This Explains Paint Correction
WHAT IS PAINT CORRECTION?
Paint Correction is something we can go into great detail explaining, but we will try to simplify the basics of what paint correction is. Paint Correction is the process of leveling/removing swirl marks and scratches in the top layer of your paint’s finish.
HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?
Paint correction done properly involves a great deal of concentration, experience and knowledge. We use a variation of different levels of compound, polishing pads and machines to level/remove scratches and oxidation from the surface of the paint. After our compounding has removed the defects, we begin the polishing and “jeweling” process to bring the highest luster and gloss to the paint’s finish.
HOW LONG DOES THIS PROCESS TAKE?
Unfortunately, paint correction is a process that must be quoted on a vehicle by vehicle basis. The time involved to do a proper correction will vary depending on the cause of the paint defects and the results you desire. We will be more than happy to give you an estimate and discuss the process required to bring your vehicle back to your desired condition. Typically, this process takes a minimum of 4 hours and can take up to 1 week.
WHERE DO SCRATCHES COME FROM?
It’s hard to narrow down the reason for each vehicle. But, here are a few possible reasons:
Sprinklers Over spraying/Water spots
People brushing against the car with their clothing or bags
Poor Detailing techniques and/or products
Improper washing techniques/car washes
