At this time of year it’s important to start thinking about replacing your all-season tires to winter tires. You’re probably thinking “didn’t he just say all-season tires?” Yes I did. The thing is all-season tires are built to handle a variety of road conditions – dry roads, wet roads, and in many cases, light snow. Winter tires are built specifically to perform in winter conditions like low temperatures, ice, slush, and snow. The tread compound of all-season tires can harden in low temperatures, so there’s less traction between the road and your tires. But winter tires use special rubber compounds that stay pliable in the cold, giving them better grip and improved braking, even in extreme condit...Read more

We may not be in full on winter driving season yet but its coming and we need to get into winter driving mode. As anyone who’s lived through Saskatchewan winters knows, winter driving can be pretty treacherous at times. We’ve all driven on icy snowy roads and we cope quite well on them. The problem is that we tend to forget just how quickly we can get into trouble on snow and ice and we end up in the ditch or in an accident. Two of the best precautions we can take are installing winter tires and slowing our traveling speed. Even with the right tires and slower speeds your car will react differently to the mix of road surfaces found in winter. To help you with the mix of icy and dry road conditions your car may have features l...Read more

At Advantage Collision in Saskatoon we offer in-house Paintless Dent Repair also known as PDR. PDR is a type of auto body repair that allows us to repair damage without disturbing the paint on your vehicle. We use this type of auto body repair primarily for Hail Damage, Door Dents and certain other dents where the paint has not cracked or has been scratched away. The advantage to a PDR repair is the speed in which the job can be done and also the reduced cost of not having to paint the repair. For instance, a vehicle with serious hail damage covering most of the car may take two weeks or more to repair and paint yet with PDR that same job may take two or three days and retains the OEM Factory paint. PDR is faster and cheaper than convent...Read more

The Auto Body Repair Industry has changed drastically in the last 25 years. One of the areas that has seen the biggest change has been in Car Paint technology. We’ve gone from using lacquer paints to acrylic enamels to acrylic urethanes to waterborne paints and Low VOC (volatile organic compounds) clear coats etc. Advantage Collision has kept up with the pace of that change and we are proud to be using Glasurit 90 Line waterborne paint from BASF.
Waterborne paints like Glasurit 90 Line are much more environmentally friendly than the old solvent-borne paints. The contaminants to air and water are greatly reduced with this new technology. Along with being better for the world we live in, 90 Line is also a great looking and durable pa...Read more
