Comprehensive Auto Collision Services

I-CAR Gold-Certified Repair Facility

Lake Area Collision provides you with fast and high-quality auto repairs that are backed by lifetime "Gold" warranty, which is why we are an I-CAR Gold-certified repair facility.

Our Equipment

By using the latest, modern day equipment, we are able to provide you with collision repair services such as full engine, suspension, drive train and frame repair and removal. Our friendly personnel make sure that you are given individual attention when you step into our facility. Furthermore, our team will ensure your auto parts are delivered as per our high-quality standards and your vehicle is returned to you in top condition.
The Blackhawk “Power Pro 360” drive-on frame bench allows you to perform a 360-degree multiple pull on vehicles at any height. It also equips our technicians to perform repairs on any unibody or frame-equipped vehicle with heavy damages.
We use the "Shark" electronic, computerized measuring system equipped with sonar, which helps us zero in on the structural damage of your vehicle, including hidden or secondary damages. Essentially, the Shark measuring system provides you a blueprint of your vehicle before and after we perform repairs on the damage areas.
Our facility is also equipped with two Spraybake downdraft prep stations, which we use to prime vehicles and refinish panels. These booths are fitted with portable IRS infrared paint-baking lamps as well, which allows us to bake paint finishes within 20 minutes.
Additionally, we have a drive-thru, downdraft Spraybake paint booth, comprising of a completely heated dust-free refinishing environment. Our highly trained refinishing technicians apply Sikkens AzkoNobel base clearcoat finishes to your vehicle using this booth. Following this, they force bake the finishes at 160° for 30 minutes to get that hard-as-nails, “wet look” finish. We use in-house computer mixed paints that provide you a perfect color match every time.

On-Site or Off-Site Estimations

We usually perform drive-thru estimating, during which time your vehicle is given a power wash, which is followed by damage analysis. In addition, your vehicle is given another wash and cleaned inside out after we're done with restoring it to its fine condition.

Full A/C Services

We provide full, in-house A/C services for all R134 systems. We use the RDI/MAC refrigerant machine that helps us remove old Freon and vacuum out the old oil, moisture and contaminants from your system. Furthermore, this machine also helps us replenish your system with fresh Freon and refrigerant oil.

At Lake Area Collision, we value the importance of environmentally friendly services. R1234yf, is a synthetic HFO refrigerant as a successor to R134a for automotive air-conditioning applications.  Developed by DuPont and Honeywell, it can be found in newer 2017 models of Jeep and Chrysler products.  We are proud to offer the new refrigerant R1234 recharging for your vehicles and use the Robinar AC1234-6 machine to recover, recycle and recharge your system.
