Necessary Info About Paint Correction and Ceramic Coatings:
Paint correction and a ceramic coating is the most effective way to protect your vehicle, make your car stand out, and add more gloss and depth to your paint.

BUT, if you have a brand NEW car you may not need paint correction. As a professional, we can have that talk about protecting your INVESTMENT, that is a brand new car! Feel free to call me about getting a ceramic coating for your car!
What exactly is paint correction?
Simply put, Paint Correction is the mechanical leveling of your car's clear coat to a point where the paint is free of swirl marks and light scratches. This involves either a 1 or 2 step process of compounding and/or polishing in order to remove imperfections in the clear coat.
Not everyone needs or wants “perfect paint,” some are simply okay with much better but not perfect. Not everyone looks at their paint with a flashlight to inspect it from centimeters away, most people want just a simple "enhancement"; but some enthusiasts do desire perfect paint for show room results.
Swirl marks are very common among almost every vehicle. This is a result of improper washing methods or going to the automatic car wash. This can come out from a 1 step correction.
Light scratches like this ^^^ are also somewhat common from flying rocks, shopping carts, or sitting on your car. This is most likely to come out with a 2 step correction.
Water spots are very common and can be caused by improper wash methods or simply just a rain sprinkling. This can sometimes come out from a wash, but most likely they have been setting in for a while and need paint correction.
We take the time to communicate with you and help you to figure out exactly what we can do to fulfill your expectations while also staying in your budget.
