Auto Dent Repair in Denver: PDR VS. Traditional Repair

Feb 24, 2020 | Auto Hail Damage Repair, Hail Damage, Hail Damage Repair, Hail Specialists, Paintless Dent Repair PDR


Depending on the type of auto dent repair your car needs in Denver, there are two types of repair you may consider. The first is Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) and the second is Traditional Dent Repair.

Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)

PDR is an advanced restorative process that returns your automobile to its original pre-loss condition. From dents, dings to hail damage, PDR is a more cost-efficient way for auto dent repair. However, PDR can only be performed if your car’s paint has not been broken from the damage.

All dents can effectively be addressed with PDR if no paint has been removed from the damage. However, this is dependent on the technician’s experience and the type of metal the dent is on. Different metal materials such as steel or aluminum, or steel panels from different manufacturers would repair differently. The braces that support the panel’s structural integrity and strength will also affect the difficulty of the repair.

The average delivery time for Paintless Dent Repair is much faster than the traditional method.

At Hail Specialists, it only takes 1 to 3 days to complete all auto dent repairs in Denver. This is because PDR manipulates the metal back into shape by massaging the area behind the dent. Whereas traditional dent repair uses a body filler in the dent cavity and new paint over the area. By massaging the area into place, it removes the worry of paint matching or diminishing your car’s value.

Traditional Dent Repair

Another method of fixing dents is the Traditional Dent Repair. This is used when dents are not able to be addressed with PDR.

Traditional Dent Repair fills in the dent on an autobody and sands it into shape. Once satisfied with the outcome, new paint will be painted over the affected area. During hail season, most repair shops get booked out for a year because it takes 30 to 60 days for the repair to be done.

While it may bring the car’s exterior looking almost brand new, it is not a financially friendly method of repairing dents in the long run. With the introduction of fillers and paint, it will impact your car’s resale value.
