Paintless dent removal can be a practical option for your vehicle that has gone through a bad hailstorm and looks pockmarked with dents and dimples.
Impact Paintless Dent Repair has trained technicians who can remove dents, dings, dimples, and creases without having to involve what most people would consider to be traditional repair and painting processes. At places like Impact, special tools are used to apply pressure to the backside of the panel on the vehicle. This pressure application can remove surface imperfections. Sometimes the process involves bonding a device to the exterior of the panel in order to pull the dent from the topside. Either way, it’s considered paintless dent repair, and it works!
The Factors at Play
What determines whether paintless dent removal is a practical option? There are several factors. For instance, the flexibility of the vehicle’s paint could be a limiting factor. That said, most cars and trucks today have paint finishes which can easily handle paintless dent repair. Then there’s the extent to which the metal has been stretched. How thick is it? Is it in a flat or curved area of the vehicle? How intense was the overall impact?
In general, shallower dents are easier to remove using paintless dent repair. They can be wide– that’s okay– but if they’re too deep, then it’s a problem that requires another form of repair. Typically, though, dents from hail tend to be shallow enough whereas the paint and metal aren’t stretched, and therefore, fixable using the paintless dent repair method.
Finally, if a vehicle has very sharp dents or creases, then traditional repairs are probably going to be needed.
