WHAT IS PAINT CORRECTION?

This is something we can go into great detail explaining, but we will try to simplify the basics of what paint correction is. Paint Correction is the process of leveling/removing swirl marks and scratches in the top layer of your paint’s finish

HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?

Paint correction done properly involves a great deal of concentration, experience and knowledge. We use a variation of different levels of compound, polishing pads and machines to level/remove scratches and oxidation from the surface of the paint. We check the paint’s thickness to determine which is the best and least invasive process of bringing the color back to your paint. After our compounding has removed the defects, we begin the polishing and “jeweling” process to bring the highest lustere and gloss to the paint’s finish.

HOW LONG DOES THIS PROCESS TAKE?

Unfortunately, paint correction is a process that must be quoted on a vehicle by vehicle basis. The time involved to do a proper correction will vary depending on the cause of the paint defects and the results you desire. We will be more than happy to give you an estimate and discuss the process required to bring your vehicle back to your desired condition. Typically, this process takes a minimum of 4 hours and can take up to 2 weeks.

WHERE DO SCRATCHES COME FROM?

It’s hard to narrow down the reason for each vehicle. But, here are a few possible reasons:

  • Road dirt
  • Brake dust
  • Tar
  • Tree Sap
  • Bird Droppings
  • Sprinklers Overspraying/Water spots
  • People brushing against the car with their clothing or bags
  • Poor Detailing techniques and/or products
  • Improper washing techniques/car washes

*We recommend a Ceramic Pro permanent paint protection package after our paint correction service to keep swirls and scratches from coming back
