Owning a vehicle means having the unexpected occur whether we like it or not. While we can certainly take preventative measures to extend the longevity of our vehicles, there’s nothing we can do about the weather patterns that mother nature tends to throw in our direction. Among the worst of these for any vehicle owner to deal with is hail. These stones can wreak havoc on the structural integrity of your vehicle. And, if you get caught in one, there’s a chance that you’ll need some repair work done.
A Better Way to Body Shop
In the past, hail damage had to be repaired by a local auto body shop. This meant leaving your car with them, being without transportation for a few days, and having to deal with the process. This meant removing paint, hammering out the dents, and then painting over the repaired area with paint that may or may not match your original color. However, times have changed, and there’s a better way to get those abrasions and eyesores repaired in a timely manner.
Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)
PDR is the newest technique in the auto repair world thats’ a massive benefit to the average consumer. This process doesn’t compromise the paint of your vehicle. This is done by removing the exterior panels of the affected areas and attacking the dents from behind. This process leaves the paint untouched, and it’s also much quicker. Now, instead of being without transportation for several days, dents can be repaired that same day you bring your vehicle in.
Better for the Environment
All across the scope of the automotive industry, there’s been a massive joint effort to take better care of the environment. And while several manufacturers have been producing more EV vehicles, PDR helps lessen the damage caused by harmful chemicals used in the auto repair world. Because paint and primer aren’t used, the PDR process is safer for the environment and more ecologically responsible. Hailstones can be damaging, but PDR can get your car back to its original shape in less time.
