What is Paint Correction?
Paint Correction is the process where we remove a small portion of a vehicle’s clear coat in order to also remove imperfections in the paint and restore gloss and clarity to the paint.
There are a few steps in the Paint Correction process to make sure it is done safely and correctly. First, we start by doing an Exterior Detail to remove any loose dirt or debris that is not embedded in the clear coat off of the vehicle. We follow this with a iron decontamination and clay bar treatment. This gets everything that is embedded in the clear coat out before we go into paint correction.
At this point, the paint has been cleaned and stripped of all contamination down to the cleat coat. This is where we bring out the DA polisher and begin to correct the paint to a like new finish. There are 2 ways to go when correcting paint and they not only help with end results, but also help decide the price to have the service done.
If your vehicle is relatively new and has only light scratches or swirl marks, then the best route to take is a Paint Enhancement. A Paint Enhancement is a one step correction that removes very light scratches, swirl marks, oxidation, or etchings. This is a “top level” type of solution for those not so deep problems in the paint. A Paint Enhancement will probably not get everything out, but will restore a large majority of the imperfections. This is the most popular choice for people who don‘t want perfection, but want to see a good difference in the paint.
For those who are perfectionists and want every scratch that is possible to be taken out to be fixed, the Paint Correction is for you! The Paint Correction is a multi-step version of a Paint Enhancement and will get every scratch that can be removed, taken out. Most newer cars will not need this to get satisfying results.
We recommend taking a precautionary step to avoid having to get a Paint Correction by simply getting a Ceramic Coating as it will protect the paint and extremely lower the risks of getting those super deep scratches.
