Aluminum Repair
Our Expert Process

Aluminum is a lightweight and strong material that is commonly used in modern vehicles, but it requires specific tools, equipment, and techniques to repair The process of aluminum repair typically involves the following steps:

  1. Vehicle Evaluation:
    The initial step in aluminum repair involves a thorough evaluation of the vehicle’s damage to determine the most suitable repair method, often using specialized equipment like ultrasound or x-ray machines to detect hidden issues.
  2. Disassembly:
    Following the evaluation, damaged components are disassembled from the vehicle. This process may require removing interior elements or other parts to access the affected area.
  3. Straightening:
    When aluminum panels or frames are bent or distorted, precise straightening techniques and specialized tools, including hydraulic presses or heat applications, are employed to restore their original shape.
  4. Welding:
    In cases where aluminum panels or frames are cracked or broken, welding techniques come into play. The repair necessitates specialized equipment, welding rods, shielding gases, and precise temperature control to ensure a durable and reliable fix.
  5. Finishing:
    After welding and straightening, the repaired area is meticulously sanded, primed, and painted to match the vehicle’s overall appearance. The chosen paint and finish must be formulated for use on aluminum surfaces to guarantee a lasting and resilient repair.

Aluminum repair is a specialized area of auto body repair that involves repairing vehicles that have aluminum body panels, frames, or structural components.

On 6/21/2024, my husband went to Inetwork Auto Collision seeking advice for a severe paint overspray on his 2023 Ford F150 truck.The truck is a two toned blue over gray Ford F150. The overspray was a white latex paint. The parts manager Kyle Brantley offered his professional advice and just as my husband was about to leave the lot, Kyle stopped him and offered to assist him in removing the most severe paint overspray from the body of the vehicle. My husband attempted to pay for the service but he was not charged a fee. My husband appreciated the professionalism and urgency they displayed in his time of need.We highly recommend Inetwork Auto Collision. Thank you for all your hard work.

Inetwork Auto Collision was amazing! They helped us repair big dents in our car and made it look brand new. They were extremely patient as we decided between paying out of pocket or using insurance. They worked very well when we went with insurance and kept us abreast of the work as it was happening. Highly recommend!

I could not have anything better to say about my experience! Johnny & the crew at iNetwork are SO great! I had consistent communication while my car was being worked on, they answered all of my questions regarding insurance, and made me feel so comfortable. Truly they went above and beyond! They even vaccumed & washed my car - I got it back better than expected! Worth the drive from Charlotte 🙂

Great experience with iNetwork Auto Collision. They repaired my Audi and the job they did was truly outstanding. They really went above and beyond to get our car back to where it was before the accident. The staff are very friendly and professional, and the job was completed on time. I will recommend them to anyone I know who is in need of repairs and will be coming back to them for all our future repairs.

You have a Choice

Your insurance company may try to steer you towards one of their preferred body shops, making you feel like you have no choice in where your vehicle is repaired. However, it’s essential to know that by law, you have the right to select any repair facility you prefer. Resist the temptation to succumb to this tactic; it’s called steering and is illegal. Many insurance companies employ borderline illegal …tactics to save money, potentially compromising the quality of your vehicle’s repairs. The danger lies in compromised repairs, either by cutting corners or using cheap aftermarket parts, ultimately shortchanging the consumer. There’s no substitute for a proper repair. Instead, opt for a reputable body shop committed to high standards and quality repairs. At iNetwork Auto Collision, we strictly adhere to OEM procedures, ensuring your vehicle is restored to its original form according to the manufacturer’s exacting standards.
