Paintless dent removal is partly problem solving and partly ART. It is performed by logically determining a repair plan and then artistically reshaping the metal back into its original form with specialty tooling and using highly skilled techniques. The ART is the exact sensitivity of how hard to move the sheetmetal.
Paintless dent repair technicians at Vancouver Dent Pro are not self trained but trained at legitimate specialty schools just for paintless dent removal. After basic training, it takes 800 - 1000 hours of practice just to repair a quarter sized dent perfectly. 80% of the time, this is done by accessing the back of the damaged area. In the other major process, called Glue pull PDR, the damage is pulled from the outside through the paint with adapters hot-glued to the surface.
These factors make it extremely important that the technician is experienced or well versed, as once a “repair” has been done poorly, it is very difficult to turn back the clock. At this time it’s usually necessary to remove the paint, grind and fill the surface to prepare for repaint in a conventional Body-shop.
Estimating the cost of PDR typically involves size across, depth, and location. many times dents exist on bodylines which also add complexity to a repair because there is much more care and effort to repair these dents without damaging the paint. Sometimes panels need to be removed to gain access to the area behind the dent. All the above factors play a role in the cost of a repair.
