Paint correction is—as the name implies—a service that improves any anomalies that have occurred to your vehicle’s factory paintwork.
But what is it exactly? How is it done? And are there any other improvements that can be done at the same time to make your ride showroom-beautiful once again? Read on to discover everything you need to know about paint correction and associated upgrades.
Paint correction is a process that repairs damage, such as scratches and chips. In addition to these more obvious flaws, it also polishes out the tiny damage that’s invisible to the naked eye. All paintwork degrades over time. Under a microscope, these look like spirals, swirls, and whorls.
These are the culprits that cause a vehicle’s paintwork to lose its factory shine, as well as eventually leading to paint fade. A paint correction service polishes out these anomalies, restoring the surface to its former glory.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking this is only relevant to older cars. As soon as a vehicle leaves the factory, the environment gets to work on that shiny façade. Even those that are only a few weeks or months old will already have issues—even if you can’t see them.
There are two ways to carry out paint correction: do it yourself or by a professional detailer. As with any cosmetic service, going the pro route requires a higher initial outlay but brings a much higher result.
A paint correction involves the following:
Of course, you need to provide a protective coating, as you’ve removed the factory one. This could be as simple as a topcoat wax. However, why would you go to all the effort and not add advanced protection?
The addition of paint protection film or a ceramic coating should really go hand-in-hand with a paint correction service. Ask any professional detailer and they’ll agree.
So… What are the benefits of paint correction? They can be defined as the following:
To be honest, we don’t understand why anyone would go to the expense and care of car paint correction without adding a protective top layer. No one in the South Florida region does PPF or ceramic coating better than we do (and yes, we do stand by that comment—as do our thousands of satisfied customers).
