We get calls for dent repairs with paint damage. Dents of all sizes can get paint damage, from a small door ding, to bigger damage even hail damage dents can cause paint damage. Yes we can fix this type of damage but before we do there are some things you should know.
We do not do any painting with our repair process, but we do offer touch up paint services.
We are happy to refer you to some local body shops for your repair needs if needed.
Often times we can remove the dent even if there is paint damage BUT if you are then looking at having your vehicle repainted afterwords it is sometimes not the most cost effective to have paintless dent repair performed AND have the area repainted.
This can be determined with an in person estimate.
Types of Paint Damage
Multiple types of paint damage can happen. Some of the types of damage are:
All of these types of damages range from just minor surface or clear coat damage, all the way to deep damage down to the metal.
Cracked Paint Damage
Here is a short video showing some damage that we repaired using the paintless dent repair method. This damage had just a very small crack in the paint and just some minor clear coat could be applied to seal up the area, which is what the customer choose to do themselves. This is the least noticeable type of paint damage and soemtimes the customer doesnt even know there was a minor crack until we point it out to them when doing an estimate.
We often see hail storm damage crack paint when it hits in certain areas, like edges of panels. When hail stones hit right on the edge of a panel and forces the exterior panel to hit an inner edge structure of a panel it can often crack the exterior panels paint. This damage shown below was caused from a hail storm. This hail stone hit the top frame of a door on this 2o19 all aluminum Ford F150. The impact push the exterior metal inwards and into the inner structure bracing, causing the paint crack.
In this case a body shop is needed to complete this repair. We helped minimize work for the body shop in this repair by using our glue pulling method to pull this damage out for the body shop so they do not have to use any body fillers or bondo to fill this damaged area. After we pulled out the damaged area all the body shop needs to do now is sand the area down flat to remove the damaged paint area then apply primer to smooth the area out then paint the panel.

Sometimes when damage is caused in a vehicle the paint is scratched. Sometimes the impact item can scratch all the way through the layers of paint all the way down the to bare metal! In this video example this customer was about to turn his leased Infiniti back into the dealership. We discussed with him his damage and brought up that he should do some research on what type of damage is ok to be in his vehicle when it is turned in. Lease agreements often have certain things the dealership will NOT charge you for.

Fast & Affordable Hail Repair in Dell Rapids
Body shops are known for being pricey, especially when it comes to hail repair. They use resource and labor intensive methods that often require repainting, panel removal, and filling. Not only are these materials expensive, but the steps involved are also time consuming. This is a very inefficient way to repair small dents. If your paint is chipped or cracked, then a body shop might be the only option. However, for minor body damage like simple door dings a professional PDR crew is the way to go.
State of The Art Tools and Techniques
Our experts use a variety of tools and techniques to remove dents of all shapes and sizes. Nearly any dent, as long as it hasn’t cracked the pain, can be fixed using paintless dent repair. We are only limited by a few factors such as:
Dent Depth – If the dent small but very deep then the risk of tearing the metal is far too high.
Dent Location – Repairing dents on panel/door edges is difficult because the metal is tight and not very malleable.
