Why Get Your Bumper Fixed?
Typically, bumpers are the first to absorb contact when involved in an accident. This is why providing appropriate and accurate bumper repair is important. At Maj-Estic Collision we follow all the guidelines to ensure that your bumper is repaired to manufacturer specifications, and offer a lifetime guarantee on all our work.
Plastic Bumper Repair
Today’s models feature plastic bumpers, which can often be repaired in a timely manner. Plastic bumpers usually exist in two types of variations; thermoplastic and thermoset.
Thermoplastic bumpers are constructed by melting small pieces of plastic pellets and then injecting the plastic into a bumper mold. This form of bumper construction tends to be more easy to use as it is flexible, cost-effective, and recyclable. For this reason, many of the bumpers on the road today are made this way.
Thermoset bumpers are constructed by injecting two different polymers together into a mold. Bumpers made this way tend to be more durable, but also more intensive to repair correctly.
Replace vs. Repair: What's The Difference?
There is a cost difference between replacing and repairing a bumper. To keep you safe all severely damaged bumpers will always be replaced. Repairing a bumper typically cuts down on costs by about 40 percent no matter the material of the bumper or the make and model of the vehicle. In some instances the repair cost will be less than your deductible allowing you to handle your repairs in cash. However, when the claim is in your favor we will work directly with your insurance company for the best possible solution.
