Outstanding paint and body shop. Justin is very professional at handling the entire job, Reed did an exceptional panel/component replacement and Jeff is an expert at painting. Bobby took the time to come talk to me as I was checking out his staff's five star work. In addition, they are a certified Ford repair center. Excellent experience.

Performance Finishes
My vehicle was in the possession of Performance Finishes during the historic Louisiana flooding in August and I had received word that the area was severely flooded. I called after the flooding asking if the facilities were flooded and the employee said some equipment and machinery got wet, but no cars. I received my car and everything seemed fine but after a few days it started to smell like mildew. I had done nothing to my car, but I finally took it to a detail shop when I discovered puddles of water under my mats on every carpet surface to inquire as to why this would be so. He pulled up the carpet to show me water sitting in the bed of my car that could've only come from flooding which probably wasn't noticeable at first when you clean the carpets but because water was sitting beneath the carpets, it eventually started to smell horrible to the point where I couldn't enter my car without my eyes watering and sneezing.I returned to Performance Finishes where they denied it until the end and told me they could do nothing for me except a running water test to see if there were in cracks near the rear right door where my repairs were made. The test reveals no cracks, so it's basically my work against everyone in their company's word denying that my vehicle was flooded.So they told me they could do nothing for me.The fact that this is the way they handled this situation, whether it be because I'm a young, female or otherwise, is sad and humiliating on their behalf. I did not have the personal time to get the law involved, so I was forced to file a flood insurance claim on my behalf to get this issue resolved.I want everyone to be aware of their malpractice because this was one of the worst experiences I've ever had with a repair shop that should not have been the case. Hopefully light is shed on this situation of which I still have documented proof, but if not, hopefully you'll consider this before you give your valued business to Performance Finishes.

I had my daughter's car repaired at Kenneth's after it was hit by another car in a side impact. The repair work was done extremely well. I found Kenneth to be extremely polite and obliging. No complaints.

How this guy managed to keep an A+ rating with the BBB is beyond me. I was recomended by a family friend and he totally messed up my truck. The bed and decals and lights are so out of allighnment. Nothing is straight on the back end of it. When I brought this to his attention he threw a fit and stomped off. Go somewhere else.
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.
