What is paintless dent repair?

Paintless dent repair, or PDR, is a relatively new form of automotive dent repair. The PDR process requires no sanding, filling or repainting. Instead, certified technicians use specialized knowledge, training, tools and techniques to restore dents and dings back to factory condition. When done properly, PDR is both safe and effective without weakening steel or aluminum panels or making them susceptible to rust or corrosion.

With more than 20 years as a collision technician, Wally Inskeep knows how to expertly tackle any dent. The advancement of paintless dent repair only deepened Inskeep’s commitment to the field as he saw its impressive capabilities. “To say that I was blown away by what I saw would be an understatement,” he says.

This revolutionary repair took the original form of repairing dents with sanding, primer, masking and reapplication of paint, and simplified the process, making it easier and more environmentally friendly. “It does not involve any paint, waste from sanding or as many chemicals and energy,” he says.
