Paintless Dent Repair (PDR), also known as Paintless Dent Removal is a fairly new discovery which involves an accumulation of techniques for repairing and removing dents and dings from automobiles. This concept has proven to be more cost effective when dealing with hail repair than the traditional methods of conventional hail repairs which includes a more intense and expensive process requiring paint and body filler over the vehicle. Keeping your factory paint is the industries preferred method to use if possible because the factory finish is typically the best and is often difficult to duplicate. Paintless dent repair helps to maintain the value of your vehicle by a process of gently massaging the dents with the most precise position of the tool being used. However, it is not always possible to save your factory finish over your entire vehicle because the hail damage is to severe. If this is the case, then your vehicle may have some conventional and some paintless hail repairs.
