What is Hail Paintless Dent Removal (PDR)?

Texas is one of the most hail-prone states in the U.S., and our hail season is typically from April 15th – August 15th but can extend through mid-September. The most destructive hail storms tend to occur in mid-June.

Paintless dent removal, or paintless dent repair, is a process that our expert technicians use to gently remove and repair dents and dings caused by hail from your vehicle without affecting the vehicles paint job. The undersides of the hail damaged panels are massaged and flexed with an array of specialized tools until the panels return to their original shape. The dents and dings will never be covered with filler and paint, and your vehicle’s original coat of paint will be preserved. 

During the PDR process, you should expect:

  • No paint damage occurs during the hail damage repair process, since your vehicle’s paint decompresses along with the metal while our technicians work to repair your vehicle.
  • Dent removal is faster and more cost effective than repairs done at a traditional body shop because our experienced technicians use their expertise to preserve your vehicle’s original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts instead of replacing and painting new parts.
  • Environmental footprint is minimal, since PDR uses no paint, therefore no toxic paint fumes are released into our facilities and the environment. Additionally, the threat of paint thinners that could be washed down into the public drainage system and potentially permeate the local water supply is eliminated.
  • Your vehicle’s value is preserved, as PDR requires no painting and will not disturb the factory paint of your vehicle, which means that when the hail damage on your vehicle is fixed, your car will still have its original, best finish.
