Frequently Asked Questions

Paintless Dent Repair FAQs

What is Paintless Dent Repair or PDR?

Paintless Dent Repair (also known as PDR) is the technique of gently massaging the metal surface from the back side of the dented panel to remove the damage back to a pre-loss condition. This process allows for the repairs to be done in most cases without the need to repaint or replace the damaged panels. The process of PDR is much safer and faster than the conventional auto body repair method.

Do you provide mobile dent repair services?

Yes, we do offer mobile services. On dent repairs of $150-$300 within 20 miles of our shop location. Most dent repairs greater than $300 will need to be repaired in the shop due to length of time and possible special techniques and tools required to complete the repair.

What are the benefits of using PDR vs. conventional repair?

1. Faster repair process saves you time. 2. In most cases, PDR can be more cost-effective than conventional repair. 3. PDR is a much less invasive repair to the vehicle. 4. PDR can help to save or maintain your factory seals, corrosion protection and paint finish. 5. PDR most of the time will not show up on a CARFAX report unless an insurance claim is filed.

Can you repair dents 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:

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?

Yes, factory tinted glass is a dyed 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.
