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.

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.

ROSEMONT, Ill. - Two Fighting Illini women's golfers were recognized by the Big Ten Conference on Wednesday (Aug. 31) as graduate student Crystal Wang and junior Isabel Sy were named 2022-23 Preseason Honorees.
The pair return to Illinois after helping the team to a fifth-place finish at the Big Ten Championships and a berth at the NCAA Regionals to finish the season.
Crystal Wang led the team in seven tournaments as top Illini finisher last season, including final three tournaments of the season. She registered eight top-15 finishes: The Landfall Tradition (3rd), ICON Invitational (T-3rd), Lady Buckeye Invitational (T-5th), Big Ten Championships (T-6th), Wolverine Invitational (T-8th), Illini Women's Invitational (T-13th), Blessings Collegiate Invitational (T-14th), NCAA Tallahassee Regional (T-14th). Her performances earned a Big Ten Conference Women's Golfer of the Week honor after equaling a season-best third place finish at the ICON Invitational (Feb. 21-22, 2022) and carding the lowest 54-hole tournament total in program history with a 13-under par 203, highlighted by an eight-under par 64 in her final round, which also marked the lowest single round score in program history. The senior led the field with 18 birdies in the tournament. Wang was named to the All-Championship Team after finishing in a tie for sixth place at the Big Ten Championships (Apr. 22-24, 2022) with a two-over tournament total of 215, including a five-under 66 in her second round. The Diamond Bar, Calif., native was named Big Ten Conference Women's Golfer of the Week after registering her highest finish of the season with a third place showing at The Landfall Tradition (Oct. 29-31, 2021) with a tournament total of four-under par 212 that included a four-under 68 score. She also led all players with 17 birdies in the tournament.
Isabel Sy, a San Gabriel, Calif., native, is coming off a sophomore season where she ranked second on the team with eight rounds under par. Sy posted six Top-20 finishes, including five in the spring: Briar's Creek Invitational (T-8th), Schooner Fall Classic (T-11th), Columbia Classic (T-12th), Lady Buckeye Invitational (T-12th), Clemson Invitational (T-15th), Big Ten Championships (T-17th). She equaled her career best finish to tie for eighth place at the Briar's Creek Invitational (Mar. 14-15, 2022) with an even-par 216 tournament total. Sy turned in her career low round with a five-under 67 in her final round at the ICON Invitational (Feb. 21-22, 2022) and finished tied for 11th at the Schooner Fall Classic with a 2-over 212 total. In her debut season in the Orange and Blue, Sy recorded a 75.19 scoring average, which ranked third-best on the team. She collected a Top-10 finish at the Moon Golf Invitational (8th) and posted a then career-best single round score of 68.
The Illini open the 2022-23 schedule on Sept. 12-13 when they travel to Hanahan, S.C., for the Cougar Classic at Yeamans Hall Club, hosted by the College of Charleston.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCSC) - One Hanahan resident is doing all he can to save his Palmetto tree after receiving a notice from Dominion Energy that it’s been scheduled to be cut down.
Jay Mullis says after returning home recently he found his tree marked with an “X” and a note in his driveway from Dominion stating the condition of his tree warrants action by the company.
The Mullis family has lived in this home since December of 2019, and they say the palmetto is the most important piece of their front lawn.
Mullis contacted a Dominion representative and shared his concern about the sudden notice that the tree was a threat and was looking to find a mutually beneficial compromise.
Dominion Energy said the tree has made contact with their energized distribution conductors and has been identified as hazardous.
After being told there wasn’t anything the company could do to save the tree, Mullis took it into his own hands. He has since trimmed it in hopes that it will no longer pose a threat momentarily and can give him time to move the tree on his own dime.
Dominion Energy spokesman Paul Fischer warned that customers should never hire a private contractor to work near power lines or attempt to do the work themselves.
“Untrained individuals should not attempt to trim trees near overhead lines for risk of serious or fatal injury,” he said. “Only qualified utility line clearance professionals or contractors who meet OSHA qualifications are legally permitted to work within 10 feet of power lines, or work on a tree that has branches within 10 feet of power lines.”
“I think it’s important that we start working together on these issues, it’s a piece of me that we cut and the tree I think will be fine and hope that they just let me move it back 10 feet,” Mullis says.
To purchase a new tree would cost thousands and Mullis says it would take years to grow to the size of his current one. He says all he’s looking for is a chance to work with Dominion to save his tree.
Dominion says customers with concerns regarding trees on or near their property should call (800) 251-7234.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCIV) — Hanahan wants to expand.
The city of Hanahan has developed a master plan to revitalize its town center and bring more businesses to the area.
Kristen O'Neill is a part owner of Theory Collective in Hanahan. The hair salon opened about a year ago.
"Our team is growing. It's great. We offer more services and see more clients," said O'Neill.
O’Neill said she is happy the city is working to bring in more businesses. She thinks more storefronts could mean more traffic at the salon.
"I think it would be great, I mean, especially on Yeamans Hall Road, there is not a whole lot. There's gas stations. It would be great to get a bite to eat up the road," said O'Neill.
She thinks it would be great to work with new businesses.
"We love partnering with local businesses. We have done it in the past and we will do it in the future. However we can support local businesses, we will," said O'Neill.
Mayor Christie Rainwater says there are things that are missing from the city.
"The truth is, we are missing quality businesses, restaurants, boutiques. That’s something people want to see come in. They don’t want to have to go to North Charleston or a neighboring city to go to the doctor," said Mayor Rainwater.
She wants to know what residents see for the future of the town center.
The plan is something they can use to present to those who are interested in coming to the area.
"It really gives us resources that we need to present to people who would like to bring their development or business to Hanahan, and say this is where it may fit best," said the mayor.
The city wants to continue hearing from residents. They have a survey on their website at cityofhanahan.com.
"If you have a dream inside of you and you want to bring it to the downtown of Hanahan, we would love to work with you to do that," said Rainwater.
More than 30 high school baseball teams from multiple states will compete for titles in the 52nd annual Hanahan Invitational Tournament set for April 11-14.The tournament has two divisions named for former Hanahan High Hawks baseball coaches, Tom Hatfield and Bill Steadman. Hatfield started the HIT in 1970 as a way to get a few local teams together for games during spring break.

