A few of our most common auto body shop services include but are not limited to:
Studies show that about 50 percent of vehicles suffer some kind of frame damage in a car collision. Frame damage can occur easily, even in common situations involving minor fender benders. Often, frame damage is difficult to see and can go unnoticed by insurance adjusters. The unfortunate truth is that even minor frame damage can put you, your family, your friends, and your car at risk when driving. When it goes unnoticed, it can often spell disaster for everyday drivers who might think their car is fine to drive.
When your car's frame is bent, your alignment is usually off, too, causing you to swerve and veer while driving. At best, this scenario results in unnecessary wear on your tires and, at worst, results in a car wreck. The bottom line? You need to get your car's frame inspected by a team of professional collision repair experts, even if you've only been involved in a minor accident.
At Lowcountry Paint Body & Restoration, we take a comprehensive approach to frame repair and alignment. Our highly-trained frame repair technicians use a multi-point process to diagnose and correct your frame problems by:
Chips and cracks are bad news for your car's windshield and don't just look bad - they can do serious damage when left unrepaired. Cracks and chips can quickly turn from a minor inconvenience to a safety hazard by impairing your vision. If your windshield crack is bad enough, you might even get pulled over by a police officer. Driving your vehicle with a large crack or even with an object embedded in it is a bad idea, but Lowcountry Paint Body & Restoration is here to help.
Our windshield repair technicians have years of experience repairing car windows and windshields for many types of automobile glass, including side and rear windows. If you have been involved in a collision and need new glass, we can help facilitate that process and install a new windshield without you ever lifting a finger. New glass is usually needed with serious car wrecks, and it's always best to trust a professional auto body shop in cityname, state to get the job done. Our team uses the most modern glass and adhesives on the market, so you know your windshield and windows are high-quality and ready for the road.
Whether you have a chipped windshield or need all-new glass for your car, we're here to serve you.
Out car windshield and glass repairs include:
Any kind of item or stray piece of debris can dent your car. If you've been driving for at least a few years, chances are you've parked at a grocery store and, after shopping, returned to your car to see a big, unsightly dent. Whether they're due to inclement weather or rocks on the highway, dents cause noticeable damage that only gets worse with time. One of the most common dent repair solutions is paintless dent removal - a process that removes dents in your vehicle without removing any paint.
Paintless dent removal is great because it is not invasive and is a very efficient, cost-effective way to fix car dents before they get even worse. There are no fillers or sanding involved, making this option one of the quickest ways to remove dents. At Lowcountry Paint Body & Restoration, our dent removal technicians use several tools to gently massage dents out of your car. When we're done, we'll smooth everything back into place, leaving your car looking like new.
To make matters even better, most paintless dent removal is supported by car insurance agencies, meaning you may not pay a cent out of pocket for our dent removal services.

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. – (Tuesday, March 14, 2023) – Berkeley County, in partnership with the City of Hanahan, will celebrate the completion of Railroad Avenue Extension in Hanahan with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, March 17 at 10 a.m. The event will take place in front of the Hanahan Recreation Center ballfields across from Mabeline Road in Hanahan.
This critical road project, which was managed by the S.C. Department of Transportation, has been in the works since the 1990s. The County celebrated the project’s groundbreaking in spring 2021.
Kiewit Infrastructure South constructed the project, which consisted of extending Railroad Avenue from Mabeline Road to Eagle Landing Boulevard and adding a two-lane roadway along the eastern side of the existing CSX rail line, with a sidewalk along one side of the road.
The project provides a safer connection between North and South Hanahan. Specifically, drivers will no longer have to enter Rivers Avenue and cross the railroad twice; and first responder vehicles will also have a better and safer access to those communities, overall improving emergency response times.
This project cost an estimated $20.1 million, including approximately $16 million from Berkeley County’s One-Cent Sales Tax Program—specifically from the referendum voters passed in 2014—and $4 million from federal funds.
