How We Handle Different Types of Car Damage After an Accident

Accidents happen, and when they do, the type of damage your vehicle sustains can vary widely. In our 16 years of operating in Orlando, we've seen it all—from minor scratches that barely nick the paint to major collisions that require extensive structural repair. Understanding the specific type of damage is the first step in our comprehensive repair process. At our certified collision repair center, we approach each vehicle with a tailor-made plan designed to address and rectify every type of damage, ensuring your car returns to a state of optimum safety and functionality.

Our experienced technicians are skilled in the latest repair techniques and equipped with state-of-the-art tools. We treat minor damages with the same precision and attention to detail as we do major restorations because we know that every repair contributes to the safety and longevity of your vehicle. Our commitment to excellence and safety is unwavering, as we strive to provide the best possible service and results for every car that comes into our shop. It’s not just about fixing cars; it’s about restoring your peace of mind on the road.

Types of Car Damage We Commonly See After an Accident

Driving through Orlando's bustling streets, your vehicle is prone to various types of damage from accidents. At our shop, we encounter a wide array of damages. Some of the most common are bumper scrapes, which occur during low-speed collisions or when parking in tight spots. We also see a lot of cracked windshields from flying debris on highways. Another frequent issue is side panel dents, often resulting from doors being opened into another parked car or from small objects striking the vehicle. Understanding these common damages helps us prepare and equip our shop to handle these frequent concerns promptly and efficiently.

Our Approach to Repairing Minor Scratches and Dents

When it comes to minor scratches and dents, our approach is detailed and methodical to ensure a flawless finish. First, we assess the extent of the scratch or dent. If the scratch is shallow and hasn't penetrated the paint layer, we often use a rubbing compound to buff out the scratch, restoring the surface to its original condition. For deeper scratches that reach the primer or metal, we apply a matching paint using a small brush or spray, blending it seamlessly with the surrounding area.

Dents that do not damage the paint can be treated with paintless dent repair (PDR), an innovative technique that involves massaging the dented metal back into place from the underside. This method preserves the original paint and is cost-effective. However, for dents with paint damage, we fill the dent, sand it smooth, and repaint the area to match the rest of the vehicle. Our team takes great care to ensure that each repair meets our high standards, helping to maintain the look and value of your vehicle.

How We Restore Major Structural Damage in Vehicles

Restoring major structural damage requires expertise and precision to ensure that your vehicle looks good and is safe to drive. When a car comes into our shop with severe structural damage, our first step is an exhaustive inspection to assess the integrity of the frame and underlying structures, which are crucial for the safety of the vehicle. We meticulously realign the vehicle's framework to its original specifications using advanced frame straightening technology and measurement systems. This procedure is critical as even a slight misalignment can affect the car's handling and tire wear, potentially leading to further safety issues.

Post realignment, we replace any severely damaged structural components with high-quality replacements, often sourced directly from the manufacturer, to guarantee compatibility and performance. Throughout this process, we ensure that every replaced part meets our high standards of safety and durability. Our skilled technicians handle each step with care, from welding new components to applying corrosion protection measures, thereby restoring the structural integrity of your car.

Final Checks and Safety Verifications Before Your Car Leaves Our Shop

Before a vehicle leaves our shop, it undergoes a series of final checks and safety verifications to ensure that every repair meets our rigorous standards. This comprehensive review process includes a detailed inspection of the electrical systems, fluid levels, and all mechanical components impacted by the collision. We ensure that everything from the headlights to the braking system is functioning correctly and safely.

Each vehicle is also taken for a test drive to monitor its performance and ensure that everything operates as expected under real-world driving conditions. This step is vital for detecting any issues that might not be apparent while the car is stationary. Throughout these final checks, our technicians use a checklist specific to the model and make of the vehicle, ensuring that no detail is overlooked. Our promise is that your car won’t just look great but will be safe and reliable for the roads ahead.

What Our Clients Say

Edward C.
My car needed paint correction and ceramic coating. I did my research and went to Color Recon as my previous two cars have been painted by them. Robert and Juan gave me three levels of paint correction and let me choose the price I wanted to pay. My car is black with years of swirls, halos and “spider webs”. I also went with the latest coating technology called graphene. I am very happy with the results
Hello Edward, We can't thank you enough for being a loyal customer. So glad you are happy with the results, and look forward to continued service with you for many years to come. We enjoyed having you, come by anytime.
