Here at Rocky Mountain Dent Service in Denver, we know that your time is valuable and you work hard for your money.

Paintless dent repair can save time and money, enabling you to get your car back faster and keep more money in your pocket.
So, what makes paintless dent repair so quick and cost effective? First, let’s take a look at traditional techniques to understand the difference.
When you bring your car in for a standard dent repair, the job can often expand and become tedious. A portion of the car’s body must be removed, and once the dent is repaired, it then needs to be sanded, repainted and the car reassembled. If it gets difficult to make the new paint match the original finish, the repair shop may end up having to repaint an entire section instead of just where the little ding was.
Now imagine you have several little dings from getting stuck in a hailstorm. It’s possible that you’ll pay for a much larger paint job even though the dents are shallow and didn’t even scratch your paint. That’s the beauty of paintless dent repair. In cases where the damage is minor and paint hasn’t been affected, it’s possible to fix the dent without having to repaint.
How is it that paintless dent repair can save time and money? Well, our specially trained technicians use specially designed tools to gently push the metal back into place from the back of the car’s body panel. This doesn’t affect anything on the front or cause any unnecessary damage to the paint.
This method drastically reduces the amount of time that your car is stuck in the shop by skipping the steps requiring sanding and painting and possibly repainting a broader section to better match colors. In turn, this reduces your repair bill. But don’t just take our word for it. Ask a car insurance company about paintless dent repair. They love it because it helps keep their payouts down after a hailstorm.
Unfortunately, paintless dent repair can’t be used in all situations. As we’ve mentioned before, the paint must be undamaged for this process to work. Plus, it depends on where the dent is located. There are some areas of the car that the tools simply can’t reach.
One more factor is the material that the car is made of. Older cars tend to be made of steel which is an easier material to work with for this process. Newer cars are more commonly made of aluminum and plastic. In some cases, it is still possible to use this method, but it usually takes a bit longer as more care should be taken to get the job done right.
Of course, choosing a reputable company like Rocky Mountain Dent Service in Denver will significantly improve the chances of a successful dent repair. There is no doubt about it, paintless dent repair can save time and money, so you should always use a shop that offers this option.
