What Exactly Is Paintless Dent Repair?

Back to Blog Menu

We’ve all been there—enjoying a summer drive down a Saskatchewan road only to find out an unexpected hail storm caused dents on your vehicle. Thankfully, there is a simple solution that’s also easy on your wallet!

What is it?

Paintless Dent Repair, or PDR, is an efficient and gentle way to repair creases, dents, and dings. As long as the paint is intact, we can use this technique to restore your vehicle’s body to factory-like condition without having to replace a section of the vehicle. Without PDR, dent removal would be quite costly. A repair would involve suctioning the dent out, then reapplying paint or replacing the damaged part entirely.

How is it done?

Our experienced team restructures the dent from behind the damaged area. We will then push the dent back into place from behind, or underneath, the dent. This means the outside of your car stays intact!

The Benefits

Paintless Dent Repair is an environmentally-friendly service as it restores a vehicle back to its pre-dent condition without having to use parts or paint. By refraining from using paint in the process, we reduce the amount of harmful chemicals that enter our atmosphere.

Additionally, Paintless Dent Repair ensures a perfect colour match each and every time! Because there is no paint to replace you won’t notice any discoloration on the repaired surface. Your vehicle will have the flawless, smooth, finish you love.

This process typically has a same-day turnaround, so you’ll be back on the road—dent free—in no time!
