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.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCIV) — Some Hanahan residents are unhappy about potential plans for a new apartment complex.
The plot is 17 acres of land near Tanner Hall. Right now the land is zoned for single-family use, but the developer wants to change it to multi-family use to build about 300 apartments.
"It's zoned single-family dwellings and it would hold about 70 additional homes. It's up for rezoning now," said Sean Kennedy, a Tanner Hall resident of 16 years. "I want to point out- this is for the second time in less than six months."
Kennedy says he wants the acres to be homes since that is what the land is zoned for. There are signs all throughout the neighborhood saying, "Say no to re-zoning."
"We have more apartments than what is needed," Kennedy said. "You can go half a mile, a 5-minute walk, and there are hundreds and hundreds of apartments."
"They are going to negatively affect my home, my community, my neighborhood, and my quality of life," said Brittany Wood, a Tanner Hall resident of two years.
The developer, Panther Resident Management, feels differently than the residents. They are requesting the City of Hanahan to re-zone the property.
"We think this project is a huge win-win for the City of Hanahan," said Eric Wardrop, principal at Panther Residential Management. "There are housing shortages all over Charleston. Hanahan is no different."
The planning commission meeting was supposed to happen Tuesday night but now is pushed to February. Wardrop said they have been meeting with city officials and residents to build the best plan for the community.
"[The current plans] included shifting buildings, enhancing landscaping buffers, enhancing security and procedures throughout the complex, fence around the gated community," said Wardrop. "A project like this is not detrimental to Hanahan where housing is expensive; not a lot of affordable options."
Still, Tanner Hall residents are concerned.
"No one wants to see Hanahan become a sea of apartment complexes like you can see in other parts of Charleston," said Wood.
The next planning commission meeting for the City of Hanahan is on February 2.

The 18th hole at Kiawah Island's Ocean Course.
As part of GOLF’s course rating process for 2022-23, our fleet of 100-plus expert panelists identified the best golf courses in South Carolina. Browse the links below to check out all of our course rankings, or scroll down to see the best courses in South Carolina.
GOLF’s other course rankings: Top 100 Courses in the World | Top 100 Courses in the U.S. | Top 100 Courses You Can Play | Top 100 Value Courses in the U.S. | America’s Best Municipal Courses | The 100 Best Short Courses in the World
Ed. note: Some courses were omitted from our rankings because they did not receive enough votes.
1. Kiawah Island – Ocean Course (Kiawah Island) [1, P]
The blend of tidal marshes, scrub-topped dunes, live oaks and the soothing sound of the Atlantic on every hole make this one of the South’s most memorable playing experiences. Though the course just turned 30 years old, it already has an illustrious history of hosting big-time events, none more memorable than the drama-filled 1991 “War by the Shore” Ryder Cup. Much more short grass has been added around the green complexes since then and now the design is more thought-provoking rather than terror-inducing. Many of its greens are plateaued, with some of the more pronounced coming on the 3rd, 11th and 14th holes. Phil Mickelson more than handled the putting surfaces on his way to his historic win at the 2021 PGA Championship.
2. Yeamans Hall (Hanahan) 
Marrying classic Seth Raynor design with coastal South Carolina topography, Yeamans presents a charming tour of Redan, Biarritz and Road holes woven through marshland and magnificent live oaks. Over the years, the course’s original wonder faded as bunkers grew in and green complexes shrank. But a two decade-long renovation based on Raynor’s original property maps — discovered in the clubhouse attic — has returned this Golden Age masterpiece to its original brilliance.
3. Harbour Town (Hilton Head Island) [1, P]
The professionals weren’t sure what to make of Harbour Town when they first tangled with it in 1969. Unlike other courses built in that timeframe, this design by Nicklaus and Dye didn’t rely on length as much as it did in demanding accuracy off the tee as the golfer shaped shots around live oaks and stately pines. Precise iron play on the uniquely configured greens was also a must. But soon pros found standout holes abound, including the V-shaped green at the short 9th and the finishing stretch from 13 in. Pete and Alice Dye’s trip to Scotland in the mid-1960s proved the genesis for bulwarking the 13th green with railroad ties. Even 50+ years after the course opened, Harbour Town’s exemplar holes remain as compelling and interesting as anything modern architecture has to offer.
4. Congaree (Ridgeland) 
The number of par-4s on a course generally outnumber its par-5s and par-3s, and as such, go a long way in defining a course’s quality. The better the range of such holes, the better the course. From two of Fazio’s all-time finest short two-shotters (the 3rd and 15th) to some of his best long ones (the 6th, 11th and 17th) this design excels. Layer on the club’s desire for the fastest, firmest playing surfaces possible and the course flourishes.
5. Palmetto GC (Aiken) 
One of the great starts to the game with a series of diverse two-shotters leading the golfer well away from the Stanford White clubhouse. Each green is so good, and no surprise why: Alister MacKenzie lent a hand to them when he was working in neighboring Augusta. Picking favorite holes is difficult in the wake of Gil Hanse’s excellent restoration. Two of the best, though, are the one-shot 7th, with its shelf green reminding many of the 6th at Royal Dornoch, and the par-5 14th, which falls downhill in the most appealing manner imaginable. The finish is fascinating, too, with a couple of short par-4s in the final four. That works at Prestwick in Scotland, and it works here too.
6. Long Cove (Hilton Head Island)
7. Chechessee Creek (Okatie)
8. Secession (Beaufort)
9. CC of Charleston (Charleston)
10. Sage Valley (Graniteville)
11. May River – Palmetto Bluff (Bluffton) [P]
12. The Dunes (Myrtle Beach) [P]
13. Kiawah Island – River (Kiawah Island) [P]
14. Bulls Bay (Awendaw)
15. Caledonia (Pawleys Island) [P]
16. Kiawah Island – Cassique (Kiawah Island) [P]
17. Greenville – Chanticleer (Greenville)
18. Camden (Camden)
19. Old Tabby Links (Okatie)
20. Musgrove Mill (Clinton)
For GOLF’s course rankings lists, each panelist is provided a list of hundreds of courses and “buckets,” or groupings. If they believe the course to be among the best in its category (World, U.S. Value, etc.), they check the corresponding box to place it in a specific bucket. Panelists are also free to write in courses they felt should have been included on the ballot. Points were assigned to each bucket; to arrive at an average score for each course, we divide its aggregate score by the number of votes. From those point tallies, the courses are then ranked accordingly.
The key to the process is the experience and expertise of our panel. Hailing from 15 nations and all the worldwide golf meccas, each of our 115 handpicked panelists has a keen eye for architecture, both regionally and globally. Many of our panelists have played more than 1,000 courses in 20-plus countries.
Because we don’t prescribe a set method to assess courses as other ranks do, no one opinion carries the day — our rank is a democracy. Some panelists believe that enjoyment is the ultimate goal, and thus prioritize design attributes such as width and playing angles, while frowning on upon having to constantly hunt for balls in thick rough. Other panelists value challenge and the demands of hitting every club in the bag. Still others consider a course’s surroundings and overall environment of paramount importance, thereby emphasizing the setting and naturalness of the course. In the end, allowing raters to freely express their tastes is what produces the desired eclecticism in our Top 100 lists.

