Body and Paint Shop Services
Auto body work has more than one meaning these days because technology has come so far in recent years. There used to be one basic approach to vehicle dent repair, for example, which meant filling the dent with putty, sanding it, buffing it, and repainting. But now we have paintless dent repair (PDR), which is a process of coaxing the dent back into its original shape without damaging the paint—a big time and money saver for you. We used to replace every damaged windshield, but now we have techniques for filling small chips and cracks with a high-tech epoxy that matches the original optical quality of the windshield. For more serious vehicle body damage, we still rely on traditional methods of filling, painting, frame repair and engine part replacement, but the equipment we use has improved and the paints we apply are eco-friendly. So nowadays, when we talk about body and paint shop services, it can mean anything from fast, low-cost repairs to more sophisticated techniques that bring a badly damaged car or truck back to beautiful condition.
We’ve also invested in specialized equipment to work on new aluminum vehicle bodies, which are emerging from several manufacturers. Aluminum is, pound-per-pound, stronger than steel, so it’s great for towing applications, and its lightness improves fuel efficiency. But working aluminum is much more difficult than working steel. It requires different tools and longs hours of specialized training and practice. If you have one of these cool, new vehicles, Auto Craft has you covered.
On our Services pages we explain the processes we use to beautify vehicles, their advantages, and whether they apply to the type of vehicle damage you have. There’s additional information on our auto shop blog, as well as tips on safe driving technique, to help you avoid needing our services at all.
