PAINT CORRECTION SERVICES

Remember how good your car’s finish looked when you first saw it on the showroom floor? The depth and gloss of the paint is what made you fall in love with the car in the first place, and it is exactly that which draws the most attention. Sure your car’s finish may still shine, but shine means nothing without the depth and clarity that only comes from proper machine polishing performed by an Advanced Paint Correction Specialist.

Paint correction (swirl removal), is a labor intensive process utilizing nano-technology abrasives (compounds and polishes) applied either by random orbital or rotary buffers…or both. The art of safe, modern, and proper buffing techniques is what separates the true professional detailer from all the rest, and it is a skillset that is mastered by very few.

To give a few examples of the before and after difference of proper paint correction, please refer to the photos below:



Single-Stage (1-step) Paint Correction Restoration

EST. TIME: 1-2 Days (Reqired at Studio)

COST:

Most Cars $425.00
SML SUV/Trucks $525.00
LRG SUV/Trucks $625.00

($50 off when bundled with an interior detail service)

As the name suggests, this level of paint correction utilizes just one stage of machine polishing (also referred to as one-step polishing).

While not considered a “perfection detail” given the single stage process, a big transformation in the condition of the paint can be achieved. On softer paints (Japanese cars for instance), we can usually remove 50-70% of all swirls, haze, and light defects, whereas on harder paints (German brands), this could be 30-50%.

There are a lot of different variables that dictate just how much correction that you can safely achieve in a one step process, and we approach each car and paint system accordingly to maximize results for the given budget or goals. There is no one system or product that works for all vehicles, and we are well-versed in all the modern polishes and techniques so that each vehicle can be tailored to accordingly.

  • 24-step hand wash over the entire vehicle: wheels, arches, all bodywork including door, engine, and trunk jambs

Multi-Stage Paint Correction Restoration

EST. TIME: 2 - 3 days

When you step up to the realm of multi-stage paint correction, you’re significantly improving the finish by removing all of the swirls, and all but the heaviest of scratches and defects.

The photo examples above (before and after images) are of the multi-stage process and as you can see, the transformation is significant.

This process starts with a heavy compounding machine polishing stage to remove the defects, and then followed by a secondary polishing stage to refine the finish and increase gloss and clarity.

Given the differences in paint types, condition, and size of vehicles, the rate for the Multi-Stage Paint Correction varies, but we will consult with each vehicle owner to provide a more precise pricing structure. The paint type and condition will also dictate the level of correction, but typically this process on most cars will get rid of 80-95% of all defects. And at this level of correction, you’re getting very close to that of a brand new vehicle!

INCLUDES:

  • 24-step hand wash over the entire vehicle: wheels, arches, all bodywork including door, engine, and trunk jambs
  • Vehicle is hand dried using blown air and synthetic absorber towels
  • Full paint decontamination with clay bar treatment (removes embedded road grime, tar, tree sap, brake dust and fall-out.)