“This road extension project, which has been decades in the making, is a gamechanger for the Hanahan community and public safety. We are thankful to Berkeley County voters for approving the County’s One-Cent Sales Tax referendum and to Congressman Henry Brown for securing federal funds to pay for this long-awaited infrastructure project. We are confident the result will be faster emergency response times and safer travel for all.” -Berkeley County Supervisor Johnny Cribb
“Thanks to the perseverance and hard work of so many who have passed the torch of this much needed project, we are finally celebrating the infrastructure connectivity of Hanahan through Railroad Avenue Extension. I am grateful for the collaboration of many different agencies to make this happen. Hanahan is now safer, transportation is easier, and quality of life is better.” -Hanahan Mayor Christie Rainwater
The City of Hanahan will also host a “Meet in the Street Block Party” event at 5:30 p.m. on Friday to commemorate the road project’s completion. There will be a food truck and other festivities. For more information, go HERE.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Three Lowcountry drainage projects were selected by the South Carolina Office of Resilience to receive more than $11 million in funding.
The projects were among 17 total projects across 12 counties that received funding from the agency’s American Rescue Plan Act Stormwater Infrastructure program.
Projects to mitigate flooding in the cities of Beaufort, Charleston and Hanahan were selected from among 76 applications received by the agency.
In Beaufort, $5.65 million was awarded towards the city’s Charles/Craven and Port Republic/Carteret drainage pipe upsizing.
The projects would increase the size of drainage pipes along each route. The Charles/Craven project would also add new pipes and inlets along Charles Street, Bay Street, Craven Street and North Street.
A drainage study released by the city in August 2022 estimated the combined cost of the projects to be approximately $6.7 million.
The city of Hanahan will get $1.16 million to go towards improvements to the city’s downtown drainage system.
Investment in the downtown area was targeted in city leaders’ Hanahan 2040 plan:
“It is through development of targeted economic policies, dedicated staffing to support existing while recruiting new businesses, economic incentive programs, regional collaboration efforts, and reinvestment in existing infrastructure, that the Town Center can have a resurgence of economic prosperity. A prosperous Town Center benefits residents, investors, proprietors and visitors.”
Charleston will get $4.6 million for its ongoing Barberry Woods project.
The Barberry Woods project is described by Charleston city leaders as an innovative design approach. The project aims to conserve natural assets and consider long term climate change impacts.
City officials said when the neighborhood was built, it blocked a stream and wetland system. The plan would redirect water through a new stream channel.
Officials, in September 2022, estimated the total cost of the project to be around $15 million.
The funds must be allocated by the end of 2024 and spent completely by the end of 2026.
A full list of projects funded across the state can be found on the agency’s website.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – South Carolina and local officials are addressing a new standard for toxic chemicals in drinking water that could soon take effect.
This week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced the proposed National Primary Drinking Water Regulations for six PFAS.
PFAS are described by the agency as “a category of manufactured chemicals that have been used in industry and consumer products since the 1940s.”
“These are compounds that make surfaces nonstick, non-staining. They repel oil, water and grease. And so that makes them very hard to break down in the environment,” explained Mike Saia, the Public Information Administrator for Charleston Water System.
According to federal officials, the chemicals can have harmful effects on health. That’s why they’re proposing to limit the chemicals in drinking water to the lowest level that can be reliably measured. For PFOA and PFOS, that is 4.0 parts per trillion. The other four levels can be found here.
On Thursday, South Carolina Department of Environmental Health and Control said they are reviewing the new rule.
“DHEC is extremely supportive of EPA establishing drinking water standards to address PFAS,” Jennifer Hughes, DHEC’s Bureau of Water Chief.
When this regulation becomes finalized, public water systems will be required to reduce their PFAS levels to meet the new standards. The move is raising concerns at Charleston Water System.
“Although we look to the EPA for health guidance, we feel that our water is completely safe for our customers,” Saia told News 2. “We do everything we can to monitor it, we stay up with all of the national trends, we read the health science that’s available out there. And these new limits, they don’t seem to match, they don’t seem to jive for us.”
Saia said he believes EPA’s proposed regulation is a political overreach that will come at a high price for customers.
“It would require us to completely overhaul our Hanahan water treatment plant and that may take five or 10 years. That may cost hundreds of millions of dollars, even upwards of a billion dollars. And that would be directly reflected in our customers’ water bills,” said Saia.
