Structural Aluminum

The training and knowledge required to perform structural aluminum repairs is extremely critical in maintaining the safety integrity of a vehicle. This type of repair requires not only highly skilled technicians, but also the use of very specific tools due to the metallurgy of aluminum. The traits of aluminum can become altered in a collision and it’s important to have an expert who is able to identify when a component is compromised. It’s so important that manufacturers prohibit the sale of replacement parts to shops that have not been certified. Karosserie has been well versed and certified in aluminum repairs for decades and has dedicated work areas designated for aluminum repair only.
