Kostka Auto Repair
have been in several wrecks in the last few years, and everytime I have went to Kotska Auto Repair. The first time I was in a wreck the owner, David Kostka was at the site right away, he followed me to the school to drop off my daughter and assisted me each step of the way. My Honda was repaired and looked better after his shop touched it then it did before it went in. Another time he went out of his way to come and unlock me out of my rental not once but twice in the same day. Again my car looked better coming out then going in. He has always gone above and beyond and body shop I have ever used. in my last wreck, David, drove his wrecker across town to come and get me from the wreck site. What owner of what company do you know that would do this for their customer? This shop is very personable and always answer the phone and/or call me back in a timely manner with a friendly attitude. I never have had one complaint on using them the 3 times I have already used them and I would recommend any of my family and friends to them. Great place to take your car.

Kostka Auto Repair
The owner really made sure I was satisfied after I got work done after an accident I was in. When I came to pick up my car the first time they noticed an issue with a part they replaced ( not new because of the cost ). They then made sure to call the insurance company and get new ones this time around. Everything was fine after that and the car looks beautiful. Better than before. The ladies in the front are also very nice. I would definitely recommend this body shop if you like dealing with honest, professional people. They really make sure you are happy before leaving and I guarantee you wont be disappointed with their work.
Tips & Advices
Using a variety of tools and processes, many of which require specialized training, auto body mechanics primarily repair cosmetic and structural damage to vehicles after accidents occur. They can also enhance a vehicle’s appearance and performance by replacing and adding new parts to a vehicle’s body.
This depends on the severity of the work that needs to be done. Something such as paintless dent repair for a few small dents can take an hour. Whereas auto body repairs for damages caused by a major accident can take multiple days to correct.
All auto body parts can be repaired but there is a threshold for the level of repairs possible. Parts can be damaged beyond repair and would need to be wholly replaced.
Auto body parts can be made from a wide variety of materials, usually based on what the part’s purpose is. Vehicle frames body panels, bumpers, roof racks, and other items that need to be strong and durable are usually constructed from steel, which is known for its durability and resistance to rust and high temperatures. But aluminum is quickly becoming a popular material of construction due to its lightweight yet durable nature. Body kits and other aftermarket parts like spoilers and hoods can be constructed from one form of plastic or another.
Yes, the vast majority of car makes and models have aftermarket parts available for many of their components. But higher-end vehicles typically have less aftermarket parts available since they often use specialized materials and manufacturing processes that are difficult to duplicate for many aftermarket manufacturers.
