|What is PDR?|
PDR stands for "Paintless Dent Removal" - which is most commonly defined as the fine art of removing dents, dings, creases, hail damage and sometimes larger dents from a vehicle, by a PDR technician who has mastered a process of restoring metal back to its original condition without disturbing the paint finish of the vehicle.
Because the original factory finish is preserved, there is no need for grinding or sanding the paint off, and then filling the dent with bonding agents, primers, and sealers that are typically needed with conventional body repairs. Improved techniques and skilled PDR technicians have helped PDR gain popularity.
The stronger, more resilient paint finishes of modern cars can allow larger dents to now be successfully repaired via PDR. Repairs can often be completed in as little as an hour or less, and the cost is significantly less than traditional methods. This is in part because paint matching is difficult, time consuming, and expensive, but paintless dent repair avoids these issues and expenses by leaving the original finish intact.
PDR is also a completely environmentally friendly process, as it does not employ the use of any chemicals or other kinds of toxic materials, as opposed to other possible repair options. Most of the time, a PDR Tech can travel to you, and the dents can be removed onsite at your home or business while you wait.
