If your car has been in an accident, you will need to find a reliable collision repair company in Morgantown. Whether you have monitor damage or a need for more extreme repairs, you may be wondering what to expect when you take your car for repairs.

Not all types of collision repair are the same. Here are some of the most common types of collision repair:

Scratch Repair

When you have chips, scratches, or nicks in your paint, they are not only an eyesore, but they also put your car at ricks of rusting or corroding. Without paint there to protect the body of the car, it is exposed to salt, water, and other elements that can cause damage.

Our team can repair your scratched paint by applying a primer and a sealant to the area that is damaged. We will then apply a base coat and a clear polyurethane finish. The area will then be polished.
For less severe scratches, we can clear off the damaged coat of paint, leveling it off with the underlying layers of paint, and then buff out the area to smooth it.

Glass Repair

During certain collisions, the glass in your vehicles, such as the windshield, windows, light bulbs, and mirrors, can become damaged. When it comes to cracks in your windshield, some cracks can be repaired with an adhesive injected into the crack. If needed, our team can replace your windshield, windows, lightbulbs, and more with top-quality parts.

Body Filler and Severe Damage Repairs

In many cases, a collision causes more than a scratch or dent in your paint job. When it comes to more serious damage, we will need to inspect the car for structural damage and replace any damaged parts.
For more serious dents, we may need to use body filler to fix the issue. This material will fill in the dent and is then smoothed over. It is then painted once it has dried. Once we’ve installed your replacement parts, we will paint, polish, and detail the damaged area to make it look good as new.

Dent Repair

For minor collision, you may experience a dent that leaves the paint job intact. In this case, our collision repair specialists should be able to remove the dent without disturbing the car’s paint job.

Bumper Repair

In some collisions, your bumper takes most of the impact. This may spare damage to your vehicle, but the bumper may be left in disarray. If the bumper can be repaired, we will reshape the bumper and then prime, seal, and refinish it to make it look brand new.

However, if the bumper is damaged beyond repair, your can trust our collision experts to replace it with a new, top-quality bumper.
