FAQ About Paint Polishing / Paint Correction
Paint correction is the removal of swirls and scratches in your vehicles paint.
Paint correction is also referred to as paint polishing and paint buffing. Generally speaking they are all the same. They remove swirls and scratches from your vehicles paint and enhance the gloss and shine.
Our paint polishing / gloss enhancement will typically only shine your vehicles paint. It typically won't remove any swirls and scratches from your vehicles paint.
With paint correction this is where it will not only enhance the gloss and shine on your vehicles paint but it will also remove up to 99% of swirls and scratches depending on which paint correction package you choose.
If you have any other questions about paint correction or our paint polishing / gloss enhancement feel free to call, text, or e-mail us. You can also schedule an appointment for a free inspection.
With paint correction we can remove up to 99% of swirls and scratches. We never say 100% because there will always be some scratches that will be too deep to safely remove.
Before we do any paint correction a on a clients vehicle we perform a full inspection of the paint as well as use a special gauge that can actually measure your paint thickness. We do this to make sure we are not potentially doing more harm than good to your vehicle.
Having good knowledge, proper tools and equipment can make the paint correction process safe.
The cost of paint correction can vary depending on our clients budget as well as desired results. Typically paint correction cost starts around $500 +/- and with us that price includes a full exterior detail.
Generally they all mean the same.
From detailer to detailer they can mean different things such as how much polishing they are doing and what tools they are using.
Its important to ask each detailer what that service includes and what exactly they will be doing to the paint as well as what the price is for that service.
This will vary from vehicle to vehicle depending on how the vehicle is being cared for mostly.
On vehicles that are properly being cared for typically once every 3-5 years it will need some level of polishing / paint correction.
Yes absolutely! If you want to restore that brand new car look and shine back to your vehicle a paint correction is defiantly worth it!
Also once a paint correction is done we typically recommend and suggest having your vehicle ceramic coated to not only help keep your vehicle looking like that but it will also make washing super easy due to the amazing hydrophobic properties of the ceramic coating.
We offer our clients paint correction and ceramic coating packages as well. Be sure to check out our ceramic coating packages on our website. You can also call, text or e-mail us for more information.
