What types of dents can be repaired with PDR?

Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) is most effective for repairing various types of small to medium-sized dents. Here are the common types of dents that can be repaired with PDR:

  1. Door Dings: Door dings are shallow and small dents typically caused by other car doors hitting your vehicle in parking lots or tight spaces.

  2. Hail Damage: PDR is often used to repair hail damage, which consists of numerous small dents caused by hailstones impacting the vehicle’s surface.

  3. Minor Creases: PDR can address minor creases that have not stretched the metal too severely. The technician carefully manipulates the metal back to its original shape.

  4. Dents from Shopping Carts: Dents resulting from shopping carts or other light impacts can usually be effectively repaired with PDR.

  5. Soft Dents: Soft dents are shallow, small, and relatively easy to push out from the backside without causing damage to the paint.

  6. Round Dents: Round dents, such as those caused by impact from small objects, are often good candidates for PDR due to their shape and size.

  7. Dents on Flat Panels: Dents on flat panels, such as the hood, roof, or trunk, are easier to access and repair with PDR.

  8. Dents Away from Edges: Dents located away from the edges of the vehicle’s body panels are generally more accessible and easier to repair using PDR techniques.
