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. Unfortunately brand new vehicles do not come free of paint defects, & they will be most noticeable on darker colors. When purchasing a new vehicle, I always recommend you tell the Dealer to not wash it (if possible). 

Combining specialized equipment, training, & experience, I reduce/remove these defects - while preserving as much of your original paint as possible. Paint correction is an art form that separates true detailers from the rest, and a skill set few take the time to master. Automotive paint varies greatly from one vehicle (or manufacturer) to the next. I select a specific combo of products & equipment to SAFELY achieve the desired results. I offer three different polishing options based off what level you want to take your finish to! The difference between them is essentially the % of defects each will remove, & level of gloss achieved. My Paint Corrections & Ceramic Paint Coatings are priced separately (so I can tailor them to your needs), but must be purchased together. Regardless of which level you choose, I will help ensure your vehicle stands out from the crowd!

• 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.*
