We see damaged vehicles every day.   So for us, it is pretty much cut and dried why repairing what seems like simple cosmetic damage is actually extremely important for the long term safety and reliability of your vehicle.  Bumper repair is really a no-brainer when you consider the long-term advantages.

Aluminum Repair Has Changed the Industry.

What a difference between those auto body repair shops that just do traditional collision repair and the ones that do aluminum welding.  Until the last few years with the introduction of the 2015 Ford F150, aluminum was only used as a primary body material on limited production vehicles like Range Rovers, Jaguar XK sedans, Audi A8s, and certain Mercedes-Benz models.

How does aluminum repair differ from steel repair?

1.  A technician needs better tools and skills to reshape aluminum
2.  Aluminum conducts heat better
3.  Steel and aluminum are corrosive to each other

Aluminum is usually stronger than steel but weighs less.  Less weight means better fuel mileage, as well as better towing and payload capacities.  The Don Embry Body Shop is one of the top aluminum welding body shops in the entire Louisville area.  Trust the expertise of this 55-year old + institution to do the job right the first time.  Call The Don Embry Body Shop.  They have been there for three generations located at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville.

The Importance of Frame Straightening.

So, that moment of truth has arrived and you step out of your vehicle after a collision and scan the exterior of your car for crash-related damage.  Like most of us, you’re concerned with the scratches, dents, and other surface damage that are in plain sight.  A great auto body repair shop sees the bigger picture.

The worst of the damage may be hidden deeper and related to the frame itself.  The facts are, even small collisions like curb mishaps can cause major damage which is linked to frame repair.  If it is left untouched, a bent frame can cause even more harm to other parts of the vehicle.  Indeed, your car’s problems may only have just begun!

The great news is that The Don Embry Body Shop is all over it.  They know exactly what to look for and pay very close attention to frame straightening and repair.  It is absolutely essential that the entire process be done to perfection.  Always trust The Don Embry Body Shop for collision damage repair in the Louisville area.  They are at 8272 Dixie Highway.  Call (502) 935-1373.

More than just Auto Body Repair.

When you must take your vehicle (or have it towed) into an auto body shop in the Louisville area you expect quality work on the outside of your car.  What you may not expect is a professional team that is able to fix your ride inside and out.  Great auto body repair extends to other parts of your vehicle that may need repair as well.

Things like the power windows, the frame, the suspension, keyless entry, and door hinges may also need to be repaired or replaced.  Sometimes expert steel or aluminum welding is needed to restore your car, SUV, or pick-up to its original road-worthiness.  Anything less than that is simply unacceptable!

That is why Louisville area residents have chosen Don Embry Body Shop since the early 1960’s.  That is three generations of drivers in and around our community restoring cars to like-new condition.  When you need the best auto body repair in the Louisville area insist on Don Embry Body Shop.  Call them at (502) 935-1373 or stop by the shop at 8272 Dixie Highway.
