Do Not Let Dents Get You Down

Ithaca collision repair

Life happens and sometimes it happens to our vehicles through no fault of our own. The damages can be major such as from a significant collision with another vehicle, immovable object, or a wild animal.  Minor damages are abundant in causes. Your vehicle can sustain minor damages in your own garage, in a parking lot, or as you drive along and something falls onto your vehicle..never mind the potential of hail and other weather-related situations.

Considering to Repair Light Scratches

Vehicle owners are often tempted to ignore a scratch on their vehicle. Those scratches can be from scraping your vehicle on low hanging branches or even slipping with the key onto the paint. Believe us, paint scratches are not innocent in any way. It’s hard to decide which direction to go.

Ithaca collision repairFirst of all, if it’s a light scratch, there has been damage done to the paint which opens up the sealant on the paint to allow weather and salt to penetrate. We can address those light scratches immediately and buff them out and protect the paint right away.

Deeper scratches are simply and grand opening sign for rust to get started. What was once a buff and paint (and we have the exact match paint for your car or truck) becomes a deeper job requiring we take off more paint and down deeper to the metal body part. The goal here is to clear off all rust that has set in, repair any deeper rust that has attacked the metal, prime the surfaces, rematch the paint and seal. Just we’re dealing with a larger area and thus your cost goes up.
