Everything you need to know about Rust Repair

Car rust repair is one of the most expensive forms of car bodywork repair. Ca rust occurs when there's paint damage significant enough that it has reached so deep into the panel that it has exposed the iron metal of the car beneath the paint, exposing it directly to oxygen and water. This type of damage is not only an eyesore but can spread quickly across the vehicle once it starts. To prevent the spread of rust damage it's important to look for rust repair promptly when you first notice rust on your vehicle.

Rust repair is most often required on the wheel wells and bumpers of cars as it can easily collect there. Rust on the body of the vehicle is often due to extensive sun damage on existing dents, scratches or dings that cause the already damaged paint to bubble and peel and eventually expose the metal beneath.

Common Questions and Answers About Rust Repair

When should I be careful of rust damage?

In short, always. Car rust damage can spread quickly and diminish the strength of the metal on your vehicle.

Where is rust damage common on a vehicle?

Wheel wells and bumpers tend to be the places where rust collects - even on otherwise clean vehicles.

How can I avoid getting rust on my vehicle?

Wash your vehicle regularly. Dirt, debris, and salt don’t cause rust on their own, however, they can cause damage to the paint, which when bad enough can expose the metal beneath to allow rust to be created. If you have paint scratches, dents or dings then we recommend you get these repaired within a short period of time to avoid any rust developing.
