Does my vehicle need a Paint Correction?

Good question and you're not the only one to ask.

1

Here are some things to consider:

  1. Is your vehicle new, off the lot, with limited miles?

  2. Is your vehicle used, with low miles?

  3. Has your vehicle been around the block several thousand times and needs something to bring the paint back to life?

1

In every one of these scenarios, the answer is yes. Therefore, we don’t throw out a blanket price to complete the process. Vehicle one can probably skip a few steps and not need as much polishing as vehicle two or three. Vehicle two will need a bit more, and vehicle three will need a lot of time and patience to get it in tip top shape. We only charge you for the extent of the work needed.

But what is a Paint Correction?

Another good question.

1

Paint correction is a fine art that requires a lot of time, patience, and talent. It is the process of delicately removing imperfections on a vehicle’s finish and restoring it to a better than new state. These imperfections can be swirl marks caused by circular washing, automated carwashes, water spots, bird droppings, fine scratches, and the list goes on.

When done properly, an exceptionally fine amount of clear coat is removed, along with scratches and swirls in the clear coat. This leaves crystal clarity and pure reflections.

What exactly is the process of Paint Correction?

We thought you'd never ask.

1

First the car is washed eliminating any dirt and contaminants from the surface. Sounds simple but it is one of the most important parts of the process. If dirt and contaminants are not removed, it will damage your paint during buffing and polishing.

1

Once your vehicle is clean, we clay bar the surface. Another important step. Clay bars remove even more dirt and contaminants that typically can't be removed with a standard wash, or even through polishing and waxing. Note, this process does not remove scratches.

1

After careful inspection of the paintwork for imperfections, when needed we move to a technique called wet-sanding. If your car has deep scratches or orange peel, buffing and polishing may not be enough. With wet sanding, we remove the top layer of clear coat with very fine grit sandpaper. The surface will then go through extensive buffing and polishing to bring the shine back.

1

Depending on the amount and type of clear coat and the severity of imperfections, the next stage will vary vehicle to vehicle. Wet-sanded vehicles will require a multi-step polishing process with 3-4 types of pads and several types of polishes. These stages are required to achieve full correction. We go from most abrasive to very fine polishing.

After all the “correction” stages are completed, we seal up the vehicle’s paint to protect it from further damage.
