Frequently Asked Questions
Paintless Dent Repair FAQs
What is Paintless Dent Repair or PDR?
Do you provide mobile dent repair services?
What are the benefits of using PDR vs. conventional repair?
Can you repair dents in plastic bumpers?
Yes, but on a case-by-case basis. We have had great success in repairing or removing dents that are in plastic bumpers.
Can you repair dents in steel or chrome bumpers?
No, steel and chrome bumpers are generally too thick for the repair tools and processes we use.
Can you repair dents in motorcycle tanks and fenders?
Yes, we have specialized tools and stands to help us access and repair most motorcycle dents.
Will PDR void my manufacturer’s warranty?
No. PDR is actually highly preferred and recommended by most vehicle manufacturers and insurance companies.
Can you repaint over vehicle damage?
No. We do not provide a paint refinish service. However, for light chips or small scratches, we can apply a factory color touch-up paint. Note that this touch-up will not deliver a perfect finish like pre-damaged condition, nor will it last a long time.
Will insurance cover my PDR repairs?
Yes. PDR is preferred by most insurance companies as a valid repair process.
Will you work with my insurance company to get approval for repair work?
We work with all major insurance companies in our local areas. However we do not accept any claims with The General Automobile Insurance Services Inc. (aka “The General”) company.
Paint Protection Film (PPF) FAQs
What is Paint Protection Film, or PPF?
Paint Protection Film, also known by its acronym “PPF” is a flexible clear polyurethane film that protects your vehicle’s paint from minor physical and chemical damage.
How long will my PPF coating last?
High quality films like Xpel have a 10 year manufacturer warranty. However, the better you care for PPF film, the longer it will last. Keeping it clean and protected with a wax or ceramic coating will extend its lifespan.
Can I cover my entire vehicle with PPF?
Yes, all smooth painted or plastic surfaces like chrome trim can be coated in PPF, even your headlights and windshields.
How do I care for my PPF after installation?
Treat the PPF the same as you do the clear coat of paint on the vehicle. Wash it with non-abrasive cleaning chemicals designed for clear-coated vehicles. You can wax or ceramic coat the film just as you would the clear coat on the vehicle. Keep things like bug splatter, bird droppings and even mud from sitting on the film for long periods of time as they can acid etch and destroy the film’s finish just as they can the clear coat on the vehicle.
Can I install PPF myself?
Anyone can attempt to install PPF films themselves. However, the cost of the film is rather expensive and it’s common for the untrained hand to improperly apply the film application. Leaving this to a trained professional is always the best investment.
Window Tint FAQs
How dark can I legally tint my windows?
Each state has different rules and regulations about the darkness value you can have on your windows, or what windows can and cannot have film applied to. Here’s the current Colorado window tint law: https://www.tinting-laws.com/colorado/
Can I tint my vehicle’s windows on my own?
You can buy and install the window film on your own. However, we recommend you let a trained professional with the skills to heat shrink and apply the film do the job. This can save from wasting materials or accidently damaging the vehicle’s exterior or interior.
Can you apply a darker tint over the factory tinted glass?
What’s the lifespan of window film?
On average, window films should last 10+ years. But this also depends on how the film was installed and how it has been cared for after installation. Discuss this in further with the installer of your choice.
