Sometimes the vinyl can be shrunk back into place by heating it with a hot air gun, but often the damaged area needs to be cut away and the hole filled with a special vinyl filler.

The repaired vinyl is coated with textured paint

after the area is filled, it is sprayed with a textured paint (above) which mimics the original finish of the vinyl.

The finished vinyl repair

The final stage of the vinyl repair process is to match the colour and re spray the area.
