How Does Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) Work?
The paintless dent removal and repair process incorporates the highest industry standards with state-of-the-art technology to ensure your vehicle retains its factory finish.
- Step 1: Thoroughly Inspect and Assess the Dent(s) and Damage
Dent Baron utilizes an industry specialized light board that shows us all the details of the dent that need to be worked out. Once we have assessed the damage, we will decide the best route to take to restore your vehicle to pre-loss condition.
- Step 2: Acquire Access Points to Remove the Dent
Once we have established access points, we remove any necessary trim panels, tail lights, bumpers, headlights or any other parts that may obstruct the backside of the panel.
- Step 3: Massage the Dent Into Pre-loss Condition
Upon access to the dent on your vehicle, we gently massage the backside of the panel, using specialized paintless dent removal tools, until it’s back to pre-loss condition.
- Step 4: Apply Exterior Dent Removal When Needed
For dent repairs that we can’t access from the back or interior of the vehicle, we utilize industry-specific tools and glues to remove the dent from the exterior of the panel. Please note that the exterior dent removal process can be more time-consuming and usually more costly.
