Paint Correction

Paint Correction is one of the most labor-intensive aspects of detailing, and critical to realizing your shine potential! Paint defects reduce the level of shine/gloss possible, and can even result in a hazy/cloudy finish. These defects create an uneven surface, one that diffuses & reflects light negatively. These defects can include: swirls, random isolated scratches, water spot etching, bird droppings, buffer holograms, and oxidation.
Combining specialized equipment, training, & experience, I safely reduce/remove defects while dramatically improving paint depth & clarity. Paint correction is an art form that separates true detailers from the rest, and a skill set few take the time to master. I offer three different polishing levels, the difference between them is essentially the % of defects each will remove. My Paint Corrections & Ceramic Paint Coatings are priced separately (so I can tailor them to your needs), but must be purchased together.                                                    Whether you have a brand new (or used) vehicle, I deliver results that will ensure your vehicle stands out from the crowd!

** Starting at prices apply to most cars - larger cars, SUV's & trucks will be higher **

Level 1 Paint Correction

Starting at $400

• Includes thorough hand-wash & paint decontamination to prep the finish for polishing.
• Light polishing typically achieves a 20-50% correction level, removing minor defects or light marring. 
• Ideal for new vehicles, or those  with minimal paint defects - primarily enhances gloss. 
• Protect your freshly polished finish, & further enhance gloss with one of my SB³ Ceramic Paint Coating options (additional charge).

Level 2 Paint Correction

Starting at $600

• Includes thorough hand-wash & paint decontamination to prep the finish for polishing.
• Compounding & polishing is performed to achieve a 70-85% correction level.
• A customer favorite for those looking to reduce visible swirls, scratches, water spots, or wash-inflicted defects.   
• A dramatic increase in paint depth & clarity, delivering an excellent balance of correction & increased gloss.   
• Protect your freshly polished finish, & further enhance gloss with one of my SB³ Ceramic Paint Coating options (additional charge).

Level 3 Paint Correction

Starting at $800

• Includes thorough hand-wash & paint decontamination to prep the finish for polishing.
• Offers additional polishing options that can be customized to your preferences. 
• OPTION 1: Additional compounding of heavier defects to achieve a 85-95% correction level.                                                                          • OR OPTION 2: An ultra-fine polishing step further maximizes paint depth & clarity - the absolute highest level of gloss possible. 
• Protect your freshly polished finish, & further enhance gloss with one of my SB³ Ceramic Paint Coating options (additional charge).
* I firmly believe paint "preservation" is more important than paint "perfection".  Your paints hardness, thickness, and defect severity will ultimately determine the % of correction safely obtainable. Even with my highest level of correction, remnants of deeper defects will remain.*