More than 30 high school baseball teams from multiple states will compete for titles in the 52nd annual Hanahan Invitational Tournament set for April 11-14.
The tournament has two divisions named for former Hanahan High Hawks baseball coaches, Tom Hatfield and Bill Steadman. Hatfield started the HIT in 1970 as a way to get a few local teams together for games during spring break. Steadman followed Hatfield at HHS and the tournament eventually swelled into a premier spring break stop as more teams from outside South Carolina accepted invitations to visit the Lowcountry.
States represented in the 2022 HIT are South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio and New York. Another squad will make its way into town from Washington, D.C.
“We do have some strong teams coming in,” Hanahan coach Brian Mitchell said. “We know locally we have some great teams but we have our hands full trying to win it. The team from D.C. is the team to beat. Their head coach is something like 316-80. They’re loaded. There is some quality baseball coming to town. We’re going to have to hunker down and play well.”
Eight of the local clubs are ranked inside the top 10 of their respective classifications by the South Carolina Baseball Coaches Association.
Last spring, Summerville High School rallied from a five-run deficit to edge Blessed Trinity from Roswell, Ga., with a run in the bottom of the seventh. It was the difference in the Green Wave’s 8-7 victory in the championship game. The 2021 field was smaller due to COVID concerns.
Summerville went on to capture the Class AAAAA Lower State title in 2021.
“It’s a good gauge to see how you’re playing going into the end of the season,” Mitchell said. “If you do well in the HIT, you’re going to go on and do well in the playoffs.”
Host sites for the first two days of the tournament are Hanahan, Goose Creek, James Island, Ashley Ridge, Summerville, West Ashley, Bishop England and Wando. Semifinal sites will be determined later. Hanahan will host the championship games on April 14.
There is also a junior varsity division, which was won by the host school last spring. Fifteen of the 17 squads set to compete are from the Charleston area.
