Collision Repair Estimates in Parkville
Walking into a body shop without knowing how to read a repair estimate can be difficult. We want you to know exactly what is involved in the repair process. To that end, we take the time to review the common elements of a collision repair estimate to help you understand how the repairs will take place. Knowing what the estimate will be and what we do to take care of your car puts most of our customers at ease right away. We don’t mind answering questions or explaining what we think needs to be done.
Body Work vs Paint Work
First, let’s define not only the difference between body and paintwork but where one stops and the other begins. Bodywork ends at the point where you pick up your sander or sandpaper to begin feathering the paint for primer. In other words, you’ve removed the dents, filled the surface irregularities with bondo, or whatever the product in use is, and are ready to apply primer.
First, we must remove the scratches and also make the step from the metal to the surface of the old paint a smooth transition (feathering ). This is where the bodywork stops and the paintwork begins. With this in mind, you’ll know where to look on this site for information, tools, and materials that can help you with the area of your car that needs attention at this time. If you’re not sure, call us and bring your car in. The more you know, the better decision you will make.
collision repair Painting
We repair the car for a factory-style paint finish and duplicate the steps originally taken by the manufacturer. First, we remove all exterior parts that are not to be painted, such as trim, moldings, headlamps, tail lamps, and nameplates. This exposes the maximum amount of surface area on your vehicle, ensuring that every edge, seam, and joint gets painted properly.
The repaired areas are then primed and block-sanded, and adjoining areas are sanded as well to provide a completely smooth, level, seamless surface for the paint to be applied to. Finally, the vehicle is masked and completely covered to protect against “over-spray” as it enters the paint booth for refinishing.