EPA said it anticipates the regulation to be finalized by the end of the year. To submit a public comment or participate in public webinars, click here.

HANAHAN, SOUTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, March 16, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Wall XD Expandable Displays Raises Over $30k on Kickstarter in 24 Hours The expandable, adaptive, and customizable display for action figures has captured the support of nearly 200 backers in 24 hours—with 26 days of Kickstarter still to go
Wall XD, the world’s first expandable, adaptive, and customizable display for action figures, has been launched on Kickstarter, at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/highschoolcreations/wall-xd-beyond-a-diorama-more-than-a-display.
Typically, dioramas are not easily available to hobbyists and collectors. “You’d need to make your own or commission a custom stand-alone piece, which does not offer too many options,” said Michael Fraysher, the artist behind High School Creations and creator of Wall XD. “This project innovates because it introduces an instant, expandable, adaptive, and customizable display for 1:12 scale action figures,” the artist said.
Designed to fit in a detolf, Wall XD is ideal for glass towers, and the design is optimized to perform visually without sacrificing space for the collector's action figures.
Outside of a glass cabinet, it can be used to turn a single display into a full set for toy photography purposes by seamlessly combining multiple Wall XDs together.
"In fact, Wall XD’s ability to infinitely expand allows you collectors to create a number of different configurations, including alleyways, street corners, storefronts, and even entire buildings, namely using the add-ons that we're introducing as stretch goals of our Kickstarter," Fraysher added.
Another feature that Wall XD introduces is how easy it is to disassemble it for storage. Another product highlight that sets Wall XD apart from others is the incorporation of the tab system that allows for a simple friction fit. This is a simple yet tough connection point that means less parts to keep track of and more time for collectors to enjoy with their figures. Two tabs on each wall allow users to connect additional walls, with an additional two tabs that connect to the base sidewalk or to build a set vertically. Both the tabs and the entire structure have been designed and made to be sturdy enough for extra expandability.
There is also a peg system expressed through a hidden brick that is pegged in when accessories are not in use, and which can be removed when accessories are attached to the wall. “In a nutshell, this creates more creative possibilities, as users can set up spectacular scenarios with multiple elements,” the crowdfunder observed.
The Wall XD campaign on Kickstarter at http://kck.st/405iK3t was launched on March 14th with a $40,000 funding goal. It is now fast approaching the $40,000 with nearly 200 backers involved, and it is offering the Wall XD display with several add-on options as stretch goals in exchange for the support from backers.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCSC) - After being reelected for another term on Tuesday, Hanahan Mayor Christie Rainwater is already preparing for the next four years.
In this year’s election, no opponents ran against Rainwater, which she says was a relief to not sit on the edge of her seat and worry about winning or not.
“I feel like the residents of the city have seen the work I’ve put in, and they want that to keep going,” she says. “They want the momentum to continue, and no one ran against me. I’m able to really continue keeping that momentum going.”
The Hanahan City Council and school board members were all reelected on Tuesday, and the mayor says will continue as a strong partnership because of the established relationships.
Similar to the rest of the Lowcountry, Hanahan continues to grow. Rainwater focused on building economic development and recreation in the area by adding two new parks over the last four years.
“Really bringing this quality of life to the residents is what we’ve been doing over the past four years and will continue to do over the next four,” she says.
As for the upcoming four years, the mayor really wants to focus on flooding concerns, more economic growth and additional housing for the community. She also mentioned that the Lowcountry Rapid Transit plans include four stops that will positively impact Hanahan.
“We are really looking at our specifically downtown area and how can we allow for housing that will work for everyone,” Rainwater says. “We have changed the ordinances over the past few years that will allow for us to build up a little higher and bring that in.”
The mayor also expressed that Hanahan has a small-town feel despite being the seventeenth-largest city in South Carolina.
“I like to say I bleed blue and orange,” she says. “Hanahan is the heart of the Lowcountry. When you look at its location, you’ve got downtown Charleston, Summerville, Mount Pleasant, West Ashley, and right in the heart, you’ll find Hanahan. The truth is, it’s not just because of its location; the people in Hanahan are so special.”
