Paintless Dent Repair and Hail Damage in Vaughan, GTA & North York
With paintless dent repair (PDR), you can get rid of shallow or minor dents on your vehicle body, without repainting your vehicle. Of course, in order to be successful, the paint finish must be intact. In case the paint is cracked or chipped, you may need to use our traditional dent and scratch repair services.
How does paintless dent repair work?
Today, with paintless dent repair, those unsightly dents and dings on your vehicle can be restored easily and inexpensively. Whether you’ve had conventional hail damage, or a rather large indentation, paintless dent repair may work (as long as paint isn't cracked).
With paintless dent repair (PDR), an area of indented vehicle metal is “pushed” back into shape without affecting the original factory paint. An experienced technician determines the best access to the damaged area, and proceeds to “massage” the metal into shape.
Using specialized tools, a technician can effectively repair dents and dings on the hood, doors, fenders, and even the trunk. For the most part, PDR is less laborious than your traditional auto body repair service. It therefore tends to be a less expensive option.
How much does it cost to get a dent repaired?

Can all dents be repaired?

PDR does have limitations, and in some circumstances, it’s not feasible to use the option.
- if the dent has any sharp edges or any torn metal
- if the paint on the inside of the dent is scratched or broken
- if the dented metal is located at the edge of a panel
- if the dented area has had any previous body work
