What Is Paint Correction?

Paint correction is a term that is commonly used by both professional car detailers and car cleaning enthusiasts worldwide to describe the process of restoring and rejuvenating the paintwork of a vehicle, mostly through the elimination of surface imperfections, that dull, oxidize, or haze the surface by reflecting light off in various directions, therefore detracting from a true and proper, clean, sharp, reflection. These imperfections include things like swirl marks & fine scratches, bird dropping etching & acid rain etching, hologramming & buffer trails, and random isolated deep scratches.

 

The term paint correction should only really be used if these imperfections are properly removed and are not just merely covered up or hidden with filler based products. The actual corrective process itself comprises of a small amount of clear coat or paint being removed from the surface with the use of abrasive polishes, which are applied and worked in with appropriate polishing machines, in order to level out the surface.

  • Polish/Enhancement

    Polish/Enhancement

    This is our entry level service for paint correction. Although our cheapest option and not what we would consider a true "correction" this option will remove some light swirls, fading, and haze. This Polish/Enhancement will add gloss and depth to your vehicle, giving it a much better look than waxing alone can do. This process is much safer than "quick buff" jobs and will not leave damage and rotary trails behind on your vehicle. Each paint correction package that we offer will also include a "exterior" detail, paint decontamination/clay to prep the surface for the process. We finish this by applying a professional grade wax that will not evaporate from your vehicles surface when temps reach 135 degrees like over the counter waxes do.

     

    This package is great for those looking to add a better look on a practical budget! Great for new vehicles! Contact us today for more information or come by for a free evaluation. Take the time to look at our Facebook albums for any of our correction projects by clicking HERE!

  • Single Step Correction

    Single Step Correction

    A true paint correction package. Much more time consuming than our entry level package above, and the sole focus being to remove as many of the paint defects as possible(in a single step or pass around the car) while giving a great looking finish with good depth and shine! We use professional pads, products, and machines and find the best combination for your vehicle to achieve a balance of the most correction possible with a refined finish. Our goal and a good rule of thumb on a "single step" correction is removal of 70-75% of the surface swirls, fine scratching, and haze. Things that distort the reflection of your vehicle and give it a dull look. Like all of our paint correction packages this will include a "exterior" detail, paint decontamination/clay to prep the surface for the process. We finish this by applying a professional grade wax that will not evaporate from your vehicles surface when temps reach 135 degrees like over the counter waxes do. This package is great for vehicles with minor exterior paint defects/damage. Will make a big difference not only in gloss and reflection, but also improve your damaged paint giving your vehicle a better value!

  • Two Step Paint Correction

    Two Step Paint Correction

    One of our most popular paint correction packages. Much more involved than a single step correction and will yield much better results for those looking to really transform a vehicles look! Instead of having to balance "correction and the final finish" in one step this process has two corrective steps. Using professional tools and products we start the first step with the sole focus of removing defects and damage of the painted surfaces. We use a more aggressive, but safe pad and compound choice for this step. After this step is complete our goal is to achieve 90-95% removal of defects and damage. To better explain, if we stopped at this step 90-95% of defects would be corrected but the finish would be hazy from the more aggressive pad and compound choice needed to give maximum correction.  We start the second step with a finish polish/pad combination that is designed to remove any haze, and light abrasion marks left by the previous step. This final step gives the like new look, tremendous reflection, depth and total transformation! Different from the two previous packages above, on this correction we use a final polish that when topped with our sealant gives your vehicle one year of protection when properly  maintained! Like all of our paint correction packages this will include a "exterior" detail, paint decontamination/clay to prep the surface for the process.

     

    This package is great for vehicles with moderate to major exterior paint defects/damage. Not only does this package give your vehicle a major transformation but also improves your damaged paint giving your vehicle a better value and in many cases a look far better than when new!

  • Wet Sanding/Multi Step Correction

    Wet Sanding/Multi Step Correction

    For those customers who desire perfection and a near flawless or flawless finish this is our most involved and in depth package. To get past the 90-95% correction results of our previous "two step" correction much more time is needed. More steps have to be taken to achieve the desired results. This package on average has taken us 25-30 hours of time on a single vehicle with some jobs that come to mind taking 40+ hours to complete! Wet sanding can remove the maximum amount of defects/damage and can also remove "orange peel" and give a very pristine and slick look. We have all the proper tools and gauges needed to professionally and safely offer/perform this service. Much more time and inspection is invested into each panel using professional lighting designed to expose defects that are hard to find.

     

    With multiple steps and more time invested we are able to give that near flawless, and in many cases what is considered a flawless finish! Like all of our paint correction packages this will include a "exterior" detail, paint decontamination. With this package we spend much more time on the clay and decontamination steps to prep the surface for the process. We can finish this package out with your choice of professional grade wax, sealant, or even our 5 or 7 year ceramic coatings with warranty(see ceramic coatings for more information). Contact us today for more information or come by for a free evaluation.
