A dent to your car can happen in your garage when a tool falls on the hood or on the road when another vehicle hits you. When you take your car for repair, the amount of work needed and the cost depends on the type of dent that you have. The following are the most common that we see at Everything Euro in Winston-Salem.
- Dings. These are the smallest dents on the exterior, measuring half an inch in diameter or less. They often happen when an external object, such as the car door of another vehicle or a shopping cart, hits the surface of your car body. As long as the paint isn’t affected, this is the simplest and least expensive dent to fix.
- Round Dents. When a circular object, such as a ball, hits your vehicle, it can produce a hollow round dent on the body. This can also happen during a hail storm. Because this dent is caused by objects that do not have sharp edges, the surface paint is not affected, and Paintless Dent Repair is an easy solution.This type of repair pushes the dent from the inside of the car panel. Careful massaging of the exterior returns it to its original position. Because the fix can be completed in only a few hours and no repainting is involved, the repair saves money and can usually be done in the same day.
- Sharp Dents. Objects with angles or sharp edges cause sharp dents. The imperfection may be small but deep, making them harder to repair. Paintless Dent Repair works on some sharp dents but others may require more extensive work, especially if the dent is located in an area that is hard to reach, such as under your car or where joints meet.
- Crease Dent. When an object hits a side panel or other exterior part and is dragged across the surface, you have a crease dent. The damage may be extensive, affecting not only the paint but also the metal body surface. Paintless Dent Repair does not affect these types of dents. Instead, advanced techniques with modern tools and automotive equipment are needed to restore the dented area to its original condition.
