Why is Aluminum Repair Different?
Once aluminum has been bent or damaged, it requires very specific tools in order to extract dents and to restore the body panel back to normal. It all really comes down to the tools and training involved to ensure the job is completed correctly. Would you use a fork to eat soup? No, it wouldn’t be very effective and you would miss out on all the best parts. Point being, we use the right tools for the job each and every time.
Aluminum doesn’t react the same as steel. For example, aluminum doesn’t react the same to heat and does not have the same kind of moldable properties that steel does. For that reason we take special care when working with aluminum. We have invested a lot of time and money into training our techs to be experts when I comes to working with aluminum.
