Paintless Dent Repair PortlandArtistic Auto Body offers a service called Paintless Dent Repair, or PDR for short. PDR saves you time and money, and it produces a high quality repair!

Paintless Dent Repair is a method of repairing minor dents and dings without damaging the vehicle’s paint. Basically, the dent is patiently massaged out from the back of the panel or sometimes from the front utilizing specific tools.

The reason that Paintless Dent Repair saves you money is that less materials are needed: no bondo, fillers, or primers are used. Cutting out those extra steps also means that PDR can be completed in a few hours rather than a few days. In addition, no grinding means the repair is less intrusive, which increases the quality of the repair.

Not all dents can be repaired in this manner, but we consider the possibility while writing our estimates. Paintless Dent Repair works best on small dents that are accessible from the back side of a panel, that occur on a flat area, and where the paint is not scratched or cracked.
