Your Source For Aluminum Body Repair
Traditional collision repair is focused on steel, which was the major player in car manufacturing. Aluminum has become more popular in recent years. Many more vehicles need aluminum body auto body repair. Unfortunately, they cannot go to just any body shop. Aluminum and steel do not react well together. A completely different set of tools and separate work space is needed because even steel dust will corrode aluminum. This requires an investment in tools and an extra area for aluminum body repairs. In addition to the tools and space, working with the metal requires additional training. Aluminum can’t be reshaped back to its original state as easily as steel, and welding it more difficult. It takes skills, and the right equipment, to fix dents and dings properly. Come to Cline Collision with your aluminum body vehicle for an auto body shop in Santa Rosa with the facility, tools, and skilled auto technicians to restore your car or truck to factory standards.
Why do car manufacturers use aluminum if it is so difficult to repair? This metal is just as strong, if not stronger, as steel, but weighs considerably less. Less weight equates to better fuel mileage. Cline Collision sees the future in aluminum and other lightweight materials as government fuel economy requirement increase.
