A Smarter Way To Repair


What Are Your Options For Repairing A Plastic Bumper?

Scratches, dents, and chips are all too easy to get in your plastic bumper. This damage can be a real eyesore and lower your vehicle’s resale value. If you find yourself with a damaged plastic bumper, here are some options for bumper repair.

Do-It-Yourself Bumper Repair

There are kits available for repairing your bumper yourself. These claim to be easy to use, but the process involves grinding, sanding, sculpting, and painting. If you are a skilled home mechanic or have a car that isn’t worth much anyway, this might be a good option. However, if you’re concerned about the resale value of your vehicle it’s best to let professionals at an autobody shop handle the repairs. Home repairs can get the job done, but they are often noticeable.

Replacement at an Autobody Shop

Many body shops simply replace a damaged plastic bumper instead of performing bumper repair. This gets you a great looking bumper again and maintains the vehicle’s resale value, but costs a lot of money.

Repairs at a Calgary Autobody Shop

A third option is taking your car to a Calgary autobody shop that performs bumper repairs. With their equipment and expertise, a professional autobody shop can perform sturdy repairs that preserve your car’s factory finish. This option maintains the resale value of your car, but is much more affordable than replacing the entire plastic bumper. The repair process is also quick so you don’t have to be without your vehicle for long.

If your plastic bumper suffered damage from a post, car door, rock, or other object, visit a Calgary autobody shop to find out about repairs. Although home repairs and replacement are options for dealing with a damaged bumper, usually professional repairs are the best choice. Explore your options and decide what works best for you.
