The Paintless Dent Repair Process

What is Paintless Dent Repair?

Hail storms, golf balls, walnuts, bumps, and dings – Paintless Dent Repair is often the most affordable, most seamless, and least invasive method when it comes to removing the dents from metal panels. Tri-County Paintless Dent Repair utilizes industry-specific tools and training to ease nasty dents out of the panels. When done correctly, this leaves the existing finish intact, correcting the damage without leaving a trace!

How Does PDR Work?

Paintless dent repair is the SMART choice and allows the technician to maintain the integrity of the existing vehicle finish. SMART is an acronym for “Small Medium Area Repair Technology” and allows for the fast, efficient removal of dings, dents, and scratches without the need for days of traditional bodywork. How does SMART paintless dent repair work? By working the damaged panel from the back (or occasionally the front), the dent can be massaged out of the metal panel. This negates the need for expensive and possibly mismatched finish removal and respraying.

Traditional body shop techniques center around filling in the dent, trying to match the color of the existing finish, and often refinishing the entire body panel. PDR repairs the actual dent itself and blends the existing factory finish to create a seamless result. No method looks better and Tri-County Paintless Dent Repair is convinced that you will find our SMART PDR to be the best method to get your car road-ready once again.
