Paintless Dent Repair - How Does It Work?

Pointing at Car Dent

Any Santa Clarita driver who has been unfortunate enough to be in need of car dent repair can tell you what a hassle it is, both in terms of time and money. That’s why some drivers opt for paintless dent repair as a faster and more affordable alternative. How much does dent repair cost when it is paintless? The staff in our service center want you to be informed, so let’s take a closer look at the details below.

The Advantages of Paintless Dent Repair

Why would a Valencia car owner opt for paintless dent repair? There are a few important benefits of using this method of car dent repair. Here’s a list:

  • It’s less expensive.
  • It’s less time-consuming.
  • It helps to retain resale value, as there is no new paint over the factory paint.

How Does Paintless Dent Repair Work?

Conventional car dent repair typically involves lots of hammering, sanding, and repainting. It takes a lot of time, it’s expensive, and when it’s finished you can usually tell that work was done if you look closely enough. But paintless dent repair simplifies the process through the use of specialized tools to pop the dent back into place without disturbing the paint. However, it’s not suited for every situation. Your car may not be a good candidate if any of the following is true:

  • The dent has sharp edges or torn metal.
  • The paint inside a dent is broken or scratched.
  • The indented metal is situated near the edge of a panel.
  • The dented area has had previous bodywork done.

How Much Does Dent Repair Cost?

As we said, this method is far less expensive than traditional car dent repair. So, how much does dent repair cost when it’s paintless? Minor damage can cost between $75 and $125 to repair, while larger collisions will range from $150 and $450. But we’ll have to see the car to give an exact estimate, so schedule an appointment with us. Here are some factors that can impact the cost:

  • The extent of the damage
  • Size of the dents
  • Where the dents are located
