What is PDR? PDR or Paintless Dent Repair is a method of removing minor dents and dings without removing any paint from the vehicle. This is done by very patiently massaging the dent out from the back of the panel using specialized tools. What are the benefits of PDR? The most important benefit is quality. This method is the closest you can get to the dent never happening in the first place. No grinding, bondo, fillers, or primers are needed because your original factory paint is not disturbed. There are no problems with filler or paint shrinkage months after the repair as is typical with most body shop repairs. Cost is also a major benefit of PDR. Repairs are typically between one-quarter to one-third the cost of conventional dent repair. Time savings is yet another advantage. Many dents can be fixed in less than an hour. Hail damage is typically fixed in one day with PDR. A body shop may take 2-3 weeks for the same type of damage. Environmental concerns are another benefit of PDR. Since this process keeps the original factory paint on your vehicle, there is no need for the paint, chemicals, or other toxins that are used extensively in body shops when repairing dents. PDR is 100% environmentally friendly. Do most PDR technicians do quality work? Unfortunately as of now, there are no licensing or performance standards for this industry. This is mostly due to PDR still being in the growing stages as a profession. Making a decision on which PDR technician to use based on the cheapest price can often be a mistake, as skill levels vary widely among technicians. See the BAD PDR page for examples of sub-standard workmanship. Will my paint be damaged? No. Today's factory paints are very flexible and will not be damaged in any way by this process. PDR is the only way to repair a dent and still keep your factory paint. Will my dents be 100% gone? On minor dents, in most cases, yes. The deeper the dent, the more difficult it is to repair. Even on larger dents, most people are amazed at the results. Will my dents come back? Absolutely not. Once a dent has been removed properly with PDR, it never comes back. Can any dent be fixed? No. The most important factors in determining if a dent can be repaired by PDR are depth and location. Dents the size of a dinner plate or larger can be fixed successfully, as long as they are not too deep. On the other hand, some dents that are as small as a dime but very deep, cannot be fixed using PDR because the metal is too stretched. Cracked paint can also be an indication that a dent is too deep. The most common dents fixed are the size of a golf ball and under. Most (about 95%) minor dents can be repaired. About 5% of minor dents can't be fixed due to depth or location. Areas such as some quarter panel opening lips, some forward areas of heavily braced hoods, or the very edges of some panels are examples of bad locations. CAN PDR help me SELL MY CAR? Ever hear the saying "Image is everything"? Most people judge a car by its appearance. If it looks good they assume it has been well taken care of. Used car dealers and wholesalers know this. They also know what they spend on PDR will make them many times over what they spend, and will help them sell the car quicker. If you're selling your car, PDR is one of the best ways to get top dollar, more interested buyers, and a quicker sale.
History-- The Daddy Of All Hail Storms: A. Huffmeyer. This fearsome event occurred on the evening of May 19th 1868 in the San Antonio and surrounding area. Hailstones weighed from one fourth pound to over two pounds each. It started northwest of the city about Helotes, and took in a stretch of country four or five miles wide, and spent its force about three miles below the city. There was absolutely nothing left in its wake. Fields of corn, waisthigh, were cut down, and all of the fruit trees were trimmed of leaves and fruit, and the beautiful gardens were beaten into the ground. Thousands of chickens, turkeys, and birds were killed, dogs, calves, sheep and goats were also killed, and there wasn't a roof, door or window left on the north side of the buildings. Further mentions: St. Mary's College; Ed Steves, the father of the present owner of the Stevens lumber yards; Also mentions a couple of other notable hailstorm in the region.
