many years, and has become popularly adopted for such purposes as lease return, auction preparation, rental car maintenance, and increasingly, consumer vehicle repair. Consequently, consumer-level awareness of the techniques has increased in recent years.

PDR process is also 100 % environmentally friendly – no toxic materials or chemicals used in this process along with not wasting/recycling old panels.

How Does PDR Work?

Dentnology’s highly-skilled technicians, using specially designed hand tools, gently push the dents out of a vehicle’s body from behind the affected panel. The result is a dent-free panel, with the original paint completely intact. The original parts are not replaced during this process.

The art of removing minor dents, door dings, and fixing hail damage on the metal panels of automobiles, without the use of fillers or paint, is a process by which the dent is worked out from the back side by a trained professional using specialized tools. The results are nothing short of amazing and best of all you will have a blemish-free vehicle which has been restored to its original factory finish.

PDR is 100% environmentally friendly because no chemicals, fillers, or paints are used in the process. No vehicle panels are wasted or recycled.
