1 Step Paint Polish To Remove Swirls And Paint Imperfections
Have you ever looked at your car in the sunlight and noticed what may look like spiderwebs all over your car? Those are called swirls and are very surface level imperfections that remain in the clear coat.
These scratches often hinder the amount of shine that your car has, but luckily our 1 Step Paint Polish can remove those swirls and make your paint shine again. Then you can protect it with something like our ceramic coatings!
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. We do offer both 1 Step Paint Polish as well as 2 Step Paint Correction.
BUT 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 showroom results. Even if your car needs a full paint correction, you may be okay with just our 1 step paint polish to make the paint shine before a ceramic coating.
Remove paint imperfections and make your paint shine
Most commonly the types of scratches that can be removed with only a polish, are swirls and small scratches. Usually these happen by improper wash practices, normal wear day to day, BUT even brand new cars will have swirls straight from the manufacturer. That's because while your brand new car is on the assembly line, being transported, test driven, and "taken care of" by the dealership; your brand new paint is getting marred before you even see it!
This is NOT a horrible thing and it's relatively easy to get out. Obviously you can make a judgment call on whether you need just a polish or the 2 Step Correction, but I always do a test spot to let you know what type of results we can produce with just a 1 step and see if your car needs a full correction.

Paint Polishing FAQ’s
Do you offer ceramic coatings?
Absolutely! We offer a 3, 6, and 9 year ceramic coating for all vehicles. It is an additional price of course, but its the longest lasting form of protection you can get.
Can I bring my car to you?
You sure can! While we don't have a shop, my at home garage is outfitted specifically for doing paint correction and ceramic coatings. We are still mobile and can service you at your home, the only drawback is that I would need your garage space to work.
What's the difference between the 1 Step and the 2 Step Correction?
1 Step Paint Polish is to remove surface level scratches and swirls, about 50% - 60% of imperfections will be removed
2 Step Paint Correction will be a more aggressive process that removes around 90% of imperfections, including all surface level swirls as well as deeper scratches.
How long does it last?
This is another “it depends” question because once it is polished and your paint is in great condition, in theory it could last for years… it's dependent on how you protect it and maintain it. Of course you could just get it waxed, but the far superior and most popular option is getting a ceramic coating. The difference is how durable and long lasting a ceramic coating is from a wax.
