Should I Go with Bumper Repair or Replacement?

Here’s how you can tell if it’s time to have your bumper replaced. Miracle Body and Paint in San Antonio Texas also lists down things you should expect during bumper replacement.

Should I have my bumper repaired or replaced?

Repairing or replacing your bumper will depend on how much damage it has incurred.  Car damage could either be a dent, scratch or crack. Repairing minor scratches or chips is considered relatively easy. Minor dents can be pushed out if there is no other damage visible.

You may consider replacing your bumper if the crack or dent is big. The bumper replacement process involves removing the old bumper, attaching a new one and repainting the affected area to match the rest of the car’s paint color.

The auto collision repair center will do a thorough assessment in order to determine the right service. After determining the type or service your car requires, the necessary body work is performed which may include straightening if necessary, to automotive painting, fender reconstruction and any internal damage repair.
