What is paint protection and why do I need it?
There are different forms of paint protection including waxes, sealants, and coatings. Waxes are the most basic and probably the most well known form. There are two types of waxes which are synthetic polymer based and carnauba which is plant based. Synthetic waxes are more durable and longer lasting where as carnauba waxes are said to provide a warmer glow along with a deeper shine. Sealants also vary in appearance and durablity, but typically offer a more durable and longer lasting shine than waxes. The longevity of sealants is typically 4 -8 months depending on the type used along with other variables such as weather, maintenance, and storage. We use only the best waxes and sealants available to ensure your vehicle continues to look great for months to come.
Paint Coatings are the latest and most advanced form of paint protection. Although they have been around a while now, these products have greatly increased in popularity the past few years among professionals and enthusiasts alike. Coatings cross-link and form a bond with the paints surface. This creates a measurable layer of protection that is harder and more protective than the clear coat. Coatings provide extreme shine and gloss along with scratch resistance and unmatched hydrophobic (water repellent) properties. The extreme slickness often associated with coatings makes it much more difficult for dirt and contaminants to stick to the surface, and allows for much easier maintenance. We use only the highest quality coatings from reputable manufacturers along with the proper preparation and application techniques. This ensures the proper bonding of the coating and it's durability for years to come. Paint correction is typically necesssary prior to the application of a coating in order to achieve a flawless finish which can then be preserved by the coating.
