In general, a vehicle’s exterior is pretty durable and engineered to withstand the brunt of daily driving. However, with enough force, an object can minorly or majorly dent the exterior. The elements can wreak havoc in a car, such as a bad hailstorm or a tree branch falling during a storm. Basic human error can also be the source, such as when someone accidentally opens their car door too wide or collisions with another vehicle. Simple happenstance is always a possibility, whether it be in the form of a runaway shopping cart that landed at the side of your vehicle or a piece of road debris that collided with your car on the road. Unless you never drive your vehicle and always keep it in your garage, the chances of a dent occurring are not far-fetched. Here at Brown Collision Center in Charlottesville, Virginia, we are trained and certified in all manners of dent repair and dent removal. We use industry-leading tools and our many years of expertise to flawlessly and successfully remedy all forms of dents.
Types Of Dent Repair
How exactly do we perform our dent repair services? The first type of service we offer is paintless dent removal (PDR). PDR is reserved for dents that don’t cause accompanying damage, such as a scratch or chipping paint. These are most commonly round dents (often caused by hail or other round objects), car dings, and crease dents. The repair process involves special tools and a level of precision to push dents back into place. Since there is no further damage to the vehicle’s exterior, no filling, sanding, or painting is needed to complete the repair. Our bodywork experts will also conduct traditional dent repair for dents that feature a scratch, scuff, or paint disturbance. The beginning of the process is similar to PDR—specialized tools to restore the shape. From there, any scratches and paint chips will be sanded down to create a smooth and even surface; filling may also be needed during this step. Once it is restored to its original form, our team will paint the area using our color-matching factory paint technology.
