Plastic Bumper Repair

Plastic Bumper Repair

Car Pool Detail Helps Your Bumper Bounce Back…

That’s what bumpers are designed for… to protect the important parts of your car in low-impact collisions and to bounce you back from that light pole or the rear-end of another car; but all bumpers are not created equal. Most car bumpers are made of plastic, covered and reinforced by steel, fiberglass, plastic, aluminium, thermoplastic, or polypropylene foam, and let’s face it – they are not indestructible!

Repair types

Bumper scuff repair: looks factory-new!

Car Pool Detail can either polish out the damage if it isn’t too deep; or sand, prime, repaint and clear coat scuffs on the corners of your plastic bumper in 48 hours or less. We color-match the paint according to your manufacturer’s formula code and blend our paint to match your car’s finish, even if it has faded or changed over time. No one but an automotive technician will be able to see the repair!

Bumper crack and split repair

Car Pool Detail repairs cracks and splits (apart from the edges or contours where it cannot be reshaped) by removing the bumper; plastic welding it from front and back; and filling, priming, and painting it; all in 48 hours or less, depending on the severity of the damage. For convenience, you can drop off your car the evening prior to your appointment.

Frequently asked questions.

How long does a bumper repair take?

Bumper repair can take up to 48 hours, depending on the severity of the damage.

Do I need to wait while my bumper cures?

Your bumper is cured when you leave our shop. We use an infrared lamp to cure your clear coat as our last repair step.

How do I get an estimate?

The best way to get an estimate is to come by our shop so we can assess the damage. We can usually have a quote in about 10 minutes.

If I have paint issues, will the color match?

Yes. We mix our paint based on the code and formula provided by your car manufacturer. When necessary, we blend and tint our paint to match your car’s finish, even if it has faded or changed with time.

Will there be any evidence of bumper damage once it is fixed?

No. Only a body or paint technician looking closely at the damage could detect a bumper repair.

How Soon Can I Wash My Vehicle?

You can hand wash your vehicle within a couple days but you must wait at least 30 days before going through a mechanized wash.

How Soon Can I Wax My Vehicle?

You should wait at least 60 days before you can wax your vehicle, this allows solvents to fully evaporate from the paint.

Can I drop off my car the night before my appointment?

Yes. For your convenience, you can drop off your car the evening before your appointment or early in the morning on your way to work. Usually, we can arrange to meet you after hours to receive your car. We also have a Key Drop for customers with appointments.
