Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)

At Chip ‘n Scratch, we specialize in Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) for car, truck and RV dealerships.

PDR: A quicker, better, and less expensive way to see those dings and dents in your autobody “disappear.”

PDR is used to knead the metal back to its factory shape. We work on the damage from the inside of the panel to press the ding or dent back out without harming the paint. When our fast and careful technicians service your repair, you can save over what a body shop may charge.  In case the paint is chipped or cracked, we do perform some body shop techniques —we will let you know what we can do.

Most PDR techniques are what you would call “non-intrusive.” As described above our PDR technicians use specially designed tools specifically designed for this highly effective repair to meticulously manipulate  the damaged metal back into its original form.

If you’re familiar with traditional methods of dent and ding correction, you may be asking yourself whether or not PDR really works. And the answer is a resounding “Yes.” The process is so effective and our techs are so skilled that in the majority of instances, the dents and dings are removed completely. You can plan on not being able to detect where the original damage was at all. The majority of dents and dings can be taken out of your car or RV’s body for less than the price of traditional body work.

As mentioned above, if there is some chipping or cracking in the paint, we can let you know what can be done about it. Our paint chip repair process is an easy and effective way to touch-up minor automotive chipped paint and road rash.  (For more about this, see Paint Chip Repair).
