Dents and Scratches
Dents and scratches are two of the most common types of damage that can occur to your car, and most everyone will have to deal with them at some point during their time as a driver. While they are annoying, they luckily aren’t that difficult to fix. Auto repair shops can easily take care of these damages and make your car look as good as new! Below are some of the processes that auto repair shops will use to fix dents and scratches on cars.
If you own a car, it is very likely that eventually, you will need a paint repair. At some point, you will get a scratch, ding, or chip that needs to be fixed, and painting is the way to go when this happens. It’s important to get these repairs done when something happens to your car because if the scratch is deep enough it can leave the metal of your car exposed which can lead to corrosion and rust. This creates a much bigger problem that can be prevented with a simple paint job. The most common paint used by factories on vehicles is clear-coated catalyzed enamel. Auto body shops have the ability to paint match your vehicle so the fix will look seamless.
Touchup Paint to Repair Scratches
Touchup painting is the best type to use when you have minor scratches on the body of your car. Lacquer paint is what is most commonly used by auto repair shops and DIY touchup paint jobs to cover those pesky scratches. The auto repair shop will use the VIN number of your vehicle to find the color code that they need to match for the repair.
Airbrushing to Repair Scratches
Airbrushing is a quick way to fix a scratch on your vehicle. Like touchup paint, it is a short-term fix, but it gets the job done. It is most commonly used to restore used cars to their best-looking states, but it is another inexpensive alternative to touch-up painting which will cover any scratches or chips that are found on the body of your vehicle.
Paintless Dent Repair
Paintless Dent Repair is a good option to repair dents in your car when the paint has not been damaged too badly. This process uses less time and fewer resources than other dent removal methods because it doesn’t require you to repaint your entire vehicle. Because of this, it is also typically less expensive than other dent removal methods. Newer car models tend to work better with this process than older models; however, the process is dependent on the condition of the metal. This is the preferred method of dent removal for clients and for auto repair shops because of the short amount of time it takes to complete and the ease of the repair.
Dents and scratches are annoying to deal with, but ultimately, they are inevitable. Luckily, there are some pretty quick fixes to get your vehicle back into shape. Trust ProCare Collision Center to take care of these damages and make your car look as good as new!