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.”

ST. STEPHEN —It was an eventful week for the Hanahan Hawks, but it ended about like it should have for the seventh-ranked team in Class AAA against a winless Class AA squad.
The Hawks, now guided by interim coach Steve Blanchard, used some second half theatrics to take out rival Timberland, 30-24, on Sept. 16 in a non-region high school football clash.
Hanahan improved to 3-0 while Timberland fell 0-5.
It was an impressive victory for the Hawks, considering the unexpected winds of change that blew earlier in the week. The Berkeley County School District released a statement Sept. 14 saying Blanchard was taking over for third-year coach Art Craig on an interim basis with no further details.
It remains unclear what Craig’s status is with the program or whether he will return this season. The school district said it couldn’t comment on personnel matters.
“This was a great game,” Blanchard said. “We had a lot of stuff going on this week, so we knew we had to corral them a little bit. For us to come back like this in the second half is a testament to our coaches’ halftime adjustments. They did an amazing job. I’m so proud of our kids.”
The Hawks found themselves in a battle against the upset-minded Wolves and trailed 16-0 at halftime. The second half belonged to the Hawks, though.
Running back Kevon Rivera’s 8-yard run capped a 43-yard drive with 50 seconds left to put the Hawks ahead, 28-24. A pass on the 2-point conversion was successful.
Hanahan’s defense denied the Wolves on four downs near midfield to secure the victory, which would have marked a successful return to Timberland for Craig. He won two state championships and almost 200 games with the Wolves before taking over Hanahan prior to the 2020 season.
Instead, it goes down as win No. 1 for Blanchard in the 2022 campaign and the first for the Hawks here since 2002. It also snapped a four-game skid in the series, now led by Timberland, 18-8.
“Any time you play a game here you can throw out the records,” Blanchard said. “Timberland is always going to play hard. They’re a county team. We’re a county team. This is just how our games play out.”
Blanchard, a 1984 Berkeley High graduate, was previously head coach at Estill and Andrews high schools and served as an assistant for several programs, including Timberland and Berkeley. He became Hanahan’s defensive coordinator in 2013.
Timberland dominated the first half against the visitors, scoring all of its points in the second quarter to build a 16-0 halftime advantage. Wolves running back Omari Jenkins broke the stalemate on a 7-yard run with 9:37 left in the second quarter but the extra point was blocked.
After the Wolves tackled Rivera in the end zone for a safety with under three minutes left in the first half, Timberland went 45 yards to extend its lead on Jakiri Simmons’ 21-yard burst around the outside with under a minute remaining in the opening half.
The Hawks sprang to life in the third quarter to get back in it.
Following an exchange of punts, the Hawks put together a 55-yard scoring drive to get on the board. Fullback Cooper Smith ran the final eight yards for the touchdown with 5:47 remaining in the period and Rivera added the 2-point run as the Hawks cut their deficit in half, 16-8.
Timberland’s first crucial mistake came back to haunt the Wolves moments later. Hanahan jumped on a fumble at the Wolves 15 and turned it into quarterback Jaden Cummings’ 1-yard plunge. Cummings tacked on the 2-point run to even it at 16-16 just over two minutes after the first touchdown.
Hanahan’s defense recorded a quick three-and-out and the Hawks started on their own 26 on the first play of the fourth quarter. Hanahan surgically moved down the field on a go-ahead drive.
Rivera carried it 16 yards to the 1 and Cummings scored from short distance for the second time with 7:38 left in the game. The extra point, though, was no good and the Hawks led, 22-16.
After another exchange of punts, Timberland’s sideline woke up when Jenkins sprinted 66 yards for a tying touchdown with 3:16 remaining. He kept it on the 2-point play right up the middle to put the Wolves ahead, 24-22.
Hanahan wiggled off the hook on its last drive after Rivera returned the kickoff to Timberland’s 43 with 3:04 remaining. The final possession was mostly Rivera running behind his blocking.
“We give Kevon the ball when we have to,” Blanchard said.
The Hawks host Porter-Gaud Sept. 23 and Timberland goes to West Ashley.
