Paint Correction Details
Paint correction, also known as paint polishing, is the act of leveling paint to remove defects, including wash induced swirls, light scratches, hard water spots, bird dropping etchings, and scuffs via machine buffing. Through machine polishing we are also able to drastically improve the gloss of a vehicle’s paintwork. With a TLC Auto Detail paint correction, the defects will be actually removed, not just hidden like many other detail shops offer. Depending on the condition of your paint and the desired results, we can perform either a one step or multi-step paint correction. The services below range in price from $600 to over $2000 depending on how much labor is required to reach the desired goals.
Rejuvenation Detail (Single Step Paint Correction)
This service is designed mainly for brand new or fairly new vehicles that only have minor defects that need to be corrected. Most people would think that a new or nearly new vehicle that was just delivered wouldn’t need to be corrected, but unfortunately this is far from the truth. Most new vehicles need at least a one step correction service, if not more. Defects can include wash induced marring from the dealership wash bay, holograms from the production line, or even over spray from outside repairs while sitting on the lot at the dealership. With this package your vehicle will receive a one step machine polish before the surface is protected with sealant or wax (for maximum protection after correction check out our Modesta coating!!). For a new vehicle with light swirls and defects you can expect 90%+ correction, and you will truly have a brand new car. If you have a daily driven vehicle with some heavier defects, this package can be appropriate since it might not be a fiscally intelligent idea to spend lots of money correcting a car that sits out in the elements 24/7. For a vehicle that falls into this category you can expect 65%-80% correction depending on the initial condition of the paintwork.
This service includes:
Pricing starts at $600.
Restoration Detail (2 Step Paint Correction)
While a single step off correction will make a drastic difference in the gloss and clarity of a vehicle's paint, there are some instances where the desired results are not achievable with just one step off correction. For a vehicle that has heavier defects, or a client looking for as close to perfect as possible, we offer our Restoration Detail. This service includes everything from the Rejuvenation Detail and adds and additional step of paint correction. Depending on the initial condition of the paintwork, this service will remove 85-90% of the defects. Short of sanding a finish, this is the best correction that you can ask for.
Pricing starts at $1000.
