Possible Paint Damage
One of the issues we’ve seen with DIY dent repair attempts, is paint damage. Tools that use suction to remove dents may stick to the car, causing damage to the paint. Other tools, if not used properly, may crack or chip the paint. Now a dent that could have originally been fixed quickly by a PDR technician, must be sanded, buffed, and painted, which is a much longer and more expensive process. All in all, any damage to the paint of a vehicle increases the cost of repair, even if it is just a minor touch up.
