Paint Correction

Paint Correction:  Below Surface Defects

WHAT IS PAINT CORRECTION?

Paint Correction is the process of leveling/removing swirl marks and scratches in the top layer of your paint’s finish.

 

HOW DO WE DO IT?

Paint correction is a combination of art and science.  Because every car and owner is different our approach varies to address the specific problems. 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. Our approach is to determine which is the best and least invasive process of bringing the color back to your paint. After our compounding has removed the defects, we begin the polishing and “jeweling” process to bring the highest depth 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. Contact us to schedule an free evaluation and estimate and discuss the process required to bring your vehicle back to your desired condition.Generally, Paint Correction takes a minimum of several hours and can take up to several  weeks.
